nah, not PROPER network attached storage - CRAPPY DIY network attached storage
Seems I now own a pair of those mains networking things that don't need wifi
I also have a big external USB drive that I use for backups. It also has an ethernet socket so was fancying moving the backup drive out of the room where my pc is (in case of fires, or nasty burglary type people visiting) using one of the plug things and the ethernet socket
Can it work?
I've tried just plugging in and the drive obviously becomes attached to the router but not on "my network" as it hasn't a computer attached to setup the group etc.
Is there an easy way of setting it up - I think you can get XP to run off a pen-drive, so could I do similar with the disc
Could I use FTP somehow (as it'll have a fixed address on my local network)
or what ??
