    Client of mine has got NAS storage (LACIE D2 Network) for a backup purpose at central office.

    Private ip address for LACIE D2 Network was mapped to a public ip address for the router which is 23x.45.5x.7x

    The remote PC (at remote location) uses Free SynBack to do a backup via FTP (username and password and public ip address 23x.45.5x.7x used) option to the LACIE D2 Network ( at central location).

    I do not have any concern about the backup because it is working fine without any problem.

    But when I type in a browser ftp:// 23x.45.5x.7x,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I can access all folders and files ,,,,,means any one can access those files and folders.

    How can I protect those files , because I could not find an option through NAS storage configuration to protect that from being accessed by anonymous ??

    If it's like any other FTP server you should be able to disable the anonymous account. Although honestly I haven't touched FTP in about a billion years.
