I am experiencing some problems with Cloud access to my new WD MyCloud, and I can tell I'm not the only one. I have browsed through several posts here, and I cannot seem to find a solution.
I get this message:
”Connected (Relay connection established)
Port forwarding failed to connect on port 8080 and port 8441”
When trying to connect through Firefox, it says unable to connect to server.
When trying to connect through FileZilla, it says “”Connection established” and then after a few seconds the connection is lost due to timeout.
I have followed TonyPh12345’s HOW TO (http://community.wd.com/t5/WD-My-Cloud/HOW-TO-Trou
In the WD’s browser UI I have set a static IP and enabled FTP.
I am not new to port forwarding (but Im no expert either), and I have forwarded the two ports that I have set, which are 8021 and 8441. I have tried several other ports as well.
I have tried putting the static IP under DMZ - no luck.
I cannot find an option to allow UPNP - is that a must? In this case the problem lies within my router..
I have a Cisco EPC5925 modem with build in router. The settings are limited, since it's provided by my internet provider. The MyCloud is connected via cable.
The MyCloud does have internet access and can be accessed through the app on my phone, for instance.
Any suggestions? Anything I may have overlooked?
*edited since my original post confused FTP with remote access..*

None of that has anything to do with FTP. FTP and Cloud Access aren't the same thing, and aren't related at all.
The ports aren't related, either.. FTP uses ports 20 and 21, regardless of what ports you have configured for Cloud access.

The following link will take you to ftp information in the Knowledge Base.
I hope this helps.

Thanks for your inputs so far, but I had already been through the two guides you have posted.
....and? So what did you change as a result?

As a result to the first replies, I changed the title of this post..
I had been through the guides that you have linked me to before I made this post in the first place, so unfortunately they did not help.
I have tried forwarding different ports, but the connection is still listed as Relayed. I have forwarded other ports as well for different apps, and they work fine, so the forwarding is done correctly.
I should be able to access the server from Filezilla, though, but I haven't had any luck so far.
