Based on the following article, I purchased a 1 TB LaCie ethernet disk to use as a NAS (network attached storage): http://www.macworld.com/article/136632/2008/11/networkattachedstorage.html I have a NAS set up and I can access it within my LAN via FTP and AFP. Can I FTP to and from this drive when I am on the road via the Internet? I have tried using my IP address of the drive and my FTP programs cannot find it when I am not connected to my LAN. I set the firewall of the DSL modem/router to allow FTP traffic (forwarding ports 20 & 21) and still no luck. Do I need to use the IP address of my DSL modem which is very different from the IP address of the network drive? There are setting on the modem that I do not understand, such as public vs. private LAN. Right now, I have only a private LAN. Suggestions?
