Hello,
I just recently purchased a 4TB seagate NAS which is hooked into my home network. I have given it a static address and it works fine.

I am trying to access the storage from my office and would like to punch a hole in my firewall to allow me to do that. Unfortunately, it's an AT&T Uverse 2wire DSL modem.

How would I go about doing this?

Thanks,

You need to go into advanced, firewall, add seagate as an application for both tcp and udp, add the port seagate uses and the IP address on the NAS. Save the rule and test from outside like from your smartphone. Hope this helps!
