So I tried to access my NAS remotely today to be told the device could not connect. When I got home, I tried from the host machine and still found the NAS inaccesible. I tried to access via the IP address (a static address which according to the router has not changed) and it still won’t connect.
I can still access the files on the NAS via mapped drives or other means, but I cannot connect to any web services or the dashboard. So even if the thing needs its firmware updating, I can’t access the screen to do it.
Can I assume that WD have royally ballsed up the device once again? This is why I refused to upgrade the firmware for ages. When I finally relent, what a surprise, the whole thing falls over.
It really is unacceptable. Apologies if there is a solution, but I couldn’t find it.
