Our Requirement is, In PHP Application One External HDD is connected in Rackspace Hosting cloud but client had changed its Hosting to Bluehost and then Rackspace Sent that External HDD back to client.

Now require to connect that HDD to Bluehost so i can access that Mount drive in our PHP application.But Bluehost is not giving such type of solution. So then we tell them to mount this HDD to any Linux PC and give us the Remote access through internet or through application so we can encrypt the files and upload to that HDD. Then Client took this CPE and send us the following Details:

CPE Gateway-1 : 173.162.110.46
CPE Subnet Mask-1:  255.255.255.252
Static IP Address: 173.162.110.45
Primary DNS : 75.75.75.75.75
Secondary DNS: 75.75.75.76

But using this above information we don't understand how to configure or what is this information for and that client also don't know.

Please Help , Require that External HDD to Mount on Linux PC and access through internet to connect that HDD.

Do you have access to a shell prompt on the bluehost server? Add a samba network drive that points to where ever your client has hosted the HDD.

No,  From Bluehost they are not giving any support for this to add the Drive in there network and no SSH shell prompt access also.

Ok, well you will need the HDD mount on a linux pc on the client's premise and then they would need to setup access for you to use samba to mount that hdd over the internet. Honestly this all seems like a bad idea, what information is stored on the HDD? Is it backup files that are needed or were you actually using the HDD as a datastore on the previous hosting?

Other than Data-store ,

Before this Bluehost ,
HDD is Mount on Rackspace Cloud and PHP Site is also hosted at Rackspace cloud.
In this  PHP application which encrypt the files using Linux aescrypt utility in PDF Format and put it on the HDD and its mount Drive is accessible  in PHP application Site to access these encrypted files.

So How can i achieve this , coz Bluehost is not ready to put on there network.
And what are the above details for CPE Gateway & Static IP Address Information.

Or is there any Hosting services which Put the HDD On there Network  and give us the access over the internet or through PHP application.

OK Now Update is

That CPE Gateway information is for ISP Configuration in a Router From Comcast Business Services.
Then i have called to comcast and they configure there router with static IP Address and now client's Ubuntu PC is online over the Internet and that External HDD is mounted on that UBUNTU Linux PC.

And also i can connect to that PC using webmin / SSH .

So Now please tell me how to connect to that HDD through our PHP Code and how to use the aescrypt utility..?

If i connect to that HDD using FTP /ssh connection  ..?
Or any other option is available..?

And for aescrypt utility ..If i install aescrypt utility on that Linux PC and use that command in our code...?

Got the Solution as we have installed/ configured  the  Webmin /ssh / ftp /Apache applications on that Ubuntu PC then using port forward option we can connect using ssh & sftp and also through our PHP Curl application.

Also Installed the aescrypt application and from path bin we can use this command to encrypt & decrypt through php application.

Now it works fine

So Please close this question.
