NAS OS 4.x - Remote Access

Your Seagate Business NAS OS 4.x device supports multiple methods for accessing it remotely. This article describes these options and references the NAS OS 4.x User Manual on how to set them up.
Warning: For Remote Access it’s advised to give the NAS device a Static local IP address. See this chapter in the User Manual for how to configure a Static IPv4 IP address in NAS OS 4.x.

1. Seagate MyNAS


MyNAS allows you to access the device remotely by a name instead of an IP address.
For supplemental information please visit the NAS OS 4 User Manual.


To enable this remote function:

  • Log in to the Dashboard as an Administrator

  • Click the Device Manager icon

  • Under “Customize” on the left, click “Network”

  • Under Network, go to the Remote Access tab

  • Find Seagate MyNAS in the drop down menu

  • Choose a unique MyNAS name


Once MyNAS is enabled and you are in a remote location with internet access:

  • The NAS’ dashboard will load and let you log in

  • From there you can manage the NAS device remotely

  • For example, adding a user or starting a backup

  • You can download or upload files using the File browser

Instead of MyNAS you can choose DynDNS from the drop-down menu, then fill out the required Hostname, Username, and Password. For more information visit

MyNAS is a very handy function for remote Dashboard management and a quick overview of the device’s status, however there are other remote functions that serve better for remote file transfers from personal computers.
