Figured this out. You can mount another nas using the file station app in case anyone needs to know.

Mr. Stephen,

How did you go about doing this. I have a WD My Cloud and need to transfer a handful of large files over. The only way I have found to do this is using my Mac Book Pro as an intercessor... and it's stupid slow.

You have found a quicker way?

Thank you kindly.

I am running the latest beta firmware. It has the filestation 5 app. Not sure if the earlier firmware has a different version with remote mount. But, basically while leaving the wd on the network, you just hit remote mount (next to the wrench in the app), create remote mount and choose CIFS/SMB. Then just user and password and the share folder and that was it. Super fast. I also tried with my mac and it was dumb slow thats why i tried the app.
