so I am desperate,confused and very angry right now.
I have got a WD MyCloud EX4100 device which has all my files I need for university on it. I do not want to use any web based Cloud-Service like OneDrive, Dropbox or the WD WebAccess to access my files.
So I thought since my NAS sits behind my router I can easily access it over the internet by typing “\routerpublicIP\mySharedFolder”. Haha nope. I even tried putting the local IP which is 192.168.178.27 for the NAS in between. Didn’t help either, what a surprise.
Then I tried to connect via VPN. So I got my client running, connection established, used “\192.168.178.27\mySharedFolder” and didn’t work. What do I have to type in?
I forwarded every imaginable port from my router to the NAS including 21, 22, 80, 443 and 445.
I even tried giving the NAS its own public IP (see how desperate I am?!) which didn’t work either.
So what [[EDITED - PROFANITY]] am I doing wrong? Is there something wrong with the way I type in the network share to Windows 10? What is the exact configuration I have to run when I have the following scenario:
I am sitting in the lecture hall of my university connected to their WiFi. I want to connect a network drive in Windows 10 which is my NAS which is sitting behind my router (with DDNS) at home?
I really want to have the NAS connected as a network drive to Windows and not transfer files via ftp or scp every time.
Thank you for helping I appreciate it. Feel free to ask and answer professionally because I am not a newbie (though I feel like one right now).
