Hi,
I have a networked hard drive that was configured for our network by a previous admin. I have now come in and changed everything, but he failed to tell me that the networked drive was set up with a static IP from the device. From what i read, the only way to reset the IP settings are to press a button on the drive, however, I am a remote admin out of the office.

The drive's IP is 172.8.254.2 and the server's address is 10.0.1.1 and 10.0.1.2. Is there ANY way I can access the device with the different IP addresses so I can reset it?
