Just picked up a N299 and want to be able to connect to it via the net. The manual describes needing to setup my router's virtual server setting, but I can't seem to locate this area of my Netgear DG834GV modem/router.
Is this a simply process to set up on most routers?
On a computer that is connected directly to the router via cable or wireless 1) http://192.168.1.1 2) enter username/pw 3) go port forwarding options and forward the port to your http on your NAS - IF u are unsure of the port ..its 80 by default but i am unable to get it working using port 80 hence i change it to another port .. e.g 5217(changing of the port is done by the web console page of your NAS 4) type this into your explorer(i.e,firefox) - http://<your ip address>:<your port number >
replace <your ip address>:<your port number > with your ip and port
if your external ip changes too often you can subscribe to services such as www.dyndns.com for a dynamic dns
Thanks for the reply Eugene. I'll explore these options. The N299 manual mentions changing settings for the DDNS (which I think I need to do), but I can't find this area when I log into the device!? I think its a bit of a case of experimenting with settings, etc until I eventually get it working. I also want to make sure the connection is secure as well. Anyway thanks for your advice. Mike
