Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hello I'm trying to connect a Buffalo terastation(storage media) through the internet so that they can store files on it. I have no problem accessing it from anywhere except through a server that passes through a DFL-200 firewall. Now since this product is end of life i cannot get any support from dlink on this issue. I gave the terastation a static ip ex: 222.222.222.222 (public address)and the server which is at another site is behind that DFL-200 firewall with an ip ex: 192.168.1.10 and gateway of: 192.168.1.1 From home i was able to click on start, run then type the address like so to map it: ex: run:\\222.222.222.222 and was able to connect to it and map the drive.I did this at 4 other places to test and make sure i had no problem accessing it. Now when i try from that server i cannot connect to it in order to map the drive so they can back up their server to it. I tried reading the manuals that i found but am still not getting anywhere. I'm not sure if i have to configure a policy and then port forwarding or even if i'm doing this right. Can anyone please help me to figure out what needs to be done in order to allow that server to reach the terastation so i can map a drive to it and finally be able to backup their stuff on it. This is what the setup looks like: Terastation----vianet(isp)-----persona(isp)------DFL-200(firewall)---server Terastation ip:222.222.222.222 DFL-200: gateway:192.168.1.1 server ip: 192.168.1.100

    Is the DFL-200 set up in NAT or No-NAT mode?

I'm guessing that you have a routing issue caused by the address of your tera server not being on the right subnet. Typically, addresses like 192.168.1.10 will have a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 which will cause problems when you have a statically assigned ip of 222.222.222.222. You would be best off to assign your teraserver within the 192.168.1.x range, but outside of the range dynamically assigned by the router. Typically, you can control which addresses are assigned by the router (say 192.168.1.50 - 192.168.1.100). Just make sure that the tera server is outside this range so that it does not duplicate another device. Make it something like 192.168.1.11 or 192.168.1.222.

Hope this helps - flub

Mac OSx 10.8 cannot search BUFFALO TS-8VH24TL/R6 24TB


Specs only indicate Windows. No iOS. Might be cause of the RAID configuration / software.

Though it does support HTTP and FTP protocols.

Tip

Buffalo Terastation


No need to enter Username and password in vista everytime you boot the computer

you can blame the security setting in windows vista -these decide the request /response authentication protocol used for the network login .The default setting for win vista NTLMv2 (NT lan manager version 2)
but the terastation still uses an earlier version of it .
The setting can be changed as follows :click tge start button ,enter "secpol.msc " in the search field and double click the progrma found .confirm the start of the console with "continue' .Finally ,double- click and open "security settings".then expand the "local policies" "security option" folder .In the following list select "Network security :lan manager authentication level".A dialog box open on double clicking it .At this point,switch to the "local security setting" tabthe default set option "send NTLMv2 respone only " to "send LM & NTLM -use NTLMv2 session security.if negotiated " .save the changes with "ok" and teraStation will start working again

How to install antivirus in Buffalo Tsx40tlr5 Terastation


You have antivirus installed on this NAS system? You will want to look up the product manual for that product and see if it allows antivirus programs to be installed. Some NAS stations come with built in anti virus. You could even contact their support to get a list of "SUPPORTED" anti virus software. At which point, you will have to telnet or console into the data storage system and install the software. You could probably install the files through a CIFS connection but it would be best to contact Buffalo support as they can walk you through the proper steps.

I have a Buffalo WBMR-G54 ADSL Router. The local IP address of the router is 192.168.1.1. My Medion desktop computer connects connects to my Buffalo router using an Ethernet cable. I use the wireless...


> Zone Alarm free firewall and Avast antivirus have been installed on both computers

Your router is already acting as a "firewall" to block "unsolicited" traffic from reaching the computers on your LAN. So, unless you use Zone Alarm to block "outgoing" connections
(such as a computer-virus would try to make when "calling-home", there's little benefit
to using the Zone Alarm software.

> If I use Internet explorer to connect to http://myname.dyndns.org, Internet Explorer does connect successfully to the network. However, it invites me to enter the username and password for my Buffalo WBMR-G54 router - not for the storage drive.

While you are "forwarding" TCP port 21, you are not "forwarding" TCP port 80 (as used by the 'http://' protocol). So, when you connect from the Internet to your "public" IP-address, it is the router that responds, rather than one of your computers inside your LAN.

IMHO, it is "bad" that your router's web-interface is "exposed" to attacks from the Internet.
Either "forward" TCP port 80, or configure the router to use a _different_ port number for "remote management".

> If I enter the Router user name and password, that allows me to access the Router menus via the Internet, which confirms that my account at DynDns has translated the IP address successfully.

Correct. Hopefully, you're the only one who knows the correct username/password, and there is nobody that is doing "brute-force" attacks on your router, trying to login to "hijack" your router.

> if I use Internet Explorer or FileZilla to access ftp://myname.dyndns.org, I cannot connect to the router

Correct. The 'ftp://' protocol uses TCP port 21, which the router is "forwarding" to one of the computers on your LAN.

> or the storage drive - so I cannot access any of my files remotely.
> FileZilla reports -Status: Resolving address of bob1944.dyndns.org
> Status: Connecting to 78.144.xxx.xxx:21...
> Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message

So far, so good.

Is FileZilla expecting a "specific" content in that "welcome" message, or will "any" response be "close-enough" ?

On a computer on the Internet, open a command-line prompt:

Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Enter FTP bob1944.dyndns.org
Press Enter
Do you get a "connecting" message?
Do you get a "connected" message?
Do you see the "welcome" message?

Note that the FTP protocol usually uses _two_ ports for File Transfer:

* port 21 for "control" (sending/receiving commands/responses)
* a "random" port for "data" transfers (including directory-listings)

It's this "random" port that your router is not forwarding.

However, some FTP-clients (probably including FileZilla) and some FTP-servers
support "passive" mode, where both the "control" and the "data" connections "share" port 21.

So, configure FileZilla to use "passive" mode, and _hope_ that your FTP-server supports "passive" mode.

Unable to map server to storage media over the internet for back


Virtual Private Network (VPN) endpoint and pass-through support. Additional firewall features include custom and policy-based filtering options. These options have to be configured properly.
Check your configuration level and access policy.
If its a public server you have to place it in DMZ.
Check IP settings of the server. U may require a VPN tunnel
