|The Win 10 desktop is at a different location from the NAS. I want to access the NAS over the Internet.|
The Web Access app uses Buffalo's DDNS service. I have SSL turned on (it is built into the Web Access settings on the NAS) and the router forwards a port to the NAS. It works fine using a secure https:// connection from any web browser. It also works fine using Buffalo's iPhone app. The problem is that I want to treat the NAS like a mapped drive on the Win 10 desktop, so that I can have easy read/write access, drag and drop capabilities, etc. In order to do that, I need to get Web Access working on Windows. Every time I try to connect, the Web Access program says it cannot communicate with the NAS.
I don't think the dynamic IP at the NAS location is the problem, b/c again the browser and iPhone never fail to connect, and the handshaking takes place at Buffalo's end before the connection is established.
