iCloud’s Back to My Mac Now Supports Remote Base Station Access

On page 61 and 66 of Take Control of Screen Sharing in Lion, Glenn wrote that you can’t use an iCloud account to access an AirPort Disk or Time Capsule via Back to My Mac, even though you can with a MobileMe account. As Glenn had suspected when he drafted the manuscript, Apple has now added iCloud-based access to Time Capsule drives and USB-attached AirPort drives. Of course, accessing those drives just lets you work with the files on those drives—there is no screen to share on a Time Capsule or AirPort base station! Glenn wrote much more about this topic in his TidBITS article, AirPort Utility 6.0 Adds iCloud Support but Removes Many Features.
