    Can you setup IP Routing with a Dynamic IP ?

    That happens when you connect through Wifi or Ethernet automatically.

    If it is not on your network, you have to either use the application for it, FTP or VPN. Most cloud services can be accessed via the web browser. IP routing to the outside world is handled by the various networks that your connection goes through, to reach the website or file storage server.

    How can I verify if IP Routing is on my network ?

    I can use an FTP program to access what is on a NAS via a cloud based service if my network supports it, correct ?

    I was informed that my IP has to be static, not dynamic, unless you are explaining how to do this with a dynamic IP address ?

    First I need a cloud based service account, as in dropbox, then I'd have to setup a FTP account, what if the NAS has an IP couldn't I give the cloud based service the IP address so it can make the connection with the NAS, therefore, all my files are not on the cloud, but can be accessed though the cloud anywhere in the world.

    Sorry if I do not understand you question, but why not just creating a public domain name?

    It is private as I stated, as long as you do not go around announcing the user log in info. When connecting to say Dropbox or box.com like I use. They both have utilities for Windows that creates a secured VPN connection to the Cloud share space.

    You are over thinking this whole thing. Box.com & Dropbox.com both have info on their websites how their Cloud service works. Box.com is giving 10 GB right now for free. When iOS 5 came out. They were running a promo to get 50 GB for free.

    I use an Owncloud server that my brother hosts, which gives me 1TB of secured storage space.

    That is not what the OP is asking about.

    I was informed, to connect to a NAS though a cloud service, I need to route my IP as the thread title mentions. No where in your replies, do you mention this ?
