Good evening,
I purchased a 1TB click free backup and I have 3 computers I have set it up on. If the firewall is off it work perfect as soon as I turn the firewall on it says unavilable. I have put in all the computer ip address in the firewall settings, along with every file that was in the all users application data click free folder and said yes and allow. I'm using webroot security essentials. Any suggestions on how to get it to work with my firewall. The computer that has the harddrive connected works fine firewall or no firewall. The click free does not have a network connection it is the one you plug in to a usb port and you have a usb key you install on all the computers that are going to be using the drive.

what is the full name of the package? its more than likely that the ports are being blocked by the local firewall on each pc. Personally i would disable the firewall if you are being a router as it is will (in most circumstances) be adequete protection.

Fiigured out the issue the webroot security essentials program doesn't allow you to manually open up ports as soon as I disabled it open up the firewall from windows enabled the port numbers everything worked. Removed webroot security essentials and installed eset and have never looked back
