I'm trying to access the sd/usb hdd from both the Internet (I'm able to access it via my network). I was messing around with the settings and this is what I've got so far. I believe I can access the router over the internet, but no files are showing up.
On the router:
Went to the router set-up page (192.168.0.1), clicked the Setup Tab (on the top), clicked the Storage tab (on the side). I had to Enable the Web File Access and Remote Access. I then created a user name and password (on the same page).
On an Android Phone
Downloaded app, put in my username and password in the settings tab. I then put in my ip based on what the router page above said: for example: http://18.104.22.168:8181/.
I tried entering this the way its listed, without the http and without the port (8181) since the mobile app has a box below the IP settings for the port number.
It seems that I can connect to the router using the IP address both via the internet (using the http:// address above via a pc) and via the app, but no files show up. Additionally, on the phone the app says to make sure devices are connected. I know the devices are connected b/c I can copy and paste files to them via windows explorer and they are listed in the router config pages.
Not sure what else to do...
