Running infuse 3.3.1 on iPad. From everything I’ve read there is the possibility to steam via FTP. However all I see is the option to connect locally (LAN) and the transfer files to the iPad via another app like cyber duck. I was under the impression I could access my files remotely (WAN) through FTP protocol using my exterior IP address but i don’t see how. I’ve tested by connecting to a neighbours wifi but it only sees their local media sources as well. What am I missing?
i’ve finally found out how to connect remotely (buried in your blog) by selecting “other” as source of media. However, I cannot connect it just hangs.
Here is what I’ve done:
Select source as “other”
Share name: (i entered the name of my NAS on my network)
Protocol : FTP
address: here i entered my IP address (my WAN not LAN)
Port: left to default 21
username and password (entered my credentials for my NAS drive)
I walked over to my neighbours’ and signed into his WIFI so that I was accessing remotely not locally.
I hit enter and it hangs -never connects.
I am trying to allow the other users of my NAS drive access to it remotely through Infuse (that’s right I’m selling them on buying your app to connect to my drive :))
I have all my media on a WD MyCloud and there is a setting to allow FTP (Selected “ON”) and it defaults to port 21. I even checked my router (D-Link DIR-632) and port forwarded port 21 to the local IP of the NAS and no love. What am I missing?
