Now i want to go to house B and elave my WDCloud in house B, and still acess my content, i cana cess it via the desktop application, with means my routers is configured to accept outside connections, now thing is i saw a ftp option on the WDCloud Dashboard, how do i use it.

 

i have a user with password setup on that dashboard

 

on xbmc i go FTP SERVER and asks me for the following  information

 

Protocol: FTP Server

Server Adress:  do i put my outside IP here?

Remote path: im not sure how set path , anyone with root acess to WB can tell me what the patch is to public share?

Hello,

 

Please see the user manual on page 80 related to FTP Access

Also take a look of the following KB article with information about using FTP
