    Setting up Personal Cloud, Security, and File Sharing
    After you have configured some basic features of your Iomega StorCenter, you may also want to set
    up an Iomega Personal Cloud , security, or file sharing.
    You can set up a Personal Cloud to allow invited users access to content on your Iomega StorCenter.
    This content can be in private Shares that are exclusive to the users who join the Personal Cloud,
    which adds an additional layer of security to your content. In addition, you may want to join other
    trusted devices to the Personal Cloud so that content on those devices can be made available to
    Personal Cloud users. For more information about Personal Clouds, refer to the Personal Cloud
    overview.
    You can enable security so you can secure Shares, create users, and allow selected features to be
    enabled. When you create users, you limit access to your Iomega StorCenter to those specific
    people, and when you secure Shares, you limit data access to those specific users. For more
    information on security, refer to What Is Security and Do I Need It?
    It is recommended to set up file sharing so that content can be added to your Iomega StorCenter,
    and that content can be made available in a wide variety of ways, including users of your Iomega
    StorCenter and content features such as Active Folders and media sharing. For more information,
    refer to the Sharing Overview.

    Sharing Files
    Sharing Overview
    Your Iomega StorCenter is set up for storing, retrieving, and accessing files among users, client
    computers, and applications.
    Note: File sharing is accomplished by creating Shares; setting up security, which includes creating
    users; setting up media services; and configuring Active Folders.
    Interfaces for Sharing
    Your Iomega device has three separate interfaces for file sharing:
    Iomega StorCenter Console
    You manage the creation of Shares through the Iomega StorCenter Console .
    Iomega Storage Manager
    Optionally installed on your local computer, the Iomega Storage Manager discovers any Iomega
    storage devices on your subnet, maps device Shares to computers, and provides local access to your
    content. It provides access to Shares through your computer's file management program, such as
    Windows Explorer or Mac Finder, allowing you to drag and drop many files between your computer
    and the Iomega device . Installing the Iomega Storage Manager is optional.
    Home Page
    Serves as a web-accessible interface to your Iomega device . The Home page content is configured
    using the Iomega StorCenter Console . The Home Page displays any public Shares. It can also display
    secured Shares accessible only to users who log in to the Iomega device . You can access the Home
    page of your Iomega device by entering the device name or IP address directly in your browser. If
    security is enabled and you are an administrator user, you can access the Iomega StorCenter Console
    from the Home page by clicking

    Shares
    What are Shares and How Do I Organize Content with Them?
    Shares are folders that contain all types of content, including documents, pictures, and music files.
    Shares can be public, meaning anyone accessing your Iomega EZ can access the content in the
    Shares. Shares can also be secured, which means access to content in them is limited to a select

    Sharing Content using Social Media: Overview
    If you have an account with social media services such as Facebook, Flickr, or YouTube, you can
    share content on your Iomega EZ Media & Backup Center with your friends and family using one or
    more of these social media sites. To share your content using social media sites, create Shares called
    Active Folders, and connect each Active Folder with a social media account. Refer to the help topic
    links below for more information on these procedures. When you add photos and movies to an Active
    Folder, those files are automatically uploaded to the social media site associated with that Active
    Folder. If you have photos or movies you want to share with others, this is a great way to make your
    content available to people who may not have access to your Iomega EZ .
    If you have configured a Personal Cloud on your Iomega EZ , you can grant Personal Cloud users
    access to Shares and Active Folders. This is useful if you want to allow users to add files to your
    social media sites. For example, if your Iomega EZ has a Flickr Active Folder, you can grant Personal
    Cloud users access to that Active Folder. In this manner, when photos are added to the Flickr Active
    Folder, either by you or by Personal Cloud users, those photos are uploaded automatically to your
    Flickr account.
    Note that an Active Folder can only be associated with one social media account. For example, if
    you want Active Folders for your Facebook and YouTube accounts, create two Active Folders, and
    assign one Active Folder to Facebook, and one to YouTube. Using this example, any photos you add
    to your Facebook Active Folder are automatically uploaded to your Facebook page, and any movies
    you add to your YouTube Active Folder are automatically uploaded to your YouTube page. Not only
    is this a fast and easy way to share content, but uploading content to your social media sites
    provides an additional backup of your content, as the content is stored both on your Iomega EZ and
    at your social media accounts.

    Managing Your Content
    You manage content on your Iomega EZ Media & Backup Center using the Content Viewer. The
    Content Viewer is a graphical file browser that lets you view and manage content in the Shares on
    your Iomega EZ .
    The Content Viewer is divided into two panes. The left pane lists the Shares on the Iomega EZ and
    allows you to delete or add a Share. If you select a Share that contains pictures, you can start a
    slideshow of the pictures in that Share. The right pane lists the files and folders in a Share and
    allows you to delete content or upload a file to the Share.
    To delete multiple files simultaneously, hold the Ctrl key on your keyboard and select each file, or
    drag your mouse over the filenames. Share content can be sorted, and you can switch between a list
    view and a thumbnail view of the files. When you are looking at content in a list view and you hover
    your mouse over an image, a thumbnail view of the image displays next to your mouse. If all the
    content cannot fit on one page, there are pagination controls that allow you to continue browsing
    the content.

    Transferring Content to and from Your Iomega EZ Media & Backup
    Center with Copy Jobs
    You can transfer content to and from your Iomega EZ using the Copy Jobs feature. Copy Jobs copies
    files from one storage device to another, either by a set schedule or immediately by the user. An
    example of a Copy Job scenario is if you keep pictures from your digital camera on a separate USB
    drive, but you also want to maintain a backup of these pictures on your Iomega EZ . Using Copy Jobs,
    you can create a task that copies your photos on the USB drive to a Share on your Iomega EZ , and
    you can set that task to a schedule so the images automatically copy at a specific time. This ensures
    that your photos are always safely backed up to your Iomega EZ in the event your USB device ever
    fails or is lost.
    Note: While a Copy Job copies all data from one NAS device to another, it does not copy permissions
    or access rights from one NAS device to another.
    All saved Copy Jobs display on the Copy Jobs page. From there, you can manually start and stop a
    Copy Job, view Copy Job information, modify a Copy Job, check its last run status, and, if
    applicable, view when the Copy Job is next scheduled to run.
    When defining a Copy Job, you can copy data from or to any of the following:


    Any NAS device automatically discovered on the same subnet as your Iomega EZ



    Any NAS device that you manually add to the subnet using the Iomega Storage Manager



    Any external storage device, such as a USB device, connected to your Iomega EZ

    When selecting what data to copy on the source storage device, you can choose a specific folder or
    all folders. You can also copy from a folder on an external storage device mounted to your Iomega
    EZ .
    When selecting the destination device, you can copy files to the top-level folder on the destination
    device (the default option), or to an existing folder on this device, which adds the copied files into
    folders.
    You can manually start or stop a Copy Job by clicking start or stop buttons on the Copy Jobs page.
    You can schedule a Copy Job to run automatically at a set day and time.
    Copy Jobs Limitations

    Securing Your Device and Contents
    What Is Security and Do I Need It?
    Security is an optional feature you can enable on your Iomega EZ Media & Backup Center to secure
    Shares, create users, and allow some features to be enabled. When you create users, you limit
    access to your Iomega EZ to specific people, and when you secure Shares, you limit data access to
    specific users. Security adds an extra layer of protection to your Iomega EZ beyond whatever form of
    security you have on your local network. Without security, all data on your Iomega EZ can be
    accessed by anyone on your local network.
    To secure your Iomega EZ :


    First enable security and create an administrator user.



    Create users. .



    Secure any existing or new Shares.



    Secure any existing or new iSCSI drives.

    Enabling Security and Creating an Administrator User
    With security turned on, only administrator users can view or change settings on the Iomega EZ ,
    including creating or deleting users and Shares. When you create users, you limit access to your
    Iomega EZ to specific people, and when you secure Shares, you limit data access to specific users.
    1. On the Security page, click the switch on.
    2. When you turn security on, you will be asked to create an administrator user. Provide a
    username and password, and then confirm your password.
    3. Encryption is always available when you access your Iomega EZ using https. By setting local
    encryption, you enforce encryption on your local network. By setting remote encryption, you
    enforce encryption outside your local network, such as through the internet. Choices for both
    encryption types are Not required, Passwords only (passwords are encrypted through https),
    and Always (encryption is always enforced). Always encrypting communication is safest, but
    can impact performance.
    Note: When security is turned on, browser communications with the Iomega EZ are
    encrypted. Therefore, each computer that attempts to access the Iomega EZ may encounter
    a security warning, which can be safely ignored. In addition, you may be asked to accept a
    signed certificate for the Iomega EZ , which you should accept. If you change the device
    name at a later date, these warnings may appear again.
    Iomega EZ administrators do not have access to all Shares by default. Access rights to Shares
    must be granted explicitly to administrators, as with other users.
    4. If you have your own security certificate, you can load it by selecting Use an imported
    certificate and browsing to the certificate to load it.
    5. Click Apply to save your changes.
    6. Click here to learn how to create users.
    7. Click here to learn how to secure any existing or new Shares.
    Disabling Security
    Disabling security will cause all defined users to be deleted.
    Note: If you are using other features on your Iomega EZ that require security, you cannot disable
    security until those features are also disabled.
    1. On the Security page, click the switch off.
    2. Disabling security will cause all defined users and groups to be deleted. Check the box to
    disable security.

    Personal Cloud: Accessing Your Device From
    Anywhere in the World
    What Is an Iomega Personal Cloud ?
    An Iomega Personal Cloud turns an Iomega EZ Media & Backup Center into a hub for sharing files and
    backing up data among computers anywhere in the world. A Personal Cloud can exist on your Iomega
    EZ Media & Backup Center , or on another Iomega network device. When you create a Personal
    Cloud, you gain access to your Iomega EZ from anywhere on the internet. You can also share with
    friends and family by inviting users to join your Personal Cloud. You manage Personal Cloud users the
    same way you manage other users on your Iomega EZ , so you control the storage and content they
    can access through the Personal Cloud. Trusted devices can be added to your Personal Cloud to
    connect them through the internet as if they are on a common home network with your Iomega EZ .
    People who join your Personal Cloud can access data, perform Copy Job operations, use your Iomega
    EZ as a QuikProtect remote target, stream media from your Iomega EZ over the internet, and use
    remote desktop to access computers on the local network for your Iomega EZ . If you allow a user to
    join their trusted devices to the Cloud, those devices become part of the Cloud and can be accessed
    by other users on the Cloud.
    Iomega Personal Cloud Key Terms
    The following are a few key terms to help get you started with a Personal Cloud:


    Iomega Personal Cloud — This is a setting configured on your Iomega StorCenter EZ Media
    Console that allows you to securely share storage and media capabilities with computers
    around the world.



    Web Access — You can use Personal Cloud information to access your Iomega EZ from the web.
    Enter myCloudName.Myiomegacloud.com in a web browser, and when prompted, enter a valid
    username and password for your Iomega EZ . You can also use the Iomega Link, which is an
    application that runs on mobile devices, by entering the Personal Cloud name and then a valid
    username and password. For more information on the Iomega Link , refer to its documentation.



    My Personal Cloud — When you are the administrator of an Iomega EZ , you can create a
    Personal Cloud through the Iomega StorCenter EZ Media Console and then invite people to join
    it. You create and manage the Personal Cloud on your Iomega StorCenter EZ Media Console
    through the My Personal Cloud configuration option. The Personal Cloud that you administer is
    called My Personal Cloud.



    Other Personal Cloud — If you want to have your Iomega EZ join that Personal Cloud instead of
    administering your own, select the option for Other Personal Cloud. Enter the Personal Cloud
    name, username and password you received when you were invited to join your Iomega EZ as a
    Trusted Device on the other Personal Cloud.



    Joining an Iomega Personal Cloud as a Trusted Device — To connect your computer or your
    Iomega EZ as a trusted device to a Personal Cloud, you use the username and password given to
    you for that Personal Cloud. The person managing the Personal Cloud has to create you as a
    user on the device hosting the Personal Cloud and give you permission to add trusted devices.
    You can connect your Iomega EZ to only one Personal Cloud at any given time, so you must
    select between either My Personal Cloud or Other Personal Cloud.

    An administrator should complete the following tasks to set up or join a Personal Cloud:


    create a Personal Cloud



    invite people to a Personal Cloud



    join a trusted device to a Personal Cloud

    Is My Content Secure?
    Your content is always secure using an Iomega Personal Cloud . If you create a Personal Cloud with
    security disabled, you are required to enter a password when accessing your Iomega device
    remotely. Enabling security allows you to share your Iomega device with the people you choose. For
    example, you have photos of your new baby you want to share with your sister, your brother, and
    your sister-in-law. To share your baby photos with these family members, create a Personal Cloud,
    and then invite your sister, your brother, and your sister-in-law to join your Personal Cloud. Your
    Iomega StorCenter provides an easy way to send email invitations and instructions to the people you
    select as Personal Cloud users. In this way, your content is never exposed to the public, and remains
    private. It is visible only to the individuals you invite to be Personal Cloud users. Content of the
    Personal Cloud is determined by you as the Personal Cloud owner. Refer to the help topic links
    below for more information on Personal Cloud.
    Note that people added to your Personal Cloud as users are not required to own or have access to an
    Iomega device . The process of adding someone as a Personal Cloud user grants them access to your
    Personal Cloud from any computer.

    Iomega EZ Media and Backup Center User Guide

    Creating an Iomega Personal Cloud
    Before you can work with your Iomega Personal Cloud, you first create a Personal Cloud and
    configure the settings.
    After your Personal Cloud is ready and connected to the internet as indicated by the status images,
    you can invite people to join your Personal Cloud. When you invite people to join your Personal
    Cloud, you add them as users on your Iomega StorCenter . The invited users receive an email
    invitation that includes the username and password they must provide when connecting to the
    Personal Cloud from the Iomega Storage Manager on their computer.
    If you have content on your Iomega device that you do not want to share with members of your
    Personal Cloud, you should put that content in secured Shares that are not accessible to anyone
    invited to your Personal Cloud.
    Note: This procedure assumes you did not create a Personal Cloud using the initial Iomega Setup
    portal. If you have already created a Personal Cloud, you do not have to follow this procedure.
    1. On the Iomega Personal Cloud page, expand the Configure section.
    2. Click the My Personal Cloud button to open the portal that lets you create your Personal
    Cloud.
    After you click the My Personal Cloud button, a new website containing the portal opens.
    You create a Personal Cloud on this website. After you create the Personal Cloud, you return
    to the Iomega StorCenter Console.
    3. If your Iomega device is not secured, you are prompted to create a remote access password.
    This is a password that anyone not on your local network must enter to access your device.
    After completing these steps, the Personal Cloud Quick Setup Wizard opens, so you can
    create Shares, invite users, or configure Copy Jobs. You can use the Quick Setup Wizard or
    close it and begin using your Personal Cloud.

    How do I...
    invite people to a Personal Cloud
    join a trusted device to a Personal Cloud

    Personal Cloud: Accessing Your Device From Anywhere in the World

    Configuring Router Port Forwarding for Personal Cloud
    In most cases, your Iomega StorCenter attempts to automatically configure your router. However, if
    it cannot, a message displays that your router is not configured for port forwarding, and you must
    manually configure your router to forward a specific port to your Iomega device . Most routers refer
    to this as port forwarding, application access, or virtual server. It is recommended that you refer to
    your router's documentation for setting these values. When you set up port forwarding, you are
    allowing data to travel through your Personal Cloud between your Iomega device and trusted
    devices.
    When you have selected a port value to forward for Personal Cloud, click
    Settings on the
    Personal Cloud page, and enter your selected port number in the Personal Cloud settings dialog box.
    If you have more than one Personal Cloud, you can enter a range of port values for your Personal
    Clouds. The range of port values is 50500-50599. You must also port forward port 443 to enable https
    access to your Iomega device .
    Router Port Forwarding
    Some routers have a UPnP option. If you have a UPnP router, enabling this option allows the Iomega
    device software to automatically configure the correct forwarding ports. Otherwise, you must
    perform additional steps by manually enabling port forwarding on your home network router. Port
    forwarding allows invited users to connect remote computers or other Iomega device devices outside
    of your local area network (LAN) as trusted devices to the Personal Cloud on your network.
    Note: Port forwarding must be configured for both the network router on which the Personal Cloud
    is configured, and any remote network from which trusted devices are accessing the Personal Cloud.
    The following steps are generic router settings. If you have never logged into your router before, you
    must consult the manufacturer’s documentation to find specific details such as default IP address,
    default administrator account, and password.
    1. Log in to your router by entering its IP address in the browser’s URL field from your computer.
    If prompted, enter administrator account name and password.
    2. Navigate to the Port Forwarding configuration page. This is often related to Port Mapping,
    Application, Virtual Server, or Gaming configuration options.
    3. Type in the desired application or service name. This is typically a blank or drop-down field
    where you can type or choose a user-specified application or service name for the port you are
    forwarding. Create a new entry with a value like “Iomega Personal Cloud ” in this field.
    4. Enter a port number for the Personal Cloud service in the range 50500-50599 in both the port
    start and port end fields. Port number 50500 is the default. It should not be necessary to
    change this value, but if you do, choose the next available port; for example, 50501. If you
    decide to choose a port in the higher range, note that the Media Server uses the same range of
    ports, numbering backwards from 50599.
    5. Repeat the previous step, using port 443 to enable https communication with your Iomega
    device .
    6. Enter the IP address of your Iomega device which contains the Personal Cloud. The IP address
    displays on the System Status page when you log into the device's web interface.
    7. Save the changed settings.
    8. Reboot the router if required.

    Sharing Content Using Social Media
    Sharing Content using Social Media: Overview
    If you have an account with social media services such as Facebook, Flickr, or YouTube, you can
    share content on your Iomega EZ Media & Backup Center with your friends and family using one or
    more of these social media sites. To share your content using social media sites, create Shares called
    Active Folders, and connect each Active Folder with a social media account. Refer to the help topic
    links below for more information on these procedures. When you add photos and movies to an Active
    Folder, those files are automatically uploaded to the social media site associated with that Active
    Folder. If you have photos or movies you want to share with others, this is a great way to make your
    content available to people who may not have access to your Iomega EZ .
    If you have configured a Personal Cloud on your Iomega EZ , you can grant Personal Cloud users
    access to Shares and Active Folders. This is useful if you want to allow users to add files to your
    social media sites. For example, if your Iomega EZ has a Flickr Active Folder, you can grant Personal
    Cloud users access to that Active Folder. In this manner, when photos are added to the Flickr Active
    Folder, either by you or by Personal Cloud users, those photos are uploaded automatically to your
    Flickr account.
    Note that an Active Folder can only be associated with one social media account. For example, if
    you want Active Folders for your Facebook and YouTube accounts, create two Active Folders, and
    assign one Active Folder to Facebook, and one to YouTube. Using this example, any photos you add
    to your Facebook Active Folder are automatically uploaded to your Facebook page, and any movies
    you add to your YouTube Active Folder are automatically uploaded to your YouTube page. Not only
    is this a fast and easy way to share content, but uploading content to your social media sites
    provides an additional backup of your content, as the content is stored both on your Iomega EZ and
    at your social media accounts.

    Media Management
    Media Management Overview
    The Iomega EZ has a built-in media server that, when turned on, scans for media content in specific
    Shares that have media sharing enabled. Any media content contained in these specific Shares are
    accessible to any user on your network with a media player, even if the Share is secured. For
    information on enabling a folder as a media folder, refer to Managing Shares.
    Scanning for media content
    The Media Server automatically scans for media content on a regular basis. However, you can click
    Scan now at any time to force the media server to perform an immediate scan for media content.
    This is especially useful after you have created new folders with media sharing enabled and copied a
    large amount of media content to them.

    Iomega EZ Media and Backup Center User Guide

    Media Services Capabilities and Limitations
    One important consideration when using the media server is that it can share media content on your
    Iomega EZ with anyone on the internet. When media sharing is enabled, internet users, including
    those users on mobile devices running the Iomega Link, can access media content on your Iomega EZ
    .
    Note: When you enable internet access to your media content, all media content is available to any
    user on the internet, regardless of any security you may have applied to a media file. All your
    pictures, movies, and music are available to anyone accessing your Iomega EZ . You should be sure
    you want to make all your media content this accessible.

    3. Click Apply to save your changes.
    4. In the confirmation dialog box, check Check this box to continue.
    5. Click OK to save your selection or click Cancel.
    To access media content, internet users enter a non-secure IP address in their browser along with
    the port number 50599 used to access the media server, for example, http://72.xx.xxx.104:50599,
    where "x" is the IP value for your network. When a user enters this IP address, the Twonky Server
    page on the Iomega device displays. Refer to the Support section of the Twonky Server page for

    Media Aggregation
    If you have multiple Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) servers in your network that have media
    content, you can combine all media content into one view by enabling aggregation on your Iomega
    device . When you enable aggregation, all media content on DLNA servers is available for playback
    using a DLNA player, such as Playstation®3, Windows Media Player®, or Xbox 360®. In addition, you
    can optionally copy all media content from your network servers to your Iomega device .
    To set up media aggregation, click

    Settings and choose one of the following options:



    None — Media aggregation is off. This is the default setting.



    Show Common View — This enables media aggregation and allows all media content from
    computers on the network to be played back by a DLNA player. All your movies, music, and
    pictures are linked from various computers and can be played back from one view. All
    aggregated media files remain on their original device, and can only be played while that
    device is powered on and connected to the network.



    Copy Files — This enables media aggregation and automatically copies all media content from
    computers, both networked and local, to your Iomega device . All your movies, music, and
    pictures from various computers can be played back from one view, and they are copied into
    Shares on your Iomega device . Because all media files are copied to the Iomega device , they
    can be played even if the original device they were on is powered off or not connected to the
    network.



    Copy on Request — This enables media aggregation but does not automatically copy all media
    content from computers, both networked and local, to your Iomega device . Computers on the
    network will have to enable media aggregation individually and then media files are copied to
    the Iomega device . If a computer is running the Iomega Storage Manager, media aggregation is
    automatically enabled.

    Note: When you enable media aggregation, the media server restarts, and any media you are
    currently streaming stops playing. You can begin streaming your media after the media server has
    restarted.

    Streaming Music, Movies, and Pictures
    The Media Server supports playback of videos, music and pictures from any UPnP AV (Universal Plug
    and Play Audio Visual) network media players, such as Playstation3, Windows Media Player, or Xbox
    360.
    You can play back all your media files from your individual home computers by enabling media
    aggregation on your Iomega device . You can also connect USB mass storage devices (such as your
    iPod, mp3 player, or USB drive) to your Iomega device and directly stream files through the device,
    or access media files through a networked media player. Below are two examples of how to set up
    the following media players:


    iTunes



    Xbox 360

    Note: The procedures shown below are intended as examples. Your media player or version may
    operate differently. It is recommended that you refer to your media player documentation for
    instructions on how to add a network device.
    Example: Setting up iTunes
    1. Locate the source directory of your iTunes media content.
    2. Drag, or copy, your existing media content to a Share that has media sharing enabled.
    3. When you open the iTunes Library, iTunes will display all of the media content from the Iomega
    device .
    Example: Setting up Xbox 360
    1. Connect your Xbox 360 to your TV and to the same local network as your Iomega device .
    2. Navigate to the Media Tab in Xbox 360 and select a media-enabled Share.
    3. Select Computer from the options menu.
    4. Click Yes, Continue when asked if you have downloaded and installed media sharing software
    on your computer, since the Iomega device device comes preconfigured with this software.
    5. Select Iomega device from the list of names. You should now see all the public media content
    on your device.

    (Network Address Translation) firewalls.
    1. One of the easiest ways to identify this issue is to log in to the router to which the Iomega EZ is
    connected.
    2. Once you have logged in, go to the page that shows the router's WAN IP address; usually Status
    or Network Info.
    3. If the WAN IP address begins with 192.168, 10, or 172, you may have a NAT Firewall between
    the router and internet connection.
    There are several options for resolving double NAT situations. The sections below explore the pros
    and cons of each resolution:

    These instructions will refer to the router that is connected directly to the internet
    as the Primary Router. The cascaded router or router to which your Iomega EZ is
    connected is referred to as the Secondary Router.


    Use the primary router's DMZ



    Port forward the primary router to the secondary router



    Put the secondary router in bridging mode



    Put the primary router in bridging mode

    Enabling the DMZ
    Most routers have a feature called DMZ or Default Server. DMZ stands for Demilitarized Zone, Data
    Management Zone, Demarcation Done, or Perimeter Network. The DMZ allows you to enter an IP
    address that will exist outside the router's NAT Firewall.
    This is the easiest way to configure your network to handle double NAT situations; however, it is
    dependent upon DMZ functionality within your primary router.
    To enable the DMZ:
    1. Log in to the primary router.
    2. Navigate to the settings page for DMZ or Default Server. Refer to the documentation that came
    with your router for information on where this feature is found.
    3. Enter the secondary router's IP address.
    4. Save your settings.
    Your secondary router is no longer behind your primary router's firewall. If port forwarding is
    correctly configured, remote access should now be working properly. Moving your secondary router
    into the DMZ should not have any effect on the security of the network, since it is still protected by
    the secondary router's firewall.

    Configuring Port Forwarding on Double NAT Networks

    118

    Hardware Management
    If for some reason the network configuration cannot be changed and your setup requires the double
    NAT, you must perform the port forwarding steps twice. On the primary router, set the port
    forwarding to the cascaded router's external IP address. On the cascaded router, set the port
    forwarding to the Iomega EZ s IP address.

    Bridging the Secondary Router
    Make sure that the primary router (usually the one connected to or acting as the DSL/Cable modem)
    is the only one with DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) and NAT (Network Address
    Translation) enabled. The secondary should be changed to bridging mode. Ensure that the secondary
    router connects to the primary router using a standard port rather than the port labeled Uplink or
    internet. This turns your secondary router into a switch; however, you can still enable its Wireless
    Access Point if so equipped.
    Refer to the documentation that came with your router for configuration information and settings.

    Bridging the Primary Router
    If none of the above options are available, you must enable transparent bridging on your primary
    router. This may require contacting your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to configure the DSL or
    Cable Modem/NAT into bridge mode, which then disables the first NAT/Firewall. After this first
    firewall in the modem is disabled, the secondary router handles all the network traffic, Port
    Forwarding, and allows Remote Access to work.
    You should not attempt bridging without help from the ISP. If bridge mode is
    attempted by the customer and not configured properly, it can render the
    customer's internet connection inoperable. Primary router bridging may also require
    special configuration information and settings on the secondary router.
    If you configured your Iomega EZ using DHCP, you may not be able to reconnect to it via Remote
    Access after a reboot. DHCP automatically receives an IP address from the server whenever the
    Iomega EZ restarts. This is a very simple way to configure the Iomega EZ but can cause problems
    with your router's port forwarding settings. The router does not dynamically update port forwarding
    settings and cannot port forward to your Iomega EZ if its IP address changes.
    To resolve this problem, try one of the following processes:


    Increase the length of the DHCP lease: Your router attempts to remember all DHCP clients and
    assigns them the same IP address every time they request an IP address; however, the router
    forgets clients if they do not request an IP address for a certain amount of time. Your router
    has a setting for the duration of the validity of the DHCP lease. If your network requires DHCP,
    this may be a good solution; however, it is not always guaranteed to work. Occasionally
    updating your router's port forwarding settings may be required.



    Use Static DHCP: Some routers allow you to assign Static IP addresses through the DHCP system
    based on the MAC address of the device. This ensures that the Iomega EZ always gets the same
    IP address, and your port forwarding settings are always correct. Static DHCP allows you to
    leave your Iomega EZ in DHCP mode. Refer to your router's documentation for more
    information on configuring DHCP settings.



    Use a Manual IP Address: Changing the Manual IP address reduces the reliance of your Iomega
    EZ on the DHCP server; however, you must perform additional configuration for it to work
    properly.
    1. Log in to your router and write down the DHCP range it is using.

    2. Refer to your router's documentation for more information on configuring DHCP
    settings.
    3. Navigate to the IP address settings interface page on your Iomega EZ . For more
    information, check the Network Settings section of this manual.
    4. Enter a new IP address that is outside of your router's DHCP range. For example, if your
    router is distributing IP addresses in the range of 192.168.14.2 through 192.168.14.50,
    you must assign the Iomega EZ a number between 192.168.14.51 and 192.168.14.255.
    Make sure you are assigning the Iomega EZ an IP address that is not in use by another
    device.
    5. Enter a subnet mask. The subnet mask describes the size of your network. For most
    networks this is 255.255.255.0 which allows for 256 network devices. If you are on a
    larger network or are using the self-assigned APIPA range (169.254.x.x), you must use a
    255.255.0.0 or larger subnet mask.
    6. For best results, enter the IP address(es) for your DNS Server(s).
    7. If necessary, enter the IP address(es) for your WINS server(s).
    8. Enter a gateway address. In most cases, this is the IP address of your router.
    9. If necessary, update your router's port forwarding information with the new static
    DHCP IP address.
