NAS products are equal parts hardware performance and software features. One compliments the other in a balanced product. You need more hardware performance to run more software features at the same time.
To setup the TerraMaster F2 NAS 2, we entered the web setup menu by entering the IP address into our web browser. This menu system is a much needed upgrade to the previous implementation and allows a streamlined setup process.
Moving through setup, the fourth menu item allows you to enable the services you will use.
Initial RAID setup is configured in the sixth menu, here you will find options for RAID 0, RAID 1 along with single disk mode and JBOD.
After initial setup, the web admin page redirects and allows you to login.
Entering the administration panel, you will find an interface that resembles the old QNAP setup.
The System Administration tab allows you to adjust network settings, control power management features, along with direct access to the firmware update function.
Access Right Management allows configuration of users and user groups. Additionally you can setup shared folders and user quotas.
Disk Management allows you to setup your preferred RAID mode. Other features include drive encryption and iSCSI.
The Network Services menu carries the configuration for many of the network services we have come to love. In here, we have SAMBA, AFP, NFS, FTP and SSH to name a few.
Within the Application Server menu, TerraMaster has added a slew of server apps. MySQL, PT Download and iTunes Server are included.
Moving over to the backup menu, we find remote replication through Rsync, along with Time Machine for Apple users.
