Buffalo Terastation / Livestation backup over internet. (novpn)

Here are some quick instructions on how to backup a Buffalo Terastation and / or livestation to one or the other via the internet with out the need for vpn. I do not recommend doing this with sensitive information. And I also recommend setting up a backup password on the Destination folder. You can also choose encrypt backup to improve security.

1) On the source ts/ls create a new share. Example: “Media”
2) On the destination create a new share with the same name. Also check the ‘Disk Backup’ option.
– Set a complex backup password.
3) Login to the Destination Firewall / Router. Setup NAT / port forwarding for the Destination TS/LS. You will need to forward ports TCP 873 and TCP 22939 to the inside ip address for the Destination TS/LS.
4) On the Source TS/LS. System -> Backup -> View NAS Devices -> Off Subnet TS/LS -> type in the external ip address for the destination network. Click Add.
5) on the source TS/LS. Type in the complex password you set for the ‘Password to Search’
6) Create a Backup job. (I prefer differential) and the offsite NAS will show up as a destination option.
