Maxtor Shared storage II remote access

  Jezza90 13:03 07 Jan 2008


Does anyone know if it is possible to access my home Maxtor shared storage II NAS hard drive whilst away from home without leaving my home pc ON? Is there a router I can buy that will help me do this as I don't want to have to leave my PC on just on the off chance I need to access a filed stored on the maxtor.

It will, apparently, be possible after March 2008:

Many thanks Mark. This is excellent news and I look forward to the release. Its great to see a company releasing software updates that allow an existing product to do new things instead of just releasing new products and charging consumers more money.

It is also great that postings on this web site don't just die of because they are more than a couple of days old as I have seen on so many other sites. Big thumbs up and thanks again for the info.
