Will my storage device work with with TonidoPlug?

TonidoPlug is compatible with most external USB 2.0 hard drives and flash drives. TonidoPlug 2's hard drive dock supports 2.5" SATA laptop hard drives.


Which file systems does TonidoPlug support?

FAT, FAT32, NTFS, HFS+, ext2, and ext3 are supported.  TonidoPlug 1 recognize HFS drives, but they are not mounted automatically.


TonidoPlug only has one USB port. Is there any way I can I attach multiple USB devices to it?

Yes; you can use a USB hub. TonidoPlug will automatically identify each device connected to the hub. For best compatibility, we recommend using a powered USB hub.


How do I know if TonidoPlug will work with my home/company network?

TonidoPlug's remote access features work right out of the box; there are no complicated configuration changes to make. The only requirement is that you allow outgoing UDP/TCP connections, which is allowed by default in 99% of networks.


Do I need to buy any additional software with my TonidoPlug?

No. Your plug comes with a complete set of browser-based Tonido applications: Explorer, Search, WebsharePro, Sync, and more. You can use TonidoPlug Admin to manage your storage devices and change network settings.

If you'd like to get the most from your TonidoPlug's software, you may purchase a yearly subscription to TonidoPro. To see the full benefits of TonidoPro, visit

Your communications, files, and data are kept private because they're all stored on your TonidoPlug.
