The System Administration area covers a broad range of setup options that are generally setup before anything else.
In the overview section for system administration we can easily find quick links to everything covered in this section.
The General Setting allows us to dive right in and make changes to the NAS servers name and configure administrator's access. Here you will also find the date and time settings.
The Network Setup is one of the most confusing for novice users, but QNAP has made everything quite easy.
It really doesn't get much easier than that does it? Just plug in the numbers or set the auto setting and the NAS will obtain an IP from your DHCP router.
Newer QNAP NAS products are able to take advantage of IPV6. Here we see the screen that enables this feature.
The Hardware tab allows us to enable, change and observe several features that make the NAS perform smoother.
The first part in the security system allows you to manage the level of security on your NAS.
Several protections can be enabled to help keep your data safe from prying eyes.
QNAP allows you to upload and configure a SSL security certificate.
