Network Services


The Network Services area is where you will be able to configure your additional network features that allow for advanced network functionality.




The over view page shows gives us links to the area settings.




Windows users will want to set this page up so it works with their system seamlessly. Here you name your workgroup or domain.




Apple users will want to go in and configure the Zone settings.




The NFS Service can be enabled in this section for users of advanced networks.




FTP Services have been around for what seems like the beginning of time. Here you can setup your connections and port ranges.




If you still use it then QNAP most likely still have an option for it. Here we see the Telnet and SSH options.




SNMP has a few settings that you can setup as well.




It is possible to use your QNAP NAS as a web server. This feature comes in very handy when developing a new website. You are even able to setup a PHP.ini file which makes setting up Joomila and other software much easier.




UPnP Service is a favorite around the house with consoles like the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 being able to stream media over the network. Bonjour is also available for Apple users.
