I've used the USB 3.0 port to connect a USB hard drive which I've setup as a network drive on all my computers.


Is there any way I can continue to access my USB HDD connected to my Archer VR900 v1 over the Internet?

I've Googled and I think I could do this if the router let me connect to it as a VPN server. That way, I would be connected to my home network from work.

Is there any way of doing this using the router above?

You can check the "ftp (Via internet)" option under Advance>USB settings>sharing Access. Then you can connect to your USB device remotely by entering ftp://x.x.x.x:21.

Thanks for the reply. I'll use that as a start point but I'd prefer something a bit more secure - FTP is quite vulnerable in a few ways. I'd really prefer to VPN to my home network.

Yeah, it is safer to use VPN service.

One condition, public IP address on the WAN port of your router.
