We have an Apple Time Capsule that we use as a wireless router in our small office network. We have an external hard drive with files that are shared across 4 computers on our network connected via USB to the Time Capsule.
Before we began renting out an office space, I had a similar setup at home and had Back To My Mac enabled with an Apple Airport Extreme.
I was able use my laptop and connect back to my hard drive at home. I'd like the same capabilities when I'm out of the office, using my laptop when I'm not at the office to connect back to the Apple Router to gain access to the external hard drive.
When I try to set up Back to My Mac properly, I never get access back to the drive, the odd thing is if I try to connect back to my iMac using the GO > CONNECT TO SERVER menu from the Finder menu bar, I can successfully connect from outside of the office network. I'm just not sure why I can't connect back to the Time Capsule itself.
I could essentially connect the external HDD to the iMac but then that would mean leaving the iMac on at all times, as opposed to connecting directly to the Time Capsule which remains powered at all times regardless.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
