Backing up to Cloud Storage device off the network

Is this possible?  All I want to do is plug it in to my computer and back it up.  I don’t want to do that over my network.

Yes supposedly you can connect the WD My Cloud directly to a computer using an Ethernet cable. You may have to set IP addresses for both devices if they do not auto default to using addresses within the same IP address pool. You cannot use the USB port on the back of the WD My Cloud, that is for connecting external USB drives for Sharepoint backup and expanding user accessible storage.

I see.  I was using the usb and that is where I went wrong.  Thank you so much.
