accessing drobo from other computers


Are you able to access your drobo remotely using other peoples computers

You need to use the corresponding tool to activate sharing, and then, if neccessary, do the same in your internet router.


I am sure jasonhayes was thinking of the Drobo FS, which is a NAS.


If Drobo FS is attached to internet router, it could be possible, that there is need to configure router before you can gain access to Drobo FS remotely.

Thanks for the replies, I will give it a go

hi just a basic thought… if you have a network connection, couldnt you simply share that drive letter like a normal windows workgroup folder share?
eg like between win xp and win98 for example
