I cannot get remote ftp access to my NMH405. I have remote access through https://ciscomediahub.com/ and can browse through my files this way, but I need to have remote access through ftp as well. I have set ut ftp access and it is working locally on my home network.
What is my ftp address?
Can someone please help me with this problem?

If it works in your home network that means that you've set it up correctly. What you need to do know is provide the FTP service to the outside world. This generally means that you want to open up your router on port 20 and 21 and point those to the mediahub's internal IP address. If that is done, you can connect to it from the outside world via ftp://<external_ip_address_whatever_that_may_be>

You will also need to know the outside IP address for your location. You can find it at http://www.whatismyip.com/. My internet Service Provider gives me a dynamic IP address so it will change every 24 hours. To fix this I've setup a dynamic host name for myself at http://www.dyndns.com/. You will also need to read the instruction manual for router for DDNS so you can tell it where to point to and keep the IP address current.
I hope this helps.

I hope it's ok that I re-open this tread ...
I can't access my FTP from remote PC ... It is working on my local PC ..
I have configured my NMH405 so FTP is enable ... And I have configured my router D-Link 655 with PortForwarding (TCP port 20 and 21) and (UDP port 20 and 21). Also I have put in my IP adress witch I have found in the Media Hub system (192.xxx.x.xxx)
As written before I can access my HUB from my Internet Explorer by typing FTP://192xxx.x.xxx locally, but when I try this from a remote PC there is no luck ...
What am i doing Wrong ... I have tried to read all i can from this Forum, but I can't get to work ... Please help .. i'm totally newbee )

I have tried using that format when I login with no luck :-( ....
I have now also tried to login using filezilla ... When I look at the information I get, it seems that I get a connection with my HUB (I says welcome to Media Hub and teels my username Queenyard) but after 5-10 sec i says that it can't establish connection to my hub's IP ...
What can be wrong here ... I looks like it is my HUB that refuses the connection .... HEEEELP
