Webaccess on HS-DH500GL
« on: December 29, 2008, 05:33:52 am »

Good morning,

I have set up infos on web panel to get an access from web.

Even i have:

- firewall off

- antivirus disconnected

- all outgoing communications allowed to web by router by default

When i submit the webaccess service formula:

If i chooze "Autoconfigure firewall" i have following answer:  UPnP Gateway not found and/or doesn't support port forwarding, use manual setup.(even UPnp is activated on routeur)

If i chooze Autoconfigure Firewall disable, port 9000, i have the answer:

Error accessing, check internet settings.


Have i forgotten something?

I do not understand.

Thanks for your attention

Aftre having reached Support at phone, 

The man indicates me to re-ilitialize the linkstation through the left panel of administrative interface.

Then 'restore'. 

Following that, web access config registration has been successfull.

It works now properly.
