    That connected disk, is that an USB- or a network disk? Can you access it from your LAN? How?

    Can you connect by ftp on your LAN? If you can't on your LAN, you won't be able on WAN.

    Yes I can. I manage the hd only when I connect to Wi-Fi at home.

    OK. FTP is an old protocol, which predates the use of NAT routers, and the portforwards are a bit hard.
    FTP uses at least 2 ports, one command port (usually 21), and a data port, which on most servers at random is chosen from the range 1024...65535. As it's not convenient to forward them all, you'll have to look at the FTP server settings to see if you can limit the dataport range. A range of 10 or 20 is enough for single person usage, and you'll have to forward that whole range.

    Could you try using sftp instead of ftp?
    IIRC you need to enable ssh in remote management.

    Hi all,

    I think it's difficult to reach because router isn't assigned IP to usb port.
