3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I had little problems installing anddressing the device following the extremely poor instructions. So far they are sufficient. If it comes to the more detailed settings like e-mail notification, Web access, FTP, then the instructions are just non existent and the user is left alone. The program on board uses numerous deeply digging directory levels when left to do the uploading job. A lot easyer is it to use anf FTP program like Filezilla to upload many files. Exchanging data presently also just works via FTP, none of the fancy features seem to work. The only addressing feature is presently via a DNS service. It would be a great enhancement if the software could retrieve the actual IP address and upload that to a personal website. Then a permanent access with changing IP's would be available without using DNS servers.

1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I have not been able to "Enable Remote Access" in the Canvio Personal Cloud application SETTINGS on this device and cannot find any documentation on Toshiba's website about this. It also says "Internet Connection is not available" which is not the case. I could solve this if Toshiba would post some router settings that should be set, perhaps? My guess is it is in my router settings. I loaded the latest firmware into my Cisco/Linksys E3200 wifi router and also uninstalled/reinstalled the Toshiba Canvio application. No luck. I give this low marks because I cannot find a technical application note on this product and had some start up issues. I also uploaded the latest firmware to the Canvio drive. Still cannot enable remote access (in order to get the PIN for other devices to access it).
