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:
Go to http://mynas.seagate.com/<name of your device>
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
There is also a Seagate MyNAS IOS and an Android app. These apps let you access your files remotely from a mobile device, offering the ability to download files to that mobile device and upload files from the mobile device to the NAS. The apps do not give you access to the Dashboard on a mobile device, however this is possible by using a mobile browser instead.
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 www.dyn.com
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.
