    So i know if you enable wan sharing you can access your time capsule's drive outside your network by going to finder > GO > and typing in afp://youripadress

    But what if i am on a PC using windows which does not have afp, is there any way to access it then?

    Apple Time capsule access network drive

    Hi

    I'm having the same problem.I have a time capsule attached to my pc. It is acting as a wireless router as well. I can access the drive from my privte network, but when it comes to access the drive from another network (eg. work or university) hoplesscase. I can't find a solution to such problem.Maybe some one here can post an easy and detailed tutorial on how to go about this problem.

    It seems like there is no way unless you get on another Mac where ever you are. I have searched all over but can't find anything. :(

    Apple time capsule

    Me too I have searched all the net. I'm even getting some advised from experts in the field of networking. The only solution is to create an FTP server but I don't know how to do that either.:(
