Topic Changed to "Keeping the Two 8TB Clouds"

Yeah, and as I have to toggle cloud access every time my router IP gets changed by my ISP, in order to re-establish remote access, the scans keep getting restarted. I’ve given up trying to stop them now…

ps Glad you seem to be getting to know the Gen2…

Do you know why your IP address is changing? I’ve had my systems for almost 2 years. The
IP address has not changed. I setup my router to assign a fixed address to the My Cloud devices.


ISP DHCP server. Every time my router decides to reboot, the DHCP server gives it a new IP.

I could probably negotiate a fixed IP with my ISP, but I’m sure they’d charge me, and I haven’t bothered so far…

MyCloud currently unavailable remotely after a reboot 3 days ago. Must remember to toggle cloud access again…

ps. It’s not the local IP address of the MyCloud that’s changing, it’s the global IP address of the router.

well I’m guessing that the scans do complete at some time unless it gets stuck. Also the gen2 devices seem to have more power, I haven’t checked the specs, but just the fact that I can get a 100MB/s writes from a flash drive over a gigabit ethernet to the cloud is a substantial increase in speed over the old gen1 45MB/s writes.

25% faster CPU (800 vs 650 MHz)
twice the RAM (512M vs 256M)

you can always tell a pc-android guy by the specs :stuck_out_tongue:

A mac guy just says “hey it works!” and “it is working faster and better”

Engineer: I want to know how much faster. And why.

Just put a new gigabit card in my ‘new’ (c2011) Win10 desktop PC (oddly, it came with a 100Mb network port on the m/b, unlike the gigabit port in the little (c2009) Viewsonic VPC100 Atom all-in-one I have as a bedroom media player, which is a much lower spec device).

I’m reasonably happy with that; it’s about twice as fast as the old XP desktop.

yup, not too shabby at all for a cheap NAS. I assume that must be the gen 1 cloud.
