I do some support work for a guy with some learning difficulties/communication issues - he's reasonably tech savvy and has bought a NAS drive to store all his music and films etc. He can access them on his home wifi but wants to be able to get them over 3G or wifi hotspots when he's out and about.
I'm not great with networking etc but AFAICS we need to set up a static IP address, and open the ports on the router which the NAS drive will use. Having a bit of trouble doing this though - how do I know which ports the NAS drive will use? I think we've managed to set up the static IP address. It's this NAS:
Another complicating factor is he seems to have two routers - one for the BT infinity and a standard one. As you can tell I don't really know much about this stuff but I've been trying to read up/work it out.
There are also 'apps' that run on the NAS - he has a basic website already and he seems to want to run a Wordpress app on the NAS. I'm trying to help with this but I'm not sure what the point of doing it this way rather than just setting up Wordpress on a computer. He hasn't successfully managed to explain it to me but he seems quite set on it. Anyone know anything about this?
Any advice/help would be much appreciated. Or if anyone's got any links to good guides/explanations for numpties that would be great. I have tried to RTFM but can't seem to find the info I need. Cheers!
