Remotely Access your Iomega StorCenter
When you purchase or upgrade an Iomega StorCenter device, you can choose from a free year of the TZO Dynamic DNS Services using a branded Iomega domain name, or you can select to use the TZO Custom Dynamic DNS service and use your own custom domain name such as YourName.com. When you select the free 1-year option, you also get a free 5-year SSL Certificate from TZO and Comodo.
Initial Requirements: Iomega StorCenter with EMC Lifeline v2.0 or higher.
It's also important that you have gone through the initial install of the StorCenter device and are ready to enable remote access on the device.
To ensure reliability of remote access it's suggested that you set a static IP on the Iomega StorCenter before enabling remote access. Be sure to follow the instructions in the tutorial titled "Setting a Static LAN IP on your Iomega StorCenter" before you begin. For more information on the Iomega StorCenter line of NAS products, please see the Iomega Website
To enable remote access, you must log in to your Iomega StorCenter device. In this case, we used our browser and connected to the Static LAN IP that we set on the StorCenter device at 192.168.1.200.
Once you enter this IP address into your browser, you will be presented with the StorCenter log in as shown in the screenshot below. Log in with the admin username and the admin password you set on the device and click the Log In button.
2Enabling Remote Access
Once you click on the log in button, you will be logged into the device and the Iomega StorCenter home page will be showing. Click on the Settings tab, and you will see the screenshot shown below. Click on the Remote Access link as shown in the bottom right of the screenshot below.
3Configure Remote Access
Next, you should click Configure Remote Access as shown in the screenshot below.
4Selecting your Remote Access Service Level
Now you can select your domain name options for remote access. When setting up the domain name, you have two options when choosing to use TZO. Select the option that’s best for you.
Domain Name Option 1 - Basic TZO Service - Use TZO.COM Dynamic DNS FREE DDNS service for one year under a Branded Iomega domain name such as Yourname.MyIomega.com and others. This is the default setting and is free for one year. This also comes with a free 5-year SSL certificate powered by Comodo.
Domain Name Option 2- Premium TZO Service - Use TZO.COM Dynamic DNS with a Custom Domain Name service for one year. Run your Iomega StorCenter with you own Personal Domain name! This option allows you to register your own Custom Domain Name, such as TheSmithFamily.net, Your-Own-Company.com, etc. This service is a paid service for a nominal fee, yet allows a highly customized domain name for your Iomega StorCenter device.
5Selecting the Basic TZO Service
Once you select the TZO Basic service, you are presented with your Domain Name option, you will see the screenshot below. Enter your choice for a domain name (do not enter the www) and your email address and click apply.
6TZO Service Levels
Please Note: This step shows how to use option 1, the free Personal Domain Name by TZO.COM. If you choose option 2 and wish to use your own custom domain name, TZO.COM can register a domain name for you, or you can point the name servers of a domain name you already own to TZO. The setup process is nearly identical and this tutorial can be used as a guide for option 2. The main difference is the domain name, registration and credit card details
7Creating the Domain Name and SSL Certificate
The Iomega StorCenter device will now attempt to reserve your domain name if it is not already taken. This may take a few minutes to set up the domain name, obtain your SSL Certificate with TZO and Comodo and apply the settings locally. Please be patient.
8Restarting the StorCenter
You are now asked to click Apply to restart the Iomega StorCenter Device. This may take a few minutes to complete and you will soon be launched back to the log in screen.
9Checking the Remote Access Status
You should now log back into the Iomega StorCenter and navigate to Settings > Remote Access. Once you get back into the remote access section, you'll see your domain name selection, expiration date, email, WAN IP and LAN IP.
In order to test that the remote access is set up properly, click the Test Connection link. Clicking this link will test that your Iomega StorCenter device is available over the Internet using TZO remote servers.
