Accessing NAS device across networks

Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices can be accessed across networks (unless the Beacon is in bridge mode)

  1. If the NAS device is connected to a Nokia WiFi Beacon, then only client devices connected on Nokia WiFi network can access the NAS device. By default these devices cannot be accessed from the uplink network in the external gateway. Changes can be made to this setting only in the Web GUI.

To allow Nokia WiFi client devices to access NAS device connected to external gateway:

  • Login to WebGUI with the user name and password on the sticker of the root Beacon
  • Navigate to Security tab
  • Choose Access Control option
  • Select Allow for HTTP row in WAN column
  • Click the Save button
