How to use the LG MyData and File Manager Smartphone apps with an LG NAS - LG Consumer Knowledge Base

















 Smartphone Apps For The LG NAS



LG provides two free applications for smartphones that allow you to remotely access the files on your LG NAS device. The apps are called MyData and File Manager. There are versions available for Android and iOS (iPhone).

Note: Your NAS will require the firmware that was released in April (or later) to work with these apps.

MyData is the main app that you will most likely want to use most of the time. It uses the DLNA server on the NAS to allow you access to your files over the Internet.


Note: The MyData app will only access folders that you have shared in the DLNA server menu of the NAS. It uses port 49815.

The File Manager app uses FTP to communicate and operates like a traditional FTP program.


Note: The File Manager app will only access folders that you have given FTP permissions in the folder setup menu of the NAS.

To start using the apps, download and install the 2 apps from android Market or iTunes.
