Enabling automatic uploading will upload pictures and videos to your LinkStation or TeraStation automatically whenever your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is connected to your Wi-Fi network (*).
Follow the procedure below to configure your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

 

 

*Your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch must be connected with Wi-Fi to the same network that your LinkStation or TeraStation is connected to.

 

 

 

Initial Setup

 

Install and configure SmartPhone Navigator first before configuring WebAccess i.

- Open the App Store on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and install "SmartPhone Navigator".

 

- For details on how to use SmartPhone Navigator, see the SmartPhone Navigator Help.

 

 

Notes:

Before configuring WebAccess i, make sure that your your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is connected to your router with Wi-Fi.
If you have already configured your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch on your network, you might not need to install Smartphone Navigator.
If you can't complete initial setup with SmartPhone Navigator, or if you are unable to use WebAccess i after setup, see "Using WebAccess i with a Firewall".
