I am having a problem accessing my LinkStation from outside the home network.

IP Address: 192.168.1.10

Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

Default Gateway Address: 192.168.1.1 (Netgear router)

Primary DNS Server Address: 192.168.1.1 (Netgear router)

Secondary DNS Server Address: blank

 

 

Web Access Settings

Web Access Service: Enable

HTTPS/SSL Encryption: Disable

Use BuffaloNAS.com: Enable

BuffaloNAS.com Name: *******

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

You need to go onto your netgear router and forward port 9000 to 192.168.1.10 for TCP.

Once this is done correctly you will have access from a remote connection.

PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.

Under  Port Forwarding/Port Triggering I added a Custom Service to Port Forwarding

 

Service Name: LinkStation

Start port: 9000

End Port: 9000

Service Type: TCP (Not TCP/UDP or UDP)

Server IP Address: 192.168.1.10

 

Tested from http://canyouseeme.org/ to the external IP address gathered by the web site to port 9000

 

Received the following reply: Error: I could not see your service on 6X.61.176.235 on port (9000)

 

Could I be missing something else?

Yes, if canyouseeme.org is saying there is an error then you have not step up the port forwarding correctly or it is not working on the router.

PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.

Could there be a routing issue from external to internal? Do I need to set anything else up like a 3rd party DNS? Is there another port I could check on my computer to see if any ports work coming in?
