Nas via ftp for a remote access

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

I've just installed my first nas system in my home network and I'm trying to set it up!


Nas is a D-link DNS313 (with a 2TB WD Caviar Green/64Mb) and I access it from a macbook via smb from finder.

If I set permissions on nas settings page (via browser), creating an account then I can't succeed in connect nas to my macbook.It says that user and pass are wrong (impossible!!)


Anyway someone suggests me to connect via ftp, even if I'm connected from my home network.

And I have to say that it works (even if I didn' try to write on the volume and I read that finder have only reading permissions)


Unfortunately I thought I could access the nas from the internet, because I set ftp server and portforwarded on the router...

No way...So I discovered dyndns...but I really didn't understand what it exactly is and how I can use it.


Could anyone help me to get it working?

Thanks a lot.




ehm..my "gear" is:


Internet provider: Fastweb (yes, I don't have public ip, but I can try a remote connection from another fastweb network, my parents' network)

Fastweb HAG plug in the WAN port of a D-Link dir-300(which assign "normal" IPs like 192.168.x.x) where is plugged both my nas and my macbook (macbook via wifi).

    • Cool! Do you have a link? Googled and didn't see anything yet.   Never mind... you're quick! I just noticed you updated it on the 1st page THANKS!!!!!!
    • I resolved the problem. Just set this coding in your config.plist:   "
                      <string>USB 10.13.4+ by PMHeart</string>
              </array>     "

    • I guess having pre{max-height: 500px;overflow: auto;} in CSS was too much for IPS Devs' tast.  Until an admin has hands on this, you still can use stylish plugin to accomplish it.     In fact, it is pretty easy than it appears - Just apply a simple click on the codebox (it will highlight it), then 'delete' key.
    • all the possible frequencyes i have added seems to work fine at the moment, i have added a lot of different frequencyes to support better all kinds of professional applications, inclunding strange sampling rates and goes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz, unfortunately 192 khz does not seems to work even on cards which should support it like the audigy rx, but other frequencyes just works fine and at the moment i have tested only the sound blaster audigy rx and the audigy sb0090 (1st gen audigy) and i can confirm that all the frequencyes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz does work on that card, so i think that such frequencyes should work on all the audigy 2, 2sz, 4 cards as well, tomorrow i will test with my sound blaster live! cards and i will let you know, but here are also some photos (pro tip: use cmd + alt/opton + 4 and then press space to make a screenshot of a single window):
