There isn't a package for Linux - because you don't need one. In KDE or
GNOME you should see it in "Network".
You can mount it with NFS.

Set MyCloud to use a static address. For extra security don't use the
Public MyCloud directory.

The hard drives in WD MyCloud do not have a good track record.
MyCloud runs a mostly standard Debian.
