In a previous topic, (April 2015) the question about how to enable and setup USB on the Hitron CGNM 2250 was asked. The answer was that is was not able to be setup. I have been able to set this up by simply plugging in an external hard-drive, making sure file sharing is turned on on our computer (Windows Vista), and finding the hard-drive in the Network directory. With the hard-drive then mapped with a drive letter, it is very convenient to back up and retrieve files from the hard-drive.
My questions are these:
1. how secure are the files (protected from intruders on the WAN)?
2. Can the system be set up with port forwarding, to enable access from mobile phone, etc?
