How to set up the plug-in USB drive for outside access via FTP and HTTP ?

I already registered and received the host name and IP address from MyNetGear/No-IP.  The DDNS status shows "succesfull" and I can ping the host name and the IP address from any computer.  I also set up the external FTP and HTTP access for the USB drive by checking the boxes.  But when I tried to access the host name or the IP address, it kept failing.  The error says "took too long to respond".  Is there some steps that I missed ?  Please help.

Hello MasterWin

 

What modem/router are you using?

Re: How to set up the plug-in USB drive for outside access via FTP and HTTP ?

I already went through that setup.  IThe USE drive is set up for external FTP and external HTTP using no-ip dynamic DNS IP address.  The issue I have is my Netgear N300 does not respond to the external FTP or external HTTP.  Is there some setting on N300 that I have to enable to make the N300 respond ?
