Synology NAS DSM Software Deep Dive

By: Chris Ramseyer | SOHO NAS/DAS in Storage | Posted: Oct 4, 2012 9:45 am
Manufacturer: Synology

Getting Started with Advanced Settings




Here we find ourselves back at the Synology Desktop. On the left side we see a handful of icons. Above the icons we have another icon that is useful and opens up another list of icons.




The upper icon isn't named in the NAS, but it open up an entire page of new icons.




The Control Panel icon opens the door to all of the advanced settings if you want to use these features.








Your Synology NAS comes setup right out of the box to work with most home networks.




There are several settings, but Synology includes an easy to follow and more importantly, an easily searchable Help Menu that explains in detail what each and every setting does.




The easy to follow Help File makes setting up advanced tasks very easy. Within a few minutes you can configure a VPN to your office or make use of iSCSI in your SOHO setting.








For home users, tasks like building a central media hub for media files is equally as easy to configure.




Out of the box several modules are installed and running. You can easily turn these off if you don't need them.




Many other modules are available and you can install them right from the NAS without searching for download files on websites, searching through forums on how to install them and such. It really doesn't get any easier than clicking the Install tab.
