Hi, I've just got myself a readynas duo and I'm wanting to access it from where ever I am with an internet connection.
I've done a little research and found out that the best way to do this is ftp.
I am a bit of a hobby computer enthusiast, I've built about 4 computers from scratch and rebuilt at least 10, I'm no professional but I do have a little more knowledge than the average Joe Blogs.
When it comes to networks and networking let's just say my knowledge level is a little lower than the average Joe Blogs =D
Can anyone help me with this or guide me in the right direction?
I have read up a bit and know I need an ftp client but there are so many out there and I don't know which one to chose.
Thank you in advance.

HI again, well how did I go?
quite good up to a point but I can't share anything connected via wlan via ftp only what I connect via usb on the side of the gateway!
This is the conclusion I have come to, is there anyone who knows better?
if not can anyone recommend another gateway I can get that can do what I want cause I am itching to throw this one in with the rest of the compost hahahahaha....
Thanks again

Sounds like your looking for the server side to Filezilla, Hard to set up, but on youtube there are a couple of good videos to help you. I set one up to be a music ftp server and it works great. Just make sure you take your time and watch the video's close.
Good luck!!
