how do i set remote desktop to drive on network from outside?

i have a drive on the network with Internal IP i would like to get from outside to this drive, i set the router "Adtran" to forward the external IP with port 33900 to the internal IP of the drive with port 3389.
i tried using RDP with the external IP and port 33900 but the connection not get to the drive

which port should i forward in the Port forwarding in the router so when i am using RDP it will open the driver? or should i have to use other outside connection

the gool is to copy files and geting files from the drive from outside

Thanks

What is the drive?  Is it a windows machine?

If it is not a Windows machine RDP will not work.  So the question is?

What exactly is the device your trying to get to?

If the system allows FTP you can set that, but it is very insecure.  All passwords are sent in clear text.  With that being said...

Your need port 21 opened.  Also I am not familiar with your router, but it may have a preset for ftp access if it is a consumer model.

FTP ports can be a little more depending if your using passive mode or not.  To learn more read this:

I'm assuming you have a NAS, and you're trying to get access to that?

Before doing any of this you need to configure the NAS and enable whatever service you want to use. Different NAS devices support a variety of different services. Some support FTP, others support other protocols like CIFS, NFS, Windows network, some even have a fully featured web-interface for managing files etc etc.. your network configuration really depends on what features and services the device allows you to use, and which of those you want to have accessible over the internet.

What is the model of the drive? And what services does it support?
