Title: Network Path of NAS via USB 3.0
Post by: krogers on August 07, 2014, 10:54:32 AM
I just got my DIR-880L and after a weird session of automatic reboots every 5 seconds I hit the factory reset and it's been great ever since.  The range and speed are top incredible, especially after my DIR-655 starting to fail me.

The issue: I also have an IP camera DCS-2330L and I'm attempting to record to the external hard drive hooked up to the router via USB 3.0.  The device is recognized and I can view the files by going to the shareport.local address in my browser.  However, the setup for the camera is requesting this in the form of a directory (\\computer\dir\dir...).

It seems simple enough, I just can't seem to make it happen. Any thoughts are appreciated!

Very helpful... those are the words I needed to use in my search!  I'll do a bit of reading but I think that will fix it.

Hardware: A1
Firmware: 1.01
Region: US

Worked great! Continuous recording until it hits 200GB on my hard drive

Network path ended up being \\192.168.0.1\Seagate_Backup_ZTZH1\2330 Camera

Odd name for the external, but whatever.  Thanks again for your help.

Side question, somewhat related -- Is it possible to access the SharePort drive remotely to modify files?  The only information I see regarding accessing the SharePort hard drive is for those devices connected to that network, not from an outside internet connection.


Edit: Found the solution.  To access the SharePort drive remotely, use the WAN port IP and the port 8181 for the SharePort drive. (ex: 25.182.239.108:8181) - login.  Presto
