Port 5900 is usually used for VNC (which is one of several tools that lets you control your desktop remotely). I suspect your ISP is somewhat confused on what you really want to do.dsnow wrote:I need to access my shares from outside my LAN with a mac powerbook OS 10.7. My ISP told me I should use port 5900 and they activated it for me. I'm not sure what needs to be done on my readyNAS pro to allow access, and what program to use on my macbook to access the server.
Thanks for any help

One option is to set up either FTP or HTTPS to use port 5900 (which they have already opened for you). But the first question is whether ftp and/or https give you the interface you need. You should answer that first by giving them both a test drive on the lan.dsnow wrote:Thanks for the reply. I found the setup for ftp and http in FrontView. But what setup is needed on my router? My ISP will not give me access to my router-I'll have to ask them them to make any changes that are needed on the router.
