Instructions from outside

The above instructions are good if you are sitting at your house and then doing the SSH from your home wireless network. Then the ip addresses are (or 105 or 110) etc depending on what ip address your router has given to your wdmwb(western digital myworld book). What if someone has given a static ip to the wdmwb and forwarded a port to wdmwb on the linksys wrtg (anymodel) router?
Do you have the instructions for that? I have the static ip (given by the internet service provide) that comes to the modem.
teinturman :
i only support the "sitting at your house" solution.
Also this is the only secure way to configure your Mybook.
Note that for critical security reasons, the Western Digital interface must never be accessible from outside (never forward port 80 )
