Question about Coolmax HD-211-eSATA Hard Drive
Indeed, it sounds like a sharing problem. But, based on your explanation, I'm not sure what your issue is as your terminology is not standardized.
Example: you said, "I am trying to get another 2nd computer recognized on the hard drive." What would be more accurate, is that you are trying to get the 2nd computer to recognize the 1st computer so you can access the 2nd computer's hard drive.
On the other hand, you said the hard drive uses a network interface, and you have it connected to the router. So does it have some kind of web based interface? No, if what I read about it says that it uses USB 2.0 and eSATA, which means it is directly connected to the 1st computer, and so it would have to be shared to the 2nd computer via the 1st computer.
I also note you don't specify any operating system, which is absolutely required. Because, for example: Windows 10 has sharing problems; I'm a professional, and I haven't bothered till they fix it.
You said: "I registered the ID and password", which does sound like you're using Windows to set up a share. But then you say, "Did Run //storage/person" which means nothing to me. As that's not any way to set up a share that I'm aware of. (Maybe I'll learn something ;-)) And then you say, "2nd computer's hard drive was not recognized" and that's confusing, because I thought you were trying to see the Coolmax which is on the 1st computer, right? Or is it on the 2nd computer. So it's really not clear what you're doing, or what you think you're trying to do. If you clear this up, I'd be happy to see what I could do to help.

What drive did you put in there ?
Make sure it is connected directly to a USB 2.0 port on the computer some enclosures dont like hubs and even if it did work from a hub you should ensure the hub has its own power supply. Also only use the cable that came with it not one that looks the same that you may have lying around.

SOURCE: Hi I have a 'COOLMAX
I had problems with mine after a few years, it wouldn't show up in windows. I took it apart and the hard drive had moved away from the front panel and unplugged itself. there are 4 screws on the bottom that hold the hard drive in place, they must have loosened allowing the drive to move back unplugging itself from the panel. thought I had lost a few years worth of backed up pictures, glad it was that simple.
