Remote Connection using Back to my Mac for Time Capsule?

How do I connect to my Time Capsule and connected usb drive/printer now that Back to my Mac for Mobile Me is disabled and iCloud is running Back to my Mac?
More information:
I used to use the Mobile Me's version of Back to my Mac to enable connecting with my time Capsule, but how is this done now that iCloud has taken over Back to my Mac and I have upgraded to Lion.
I have a Feb2011 MBP and a 2010 minimac the macmini is always connected to the time capsule, but I would like to be able to connect directly to the time capsule without having to go through the macmini.
Thank you for your help

It is possible but I am not sure it is worth the hassle..
Your key issue here is public IP for your network.. if you have a static ip you are fine.. but very few people have this. It also depends on how the TC is setup.. is it the main router for the network or plugged into a modem router which has the role of main router, even if you use the TC as a secondary router.
Without more info..
1. This is easy if you have a static public IP and the TC is the main router and gets the public IP on the wan port.. just go to disk sharing in the airport utility manual setup and check for wan (internet access).
2. If you have a dynamic IP, then you will have to sort out how you are going to find that IP.. the normal method to use dyndns account is not directly applicable because the TC has no client. It is possible to set up dyn dns but you will need to purchase your own domain name.
3. You may find it easier to use standard router and bridge the TC. A standard router can be setup to port forward 548 AFP files service to the TC ip address. You may or maynot be able to access the printer. Certainly would be easier if the printer has IPP services. And is a true network printer.
4. Use vpn.. get a vpn router so you can setup proper vpn endpoints.. then you use VPN service to access your local network.. this is far more secure and will work with dyndns just fine.
