Hi Community,

I have the newest version of Airport Extreme Base station and I have shared disks with it. I can connect to my disks via AFP with its IP when I am not connected to the local network while I can't do that with SMB. SMB share works fine on local network. Can someone explain why and whether it can be fixed? I want to use SMB because I use that to connect on my android. Unfortunately, there is no AFP client for Android.
