Normally I blog about news and guides for Citrix related products, but today I’m breaking that habit. For a long time I have wanted to set up some kind of storage device on my home network, something I could access from my PCs, Laptop, Tablets and smartphone. I didn’t want to run a full sized PC 24/7 as that uses a lot of electricity, I also didn’t want to spend a lot of money on a dedicated NAS (Network Attached Storage). device. As an avid Lifehacker.com reader I had heard of the PogoPlug, but then I found this guide and knew it was the path for me.
You can pick up a PogoPlug (Eo2 model), on Amazon for less than $40.00 USD, add a 2+ TB USB hard drive and most of you will have enough storage for your Music and Photos. Plus you can still use the official PogoPlug software and access your files from anywhere! My first test was to stream a video on my phone over 4G while my Wife was driving us somewhere.
This blogger has done a wonderful job with this guide and provides great support if you have any questions.
