    I recently purchased a couple of iPads for me and the wife, along with a new Time Capsule and AppleTV (yeah, it was a bit of a splurge), and I've got a question that I hope y'all can help me with. I'd like to access the Time Capsule via WAN with the iPads whenever we're out and about, but I can't seem to find any way to do it. I've tried FileExplorer, but with no luck. I'm using CloudOn to access my Dropbox and Google Drive stuff, but unfortunately there isn't an option to access a Time Capsule or other NAS remotely. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Figured it out. FileBrowser works beautifully!

    I downloaded File Browser but could not connect to my Time Capsule remotely, I wonder if I should have preceded my WAN address with http: did/do you have to do that? What port number did you use? Are you using SMB or afp?
