Forbidden Access

Hi All:

I am a recent Mybook owner. LAN setup was a breeze and working fine. Remote setup is not working but I finally realized WD2GO doesn’t work for my setup. So I am hoping I can access my drive directly. I have the mybook IP setup and the router ports are open. I know I can access the mybook via Web but I am getting the following error:


You don’t have permission to access /UI on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request

Is there any way around this since it is the only way I can access my drive remotely.



You cannot log into the MBL’s web GUI from a remote network.   The built-in security policy prohibits that.

Thanks Tony:

I was hoping to access my drive from my work computer. Oh well. It’s still a nice drive for my LAN.


Well, you probably can access it from work via WD 2go.   But to enable WD 2go, you’ll need to access the UI – from your home network.

Once it’s enabled, you’ll be good to go.

I happen to be 1500 miles away from mine right now and it’s chugging right along with me.
