 I need some help I have a Linkstation Live (CHL) 1TB model. I have had it for about about a month now.

 I had it all setup and working properly and it was great. I and my friends I gave user accounts to were able to access my Linkstation one of three ways 1) FTP Client, 2) site and 3) Web.

 However in the past week and a half when I was gone and out of town I tried to access my Linkstation from away and could not connect. I figured it could have been just me or where I was at.

 However I started to receive a couple emails from my friends asking if something was wrong, right then and there I knew it was not me and was something else.

 When I got back home I checked it out and could not find anything wrong. I powered it off and powered it back on.....Nothing same efffect cannot connect to it at all.

 I then checked my router to make sure it was still setup properly and was forwarding the FTP port to the Linkstation, everything was setup like before.


 I do not know what the problem is at all. I and neither can my friends connect to my Linkstation at all either through the site, via an FTP client or through the web.


 I need some help and any help would be greatly appreciated.

   Are you able to access the GUI and shares from your local network? What info is being displayed in the Nas Navigator?
PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.

Yes I am able to access the drive from my network and also through NAS Navigator.

But neither my friends or I  still cannot get in through FTP, Buffalonas and web.

 I checked my Router and it has the FTP port forward on and directed to my Linkstations IP within my network. It was working previously just fine until a week ago when it stopped working.

 What do you mean what info is being displayed in the NAS Navigator? Do you mean the information in the lower right corner?
