How to access LS from the Internet ?
- if you really want to do this:
i assume you access your routers config page by
so there is some port used by your router...if it is Port 80 then you
cannot simply forward port 80 to your Linkstation because then you
would not be able to access your Routers config page anymore.
if it isn`t running on port 80 all you have to do is forwarding port
80 to your linkstations-ip (and make the linkstations ip static if
dhcp is used)
--- only with root-access ----
if it is running on port 80 and there is no chance in changing it to
another one you can do the following (i assume that your router isn`t
able to "map" one port to another, say from 81 to 80):
1) choose a port for the linkstations webinterface
2) on the router forward the port to your linkstations ip
3) edit /etc/thttpd.conf , change the portnumber to the chosen one
after a reboot it should work.

Take a look here for a list of common ports.
Now that your looking here, I'll make a statement.
http:// is the same as port 80
http://www.google.com is identical to
www.google.com:80 and http is the default service in a
Here lies the problem. You likely only have one IP
address and you can't have two web browsers at the
same address looking in from the outside.
Steps: Give LS a fixed IP address on your internal
network and lets say its 10.0.1.3. If using DHCP, you
can give devices a very long lease time so for all
intents and purposes it has a fixed IP address.
In your router you have the ability to port map.
So you map the public port (say 8000) to the private
IP address of 10.0.1.3 and the private port (80)
So, to access the http: service on a device with the
private IP address of 10.0.1.3 you type in a browser
<my public ip address>:8000 and your there. You
cannot do this from within your network.
This is an over simplification. Use public ports
above, I believe 1000.
It's not always that simple and straitforward. FTP is
PS: I'm lurking and thinking about buying a LS.
