The System Administration area covers a broad range of setup options that are generally setup before anything else.

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.
