Getting to your QNAP NAS server or appliance is easy no matter how the network is configured with QNAP's Finder Tool. The tool will allow you to either get to the main login page of the NAS or setup a new configuration when installing the NAS for the first time.

The main login page puts you right in the middle of the action and you have a few choices that I consider shortcuts to other areas. These include Administration (Management), Web File Manager, Customer Service (A direct link to QNAP's customer service), QNAP WIKI and finally the QNAP User Forums.

 

Main Menu System

Once inside, the main menu system is called Overview and several commonly used tasks have shortcuts on this landing page.

 

In our deep dive today we are going to look at each menu and the settings that are available as options inside the menu system.
