I've recently purchased the Dlink Sharecentre 320 Nas Enclosure, after setting it up and putting all my files onto the system I would like to set this up so I can access the files over the Internet from anywhere instead of just my local network like at the moment.
I know that you have to setup both port Forwarding and ddns to do this however I have been unable to get this to work. I have setup a ddns account with dlink and called it mymedianas.dlinkddns.com and entered these details into my router under the ddns settings page.
I have an Edimax BR-6574N router and would like to configure the router to forward port 6000 to my Nas Drive IP Address (192.168.2.105) but as mentioned have been unable to do this, I have the following rule written in the port forwarding section of the router
Computer Name Private IP Type Port Range Comment
mymedianas 192.168.2.105 TCP+UDP 6000 NAS
I have also put the same settings into the NAT/Virtual Server Settings within the router. When attempting to use the link mymedianas.dlinkddns.com:6000 to access the nas I get the error message mymedianas.dlinkddns.com/ might be temporarily down or it may have moved to a new web address. If I use a port scanner it tells me the port is responding.
Can anyone tell me what I've done wrong and how I can fix it, I'm not very good with networking so any help would be greatly appreciated.
