My first post - be gentle! My knowledge of networking is scanty..
I am trying to get the Linkstation Live Web Access to work.
I have a 750gb unit running through a netgear router.
I have set up a service to allow TCP/UDP via port 9000.
I told the firewall to forward traffic to 192.168.0.4
I set up a static IP for the linkstation as above.
I have tried UPnP on and off.
From within the LAN it works fine.
Outside the LAN if I go through buffalonas.com and enter my linkstation name then I get a time-out.
If I put the IP into the browser as http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:9000
I get a time out.
If I put the IP into the browser as http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
without the port then I get asked for my login details then get into the browser configuration screen. I can't access any of my files but I can alter my setup!
I can login via FTP on the browser (as I enabled FTP server) and browse but not into the shared folders. I can download the manual from the info folder over the WAN but I can't access my shared folders.
To do this I had to enable DMZ server and allocate 192.168.0.4 as the default server. With DMZ off then nothing happens - time out.
I tested to make sure port 9000 was open using the remote 'can you see me dot com' app. It is.
I know that there is traffic from the linkstation to my PC here at work, but I don't seem to be able to access the correct 'bit' of the linkstation.
Any help very warmly accepted.
