    As far as I know, your iDevice would have to be seen as 'local' to the TimeCapsule device... and I'm not sure if it can be accomplished - even if you use a VPN to connect to your 'Home' network via the Internet... someone can fill us both in if it's possible at all.

    I'm under the impression you can NOT access file data on a time capsule locally or over WAN using an iOS device. Using the AirPort Utility you can access configuration settings on your LAN. From your computer to access your TC you need to turn "Setup over WAN" to ON and enter your MobileMe/iCloud information in "Back To My Mac".

    This is my impression but it's never had much success accessing my time capsule remotely.

    You're right. Can't be done from an iOS device.

    Yes this can be done. Download the remote files app to your ios device (its free). Enable the access from wan on your time capsule, setup a dyndns account and get it setup to update your IP address automatically and then setup the remote files app on your ios device. I'd definitely set your time capsule to use accounts as the login method to provide some security. If you run into probs, let me know.

    You can use the File Browser app from the app store

    I wouldn't recommend enabling WAN access to your time capsule, that's a major security problem.

    What files are you specifically trying to access? Dropbox, or something similar may be your best bet, although you can use iCloud for some things (like iWork for instance.)

    Thanks for the information, sounds very promising.

    Do you happen to know if I can I access any file type or just IoS app files?

    tnx

    my understanding that the file browser app, while excellent, will not work remotely with 3rd gen or later time capsules, per the company. Not sure of other similar iOS app alternatives? Anyone else have any experiences here?
