Hi, I would like to setup my Lacie Classic HD to be able to access it from outside the LAN. at the moment it uses DHCP on the wireless network ( to which it's connected with a usb wifi adapter) and i'm guessing i have a dynamic IP from my ISP. i downloaded an app from the lacie site that shows me almost all of the network specs there are for the drive. in those specs i see: Model , MAC Address, interface config, ip address (192.168.1.108 won't change a lot since it's constantly on), subnet mask, gateway address, but then also DNS Address and WINS (but there is no WINS address). I remember DNS being a good thing ... i setup my a security cam once and DNS made it possible to watch from everywhere with dynamic IP, however there was a paid service for the DNS part of it. (I'm a noob to DNS) when i acces the disk over LAN it uses SMB. I have a linksys E1000 router. is it possible to access from outside the LAN? if so, what are the necessary steps to take? I don't mind the NAS being on all the time but i can't have a computer on all the time. i've been reading about ssh, ftp, VPN, mapping the drive etc... i don't care too much about security, i'd rather have user friendly then oversecure. i just want the disk to show up on my desktop like it does now when i'm at home, but i want this everywhere (certainly at college). Thnx for the help! EDIT: when i entered the ip address in Opera i got this: i thought this might be interresting, no?
