Finder Go/Connect to server...
« on: September 15, 2017, 05:45:44 am »
Hi there,
I configured yesterday successfully my first NAS device Buffalo 220D within small office network of 3 iMac's computers.
I'm wondering whether is it possible to access shared folders from different location (another iMac located in accountant office few miles away). It works perfectly fine with the web interface but is there any possibility to access files using Finder. I'm not sure if I can use Go/Connect to server to achieve that.
Thank you guys for any advice.

The standard protocol used for file sharing, SMB, is not routable. If the remote computer can access the local network via VPN it can be done but otherwise it's not possible.
