NAS Remote Access

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a client who is wanting me to setup some type of remote storage device. He is starting up a consulting business and is always on the move so remote access is a must. There will also be 2-3 other people that will need access as well. I have looked into the QNAP 4 bay units, but I'm unsure on how well the myQNAP Cloud Service will work. Does anyone have any experiences with remote access on these devices? I cannot seem to find anything.

Any input is appreciated.

FreeNAS box+forwarded ports SHOULD work. If he is using windows set up the clinet Pc to connect directly to that IP/port combo for the network storage(I don't use nas but that theoretically should work

Waldo129, I have a Qnap TVS-671. The Qnap is truly an incredible platform. I work as an IT Support engineer and I can't recommend these enough for small businesses, and they seem to enjoy them as well. The interface is fantastic, the functionality is incredible.

To your questions, you can connect a few different ways. First, you can connect directly to it suing aaa.aaa.aaa:port or by using bbb.myqnapcloud.com. The second way is a foolproof way to connect to it without using a port, albeit it goes through Qnap's servers, personally not a big deal at all. Either way, it is a flawless unit.

I know this can easily be done, but this client is pretty far away. I'll be setting up the device and shipping it to him. We are looking for "out of the box" setup. Thanks!

Great thanks for the info. I think we will just go this route and use the myqnapcloud.
