I assume that....

....you have to configure it and the router to allow incoming connections from the Internet otherwise it is a NAS and not a cloud.

Unless (like my HP printer) it connects out to a central server so no incoming connection is required.

I had a quick look round but couldn't find a description of the mechanics. I assume it does clever things to the router as most punters wouldn't know where to start.
