  1. Hi, could anyone please help me set up my Netgear ReadyNAS 2120.
    I could not get RAIDar to find it so I connected to my ReadyNAS via browser
    192.168.1.25/admin

    and set it up but haven't managed to setup ftp or http access so I can access it from anywhere connected to the internet. Also because RAIDar could not seem to find the ReadyNAS I have no idea how to upload items to it?

    The only access I have to it is 192.168.1.25/shares

    Regards

    is this the RAIDar you speak of? http://www.readynas.com/?cat=41
    The layout looks like
    Code:
    modem-->router-->ReadyNAS
             |
             +---- other systems
    First, you should be ableto access the ReadyNAS from any systems on your router.
    This would then allow various root directories to be created and have permissions set.
    Once you can access and control the ReadyNAS from local systems,
    allowing Internet access to it is done by using Port Forwarding of ports 20+21 to the 192.168.1.25 address. This is a big time privacy & security exposure and only leaves the login user & password as protection. Certainly you would not use the admin/password and need to setup other users.

    Thanks for the help

    Yes, that is the RAIDar I speak of.

    They both should say could not,

    The layout is
    Code:
     
    modem-->router
                     | ReadyNAS (connected to a Ethernet port)
                     |
                     +---- other systems 
    
    I am using Windows 7.
    I can access the ReadyNAS on any system on the network via 192.168.1.25/shares in a browser but not any other way, when I go to network and click on the ReadyNAS is goes to 192.168.1.25/admin control panel

    I already have created other users and they can access it but the interface is same as the 192.168.1.2.5/shares interface where I can not add/upload or rearrange files?

    I need a way to add it my PC/Laptop so I can access it like I would a normal hard drive, I have tried "Map a Network Drive" but it does not seem to be able to connect to it.

    I will look further in to Remote Access link
