Filezilla not seeing my remote usb storage device on my computer

#1 Post by mikeh@eventeasy.com » 2021-01-12 20:56

Filezilla is not seeing my remote usb storage device on my computer, I have 2 USB ports, one used for the mouse, the other which I plug my storage device into. Filezilla sees all my files on my computer hard drive but not the remote???

Your drive should show up under /Volumes

Make sure you allow FileZilla to access the device if prompted to by macOS, you can also grant permission on the Privacy and Security page of macOS' settings.

Weird, a firewall conceptually shouldn't affect USB at all.
