Question about Fantom Titanium Hard Drive
I have a Fhanton Drive ( FDND500) and I am trying to configure it for network access. How do I know which IP address it has received from the DHCP server ?
Thanks for all your help.
Ipconfig /all does NOT retrieve the IP's of all the devices on a home or any other network. ipconfig /all only lists IP's assigned to the network interfaces running on the local computer.

This should be pretty straight forward. If this doesn't work for you, respond using the comment box below.
1. Bring up the Start Menu, click on the Run command (Don't see it, let me know using the comment box)
2. In the Run command line type "cmd" without the quotes.
3. In the Command Box Window that opens up,
type: "ipconfig /all" without the quotes.
4. This command retrieves all devices that are assigned addresses in your Home Area Network.
5 Write down the address assigned to your Phantom Drive.
6 Launch your web browser and after its finished loading your home page type in the address assigned to your external drive in the browser address bar and tap the enter key.
Now, you should be looking at the web interface for your external drive. It should be here that you can turn on or off features of your external drive to make it visible or invisible or only allow external PCs (on your Home Area Network) to access 'media file' such as mp3s or avi video and mpg video files. Or to also allow "Foreign" PCs, those that are outside your Home Area Network, that is to say: on the other side of your DSL or Cable Modem, such as your PC at work.
Once you turn on the features you want you should be able to access media on this drive from within programs such as Windows Media Player or Windows Media Center. WMC is the preferred program for doing this and when your drive is 'visible' WMC should 'discover' it automatically and tell you it has when you open that program.
To access your drive to play files from a Foreign PC, you need to contact your ISP and have them assist you in setting up your external foreign player to reach your files. Your ISP will setup a user name and password, and more.

HTTP Web-browser Access
Most HTML browsers can be used, though Internet Explorer 4.0 or Netscape 4.0 are recommended. IE 2.0 and Netscape 2.0 and their predecessors are not supported. The HTML interface can be used to access the LAN (or WAN) IP address or it can be used with FTP to upload and download files to and from the router.
To log on to the modem via HTML:
1 Bring up your favorite web browser.
2 Enter the Ethernet IP address of the router (10.0.0.1 or Speedstream) in the "Location" or "Address" area where you enter web page addresses.
3 Refer to "HTML Web Interface" on page 20.
HTML Web Interface
The HTML interface for the router first displays a page showing the current configuration of the router. The first page also provides links to the following functions:
Leads to a more detailed interface with several links that allow more in-depth configuration of functions available on the router. This interface provides the following links:
• Configuration Procedures
• Status and Statistics
• Command List
This is where the user manual ends. I would suggest clicking "Configuration Procedures" and find the section for configuring Network Address Translation (NAT).
In that section (if it exists), you'll want to provide the private IP address of the computer running the Telnet server and forward port 23 to this IP address.
If NAT capabilities do not exist, I would consider changing the router to Gateway mode (described in the user manual) and buying your own router to handle the NAT firewall.
