1. Remote Access


1.1 Accessing your ASUSTOR NAS using the Internet

ASUSTOR provides users with quick and convenient solutions that allow them to use their NAS through the internet and remotely access their files, creating an exclusive private cloud. You can use any of the following methods to set up remote access to your NAS.

  1. Directly connecting your NAS to the internet
    If you have a static IP address, you can choose to directly connect your NAS to the Internet, without having to go through any routers or firewalls. Please note that this method will directly expose your NAS to the Internet and you may be more likely to experience malicious attacks.
  2. Connect your NAS to your router and then use ASUSTOR EZ-Connect
    ADM’s built-in EZ-Connect function can help you to complete the necessary router configurations for setting up remote access to your NAS. This guide will further explain how to set up remote access to your NAS using EZ-Connect.
  3. Connect your NAS to the internet and manually configure your connection
    If you are using an incompatible router and cannot use EZ-Connect to complete your remote connection settings. For more information please see: NAS 224: Remote Access - Manual Connect
