I am very interested in making a personal cloud but have some questions about the connectivity of the My Cloud device:
1- Can the device be reached remotely through a WAN that has Carrier Grade NAT? I know normal hosting is not possible in that kind of network and trust me I tried with my experience in setting up dedicated gaming servers. There is some hope because even in that kind of environment I can still remotely control my PC with Teamviewer for example, not sure how they pulled it off though… Middleware maybe?
2- From my understanding you cannot perform automatic backups from remote locations by default, but can I still do it by using third party software? This is assuming I can reach My Cloud remotely.
My end goal is to make automatic backups of select source folders/partitions possible whether the PC/laptop/smart phone is connected to the same local network or is outside and has internet connectivity.
