To Hell with their Cloud. Build your own Today!

MyCloudNAS Service in Use




The NAS will kick out a doc with all of the addresses for the services you asked for. Here is my list. From these URLs you can do quite a bit more than just see your files. As you can see, there are four direct URLs, but you really only need to remember one -




From you just enter your server's name, what you designated during the setup. The software takes over from there and you can do just about anything you want.




The software then presents you with four options - the admin panel of your NAS, a multimedia player for playing your movies, music and photos over the web, the file manager and finally a web server if you built one.




Here we see the file manager and a folder I placed on the NAS to show the software's abilities.




Next up is the media player. On this screen we see the artist's name. I'm feeling a bit like rocking you, so let me click on the folder.




Within 5 seconds the first song starts playing in my web browser. You can also use your internet enabled phone, tablet or just about any other device as long as you can get to a URL.
