I have a question about connecting my apple mac to the My Book Live across the internet.


Playing mp3 songs after connecting via wd2go/java works fine.

Playing the same mp3 songs after connecting via finder’s connect to server command afp://admin@ext.ip.address/Public the playback is very choppy.

Both connection options end up showing the WD in the Finder’s Shared section on the mac.

I would prefer not to use wd2go/java in order to access my WD across the internet when away from my home network.

So is there a way to connect to the WD remotely that is the same as wd2go/java?

Check page 19 of the manual, also check if you have the latest MBL firmware version installed.
