Remotely Access HP MediaSmart Server (1st Generation)
TZO Dynamic DNS services are bundled along with each HP MediaSmart server. When you purchase an HP MediaSmart server, you can choose from a free year of the TZO Dynamic DNS Services using a branded HP 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
This tutorial assumes you have gone through the initial install of the HP MediaSmart server and are ready to finalize the configuration of the server. You should have already proceeded with the HP MediaSmart software update and added your users.
1Using the Wizard in the Home Server Console
When you first complete the setup, the HP MediaSmart administration console loads as shown in the screenshot below. This screenshot shows the initial Suggested Configuration Steps dialog box that pops up the first time you run the Windows Home Server Console. In order to setup the TZO DDNS and enable remote access, you need to click on the CONFIGURE button in the bottom right of the screen as shown below.
2Enable Website Connectivity
Once you click on the CONFIGURE under REMOTE ACCESS, you will see the screenshot shown below. In order to share photos with friends and family, you should TURN ON WEB SITE CONNECTIVITY . Click the TURN ON button under WEB SITE CONNECTIVITY to enable external website connectivity.
3Configuring your router for Remote Access
Next, you should configure the router. Under the ROUTER section, click SETUP to configure the automatic configuration of your router and you will see the screenshot shown below.
4Selecting your domain name
Once you configure the router, it’s time to setup the DOMAIN NAME for remote access use. When setting up the domain name, you have 2 options when choosing to use TZO. Select the option that’s best for you
Domain Name Option 1) Use TZO.COM Dynamic DNS FREE DDNS service for 1 year under a Branded HP domain name such as Yourname.HPShare.net. There are several HP branded domain names to choose from. This is the default setting and is free for 1 year.
5Selecting the TZO Custom Domain Service
Domain Name Option 2) Use TZO.COM Dynamic DNS with a CUSTOM DOMAIN NAME service for 1 year. Run your HP MediaSmart server 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 HP MediaSmart server.
6Select the TZO Personal Domain Name
This step shows how to use option 1, the free HP 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 transfer 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 being the domain name, registration and credit card details.
Once you select the HP Personal Domain Name option, you will see the screenshot below. Click NEXT to Continue
