Can I change the port
« on: November 29, 2014, 01:38:45 pm »
     I am having trouble accessing my drive through the web via ftp when I am away from my house. I have another buffalo drive that I set up a few years ago and I am able to access it via ftp with no problems. I recently bought a second buffalo and I can not access it through ftp when I am not at home. I believe the problem is because both buffalo's are using the same port and my router is getting them confused. Is there a way to change the port one of the stations? If you don't think this is the problem, please send me in the right direction

I can only set up port forwarding to port 21 once. I have two Nas buffalo drives. Ho can I access both and I can only use port forwarding to port 21 once?

Correct you can only port forward one port per device but the external can be anything. Doesnt have to be 21. Examples below:

Name -> IP Address -------> Internal Port -> External Port -> Internet IP -> url
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Nas1---> 192.168.11.101 -> 21 ------------> 4567 ---------> 88.8.88.8 -> 88.8.88.8:4567
Nas2---> 192.168.11.102 -> 21 ------------> 10212 --------> 88.8.88.8 -> 88.8.88.8:10212

And this is how you would have to set it up. Internal port wont matter if there the same as the ips are different. The external is what matters. Though some routers dont like that so it might not take those settings.

Do NOT take ANY port below 1024.
Units I own: TS-XL, TS-WXL, LS-WVL, TS-RXL,  TS5400, TS-RVHL,

I don't work for Buffalo but i do love there products enough to help people
