A Deep Dive Into Thecus NAS Software

By: Chris Ramseyer | SOHO NAS/DAS in Storage | Posted: Mar 5, 2010 3:31 pm
Manufacturer: Thecus

User and Group Authentication


Office administrators and even some home users will appreciate the option to setup user groups and access policies for individual users.




To start down the path of managed access, you must first setup and enable ADS.




After enabling support for the function you can start by adding local users. If at some point you need to edit users access or remove them entirely, the User area is where those options are found.




It is also possible to make group policies and add users to a specific group.




One very nice feature is the ability to upload or download a backup file that holds the user policy data.


Application Server


Using your NAS as an application server is quite easy and the Application Server area is where you configure your applications. Later in this article we will discuss the Thecus User Communities and how they have managed to build custom applications that add to the functionality of Thecus NAS servers.




Out of the box Thecus includes two applications. The first is the print server. You can attach a USB printer to one of the many USB ports on a Thecus NAS.




The second application included with the NAS handles iTunes. I have to admit that I am not the biggest Apple fan so you will have to explore this one on your own.
