Hi there, first youll need to activate FTP on the MBW:

Open your internet browser and access the storage manager by typing the IP of your MBW>

Log in> ADV Mode> Network> Services> Enable FTP> Specify the port you want (Make sure the port you set is open on the router).

To test if it works then try a local FTP access first:

ftp://admin@Private IPaddress of your MBW on your router

If it works then you can proceed to try the remote connection this way:

ftp://admin@Public (WAN) IP adress of your MBW

Remember that the public connection will only work if your ISP allows it.
