In this blog, I will provide you the method to access buffalo LinkStation from the internet. Apart from this, I will share its benefits.
Buffalo LinkStation is the network device that is used to share the data. It has one unique feature that is known as WebAccess. This feature allows the user to access data remotely. It even helps the user to share the information over the internet. One of the best parts of this feature is that it makes data secure and allows the user to access their data from the web or system through the web.
We can see that to use the internet at a business or home user use any firewall, separate computer or any other device. So this will prevent the system from unauthorized users to access the data. This will prevent your data from any loss and corruption.
The following are some of the advantages of using buffalo LinkStation through the internet
One of the most important things to remember while accessing the LinkStation through the web is that only a limited number of the system should be connected to the internet through Linkstation to the firewall. This can be done by creating a virtual door for this service on the firewall.
To do this the “door” should have a specific port number. The device should consist of a firewall, wireless ISP that supplies the gateway has some specific instructions related to the virtual door and is known as port forwarding.
Whenever there is traffic on some specific port number then all the request of that port is forwarded to an internal internet protocol address. This allows the user to pass the WebAccess traffic through the firewall without knowing the LinkStation of the internet. Make sure that devices connected to the web access should have strong and secure passwords.
Step 1) Using the ethernet cable connects the LinkStation to the network. Now turn on the power.
Step 2) Open the web browser. Go to the address bar and enter the IP address of LinkStation. Change the settings.
(Note: If you don’t remember the IP address of the port then choose NAS navigator.)
Step 3) Press enter on “Advanced Settings” option. Now login to its default account using user name “Admin” and password “password”.
Step 4) Visit the page “file share”. From the right side of web access select option “widget”.
Step 5) Hit on the “Edit” button.
Step 6) Now a dialogue box will appear in which you can register on Buffalo LinkStation with your name. You can even login using another DNS provider. You can even choose the server to access the web from internal and external TCP ports. In some of the router, you can even configure the port with the help of universal play and plug feature. Once the port is configured then go on settings and then click on the “ok” button.
Step 7) Pop up messages will appear on the screen, hit enter on all that.
Step 8) Again go to the settings and enable the web access option.
Step 9) Once the Web Access is enabled then log out from the setting and close all the web tabs.
Hence Buffalo LinkStation is configured with the internet.
If you want to test your access than open BuffaloNAS.com. Enter your credentials. Now the screen will appear with the WebAccess interface of your LinkStation. If this does not happen then it means that either your IP is blocked or you have entered the wrong credentials.
