Specs: Windows 7

I have external hard drive (WMU-6000FS) connecting to my Belkin N1 by ethernet , and i'm trying to remotely access to my hard drive by internet, i have account in DDNS and i got the host name and i put the DDNS account in the router and every thing is ok, i opened port from my router for the hard drive, but the problem is when i open the hard drive from internet by using the host name (DDNS) the setup page for the hard drive is opening and i was trying to open the Storage path (\\SWAT-TEAM\Storage) from the setup page but there is no option to do that , i need your help to access Map network or any thing allow my me to access the storage path (\\SWAT-TEAM\Storage) by internet.

You have to either setup a FTP Server or Virtual Private Network (VPN) to your Private Network. Does your router support VPN? (Most VPN Router are expensive) If not you may have to setup a VPN service on a computer inside your private network. If you have Windows Server it comes with VPN built in or you can download a multitude of Free VPN or FTP servers.

Remember you can not UNC path on a Linix or Unix device because this is a Windows thing. Most routers run Linix which I am guessing that is what your router is running. With some routers your can Firm Ware rot them with Open WRTs which will give you abilities that your router did not come with stock but any time you flash a firmware your run the risk of bricking the device. Probably might want to avoid this.
