thanks for reminding…
too bad WD is now doing harm to me by not allowing me to access my data from outside my LAN…
I cannot really understand why WD offers remote access only passing through their servers instead of offering the tools to do it on our own. With a VPN server it would be a breeze to access my EX2 as if I were on my network!
This is why I asked WD to offer a VPN add-in app, and that’s why - if WD does not speed up in doing so - I’ll keep trying to get a VPN server into my EX2.
I echo your sentiment. As of now, the ONLY way you can connect to EX2 from outside is to go via the WD relay servers. I strongly dislike that. At least WD should fix the broken FTP access which prevents people from accessing from outside using ftp at the moment. I would be keen to see OpenVPN work on this - or at least sftp to work.
BTW, I have examined the internal workings of the EX2 product (by poking around in the shell) and have a decent amount of understanding on how some of the things work. But I am OpenVPN-illiterate and would be happy to collaborate with someone who is OpenVPN-literate
