Buffalo offers remote access to media files with LinkStation Live


These busy lives we all lead – we haven’t even got time to kick back and listen to our tunes. But if you have your media files stored on a Buffalo LinkStation Live device, you can take advantage of a new web access facility to hook up with them wherever you are.

“Consumers rarely restrict themselves to using just one computer, and considering the vast amounts of digital files, such as photos, films and music, that are stored in homes across the world, why should users be constrained in accessing it?” commented Gerardine Lynch, Product Marketing Manager at Buffalo. “The LinkStation Live allows users to store, share and stream digital content in the home, while the new Web Access tool delivers the same capabilities whether users are at home, work or in an internet café in Australia!”

Log onto buffaloNAS.com from anywhere in the world and enter the registered name of the LinkStation – you can then connect to your digital files for streaming or download. It also has optional SSL (https) encryption for security, and of course, you can restrict access to you or selected friends. It’s free and available via a firmware upgrade. It will soon be compatible with other Buffalo NAS devices, such as the TeraStation Live.

You can pick up a LinkStation Live from £106 excluding VAT.
