Remote access mybook live

Post by josbol0426 » Tue Aug 07, 2012 10:46 am

Hi everyone

Im having some problems when I try to remotely access (online, not over LAN) twonkyserver on my WD Mybook Live and I would be forever grateful if someone could help me out.

I have followed a guide (http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/forum/t-459592) to update twonky to 7.0.8 on my Mybook Live, and last night I updated it to the latest 7.0.9 (7.0.9-Special//twonky-powerpc-glibc-2.2.5-special-7.0.9.zip).

I have changed the following in /var/twonky/TwonkyServer/twonkyserver.ini:

# enable https remote connections
enabletls=0
# dynamic dns prefix for remote access, including http://
dyndns=http://(mydomain.net)
# access to web config pages, 0 for denied, 1 for local only, 2 for open
enableweb=2
# http server port for remote access
httpremoteport=9100
# enable remote access
remoteaccess=1

The port is forwarded in my router and when I goto my domain in my browser it asks for the login/password that I have set up in twonky (via the webinterface on port 9000).

Here is a screenshot of what Im seeing after I have logged in: http://i48.tinypic.com/ydpcj.png

I Have tried with both Google Chrome and IE9.

What could be the problem? I sent an email to Twonky Support but apparently they don't offer support for NAS devices.

1. There are some suggestions here:
http://www.twonkyforum.com/viewtopic.ph ... 646#p32846

Although this was created for TwonkyManager, some of it applies.

2. We're in the process of improving remote access for TwonkyServer. I'm not sure exactly which release this will end up in (maybe 7.1.2 or 7.2). Keep your eyes open for either.

There really wasn't anything there that I had already tried. But the problem is already solved, atleast as good as it could get. phibertron provided me with a workaround in another thread at http://www.twonkyforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10936.

But thanks anyway, hope to see a solution in upcoming versions.

I also have this problem.
Remote Web Admin Access still possible even when set to disabled on the Router Access GUI page.

Any help appreciated, thank you.
