Hi, I need some advice.
I’ve got My Cloud EX2 Ultra (OS: 2.30.193). I want MyCloud to be data warehouse. I want to send data from remote virtual machine (in automatic way) so connection between MyCloud and virtual machine has to be constant. Virtual machine has diffrent Internet network than MyCloud (it is far away from MyCloud device). The task is to make backups and size of these backups is large (several TB).
Here is my first question: What is the best way to connect between virtual machine (remote access) and MyCloud in order to send (and magazine) a large amount of data in automatic way (without action of user)? Is it FTP?
I know the access to MyCloud can be realized by Internet account or desktop application, but this is not the way I’m looking for.
MyCloud can work as a FTP server. And this is the way I’ve tried to solve the problem. But it still doesn’t work. Here is description of what I did (assuming that external IP is constant):
I set MyCloud IP as a static IP:
I turned on FTP access with this settings:
Maximum users: 10
Idle Time: 10
Flow Control: Unlimited
Passive Mode: Default
Enable Report external IP n PASV mode (External IP: 80.49.132.XX)
Implicit TLS: no
Explicit TLS: no
I set Port Forwarding:
Select the default service scan
FTP TCP 21 21
MyCloud is connected to NEATGEAR router. So I set port forwarding from router to MyCloud (with Service Type as TCP):
External Starting Port: 20
External Ending Port: 21
Internal Starting Point: 20
Internal Ending Point: 21
Internal IP address: 10.0.0.A
I check if my FTP port (21) is open (using https://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/).
And it says the port is closed (even if antivirus and windows firewall are turned off).
My system connection looks like this:
So is the port (21) closed beacause of double NAT?
Should I enable bridge mode between NEATGEAR and modem? If yes, the port after this will be opened?
Or maybe there is another, better solution to solve this?
