introduction
Thank you for purchasing the INTELLINET NETWORK SOLUTIONS™
Gigabit SATA NAS 2TB, Model 524469.
Addressing the growing needs for additional high-speed storage in the
SOHO and small/medium-sized business environments, the Gigabit
SATA NAS 2TB lets you install two SATA hard drives up to 1 Terabyte
each for extremely fast access to data storage on your network. And if
additional space is needed, you can connect two additional USB HDDs.
The Gigabit SATA NAS 2TB supports RAID 0 and RAID 1 configurations:
RAID 0 (striped disks) distributes data across both hard drives to improve
speed and capacity — however, if one hard drive fails, the data is lost;
Alternatively, RAID 1 (mirrored disks) is a backup solution using both
hard drives to store the same information — if one hard drive fails, the
information is not lost.
With a Gigabit network connection, the SATA NAS 2TB provides ultrafast data throughput of up to 25 MB/s, making it the perfect network
storage unit for smaller work groups. Plus, you can stream videos and
photos through your Universal Plug and Play-enabled media player in
your home entertainment center.
Follow the instructions in this manual and you’ll also soon be enjoying
the benefits of these additional features:
• Gigabit Ethernet port for high-speed network connectivity
• Supported USB hard drive file systems: FAT32, EXT2, EXT3, NTFS
• Integrated iTunes Digital Audio Access Protocol (DAAP) server delivers
audio streams to any iTunes-compatible media player on the network
• Built-in FTP server allowing remote users to upload/download files
• BitTorrent client to download files from the BT network while having your computer turned off
• Cross-platform file sharing for Windows, Linux and Mac OS
• Supported file serving protocols: CIFS (Samba), FTP, NFS and AFP
• Supports 256 user accounts and user groups

QUICK INSTALLATION
configuration
From the user interface (UI),
you can maintain and
monitor all the functions of
the NAS. This interface is
accessible from any
computer on the network
with the appropriate browser.
Only one user can log in to
the UI at a time.
The password for the UI can
be set in the administrative
menu. This is a different
password than any user
passwords on the NAS. To
get to the lower menus,
simply move your cursor
over the main menu items.
Basic Settings
The Basic Settings screen allows you to name your NAS and configure
it as a DHCP client or as a fixed IP device on the network. Note: On
all screens, click “Apply” to effect any changes to the configuration. The
NAS may reboot to finalize the changes.
NAS Name — Network devices have an IP address and a name. These
two are usually related and allow the network to identify the device.
This name must be unique or there may be difficulties in configuring
and using the NAS. Make sure that no other computer or device in
the network uses the same name that you assign to this NAS.
Domain Name Server — Most of the time, this information isn’t needed,
as your DHCP server will automatically provide the information.
UPnP Media Server — Refer to the UPnP Settings section.
CONFIGURATION
13
iTunes Media Server — Refer to the UPnP Settings section.
DHCP Client — The default factory setting has this enabled (above). There should be a DHCP server on the network (usually the router or network switch). The DHCP server will assign the NAS an IP
address when it is turned on. This setting allows the NAS to be
easily installed and incorporated into any network environment.
Fixed IP Address — In some situations, it may be best to assign the
NAS a fixed IP address. This is most useful when you want to access
the NAS from a remote location, as most routers can only forward
traffic to a specific IP address. If you have the NAS configured as a
DHCP client, your IP address could change periodically. Having the
NAS configured with a fixed IP address means that the IP address
14
CONFIGURATION
will not change unless you reassign it.
The IP address you assign must follow two basic rules. First, it must
be within the same subnet of your current network. For example, if
your router’s IP address is 192.168.1.1, your subnet is more than likely
192.168.1.x (where x is a number from 2 to 254). Secondly, it can’t
already be in use by another computer or network device on the
network. Generally, NAS will only be accessible to computers on the
same subnet.
Public IP, External Gateway & External
Netmask — You can find your gateway’s
IP address and your netmask by
going to the command prompt and
running ipconfig.
In the above example, the 255.255.255.0 subnet mask indicates that the
first three numbers of the IP address (192.168.1) are not changeable in
this subnet. Had the subnet mask been 255.255.0.0, then you could
assign an IP of 192.168.x.x (where x is 0-254 and not being used by
any other device on the network).
System Management
Most of the system functions
can be controlled from this
menu.
CONFIGURATION
15
Administrator settings
This screen presents the basic administrator functions — easily modified
and managed by the administrator — in two panels: Configuration
Maintain and Administrator Management. In the Configuration Maintain
section, the administrator can back up current configuration settings to
a PC or restore the previous backup settings to the NAS. After resetting
the NAS, restore the backup settings and the system will change back
to the original settings instantly.
Download config — Just click “bk_config_xxxxxxxx.dat” to download
the current configuration settings to the PC. Choose the directory to
save the file to and click “Apply.”
Upload config — Click “Browse” to select the configuration settings you
want to restore, then click “Apply” to upload the file to write it into the
system. NOTE: Do not turn off the power before the writing is
completed: The NAS will reset automatically after the file has been
successfully written into the system.

soon as you click “Apply.” The NAS will then send out a test message
to the specified Administrator E-mail address (above). If you do not
receive this message, you will need to check the server settings.
Firmware Update
Updates and functionality can be added via this function. Check the
Web for the latest firmware if you are having any issues. In general, no
update should be needed unless it is recommended by technical support.
Note: Do not perform a firmware update over a wireless connection or
power the unit down during a firmware update. Any interruption during an
update will damage the device and require you to send it in for service.
Select “Browse” to locate
the updated firmware. If
the firmware file isn’t
correct, it won’t update
the firmware in the unit.
An Update Report screen
will display the update
percentage, indicating the status of the operation. Click “Restart” when
the upload is complete.
Updating Firmware from an External USB Hard (Disk) Drive
Besides updating the firmware on the Firmware Update screen, you can
use an external USB hard drive to complete the update. Just copy the
file onto the USB drive and place it on the server, and the server will
automatically update the firmware with the latest version.
18
CONFIGURATION
1.Create a “firmware” folder (case-sensitive) within the root folder of
the USB hard drive.
2.Copy the new firmware file to the “firmware” folder.
3.Connect the USB drive to the server’s USB port.
4.Once the server detects and finds the newest version of firmware, it
will emit three long beeps and start the update. The server will keep
beeping and the Packets LED will indicate the update is in progress.
When all the LEDs light up, the update is completed. The server will
then emit a long beep and restart.
Note: During the update, all network functions temporarily shut down.
time settings
The NAS’s built-in clock should be adjusted to the current local time to
ensure accurate time reporting
–5:00 Tampa
in the logs and file records.
Select your GMT time zone
from the drop-down menu,
then enter the date and time.
Click “Apply” to effect the
changes. You can find your
GMT time zone by doubleclicking the time display at
the bottom-right corner of
your desktop.
NTP Service
You can also activate the NTP
service to adjust the time
through the assigned NTP
server. Enter the desired NTP
server name or the default
NTP server, assign the
intervals for auto updates,
choose the status of
Daylight Saving, select
the Daylight Saving Region,
then click “Apply.”

20
CONFIGURATION
System Log
This information can help diagnose any network-related issues. Navigate
through the history with the buttons at the bottom of the chart. The
event logs can be cleared on the Administrator Settings screen.
User Management
The NAS provides a client/
server environment for users
to share files over the network.
File sharing works by authorizing the users or groups to access shared
folders by their username and password. When creating a new shared
folder, users and groups from the current list must be assigned. When
a user/group tries to access the folder, the system will check the list of
valid users for the shared folder. If the user/group is included in the list,
the user/group then has permission to access the shared folder.
users
For file sharing to work, users and/or groups need to be “allowed,” and
the accounts are created here. The admin and guest accounts are in
the system by default and cannot be removed. The admin account is
different from the one used to access the UI and can be modified.
CONFIGURATION
21
Highlight a username and click “Remove” or “Modify” to delete or change
user information.
Enter a username
and password. Note:
Windows Me users
should use the same
username as their
Windows login.

to assign the user(s) to the group. Highlight multiple users by holding
down the Shift key or Ctrl key while selecting users. Select users on
the left side and click on the right arrow button to remove them from
the group. When complete, click “Apply.”
NAS Management
Manage the main functions of
the shared storage device
from this menu.
RAID Initialization Wizard
RAID Initialization Wizard
The first time you use the NAS, you need to initialize the hard drive. The
wizard provides an easy way to do this.
By enabling SMART (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology),
the NAS will report when the hard drive is about to fail. Your hard drive
must support this feature.
CONFIGURATION
23
The HD Power Management should be enabled to prolong the life of
the hard drive. When there is no activity for the set time period, the
hard drive will power down to conserve power, save wear and tear, and
prevent the unit from building up unnecessary heat. When a user wants
to access the storage, the NAS will automatically wake up. Select the
RAID configuration you want to apply by clicking on its icon (at the bottom
of the Wizard screen above) to begin initialization process.
Click “OK” when the
warning message
displays to continue
the process. NOTE:
This will format your
hard disk/drive and all data inside will be lost.
24
CONFIGURATION
Enter the workgroup name,
description, initial share
folder name and language
you prefer. The workgroup
name should be the same
one that the computers
accessing the NAS
are on. (Windows
2000/XP users can
use a different
workgroup name.)
Click “Next.” You can
find your workgroup
name by rightclicking on My
Computer and
selecting (System)
Properties.
You must assign at least one user to this share folder. Highlight a user
on the list to the right, then select the permission you want that user to
have: Read/Write or Read Only. Click on the left arrow button to move
CONFIGURATION
25
the user to the Allowing User List. If you choose “Single” configuration,
you also need to decide which volume you will put your share folder in.
Highlight users on the left list and select the right arrow button to remove
them from the share or change their permissions. Click “Next” to continue.
The progress of the
initialization will be
displayed. Note: You
can’t see the page
correctly unless Java VM is installed. You can also view the progress (right) by returning to the main wizard screen.
Once the hard disk/drive is formatted, the
status will change to “Ready.” If you selected
“RAID 1” for configuration, you will also see
the progress of “Resyncing”
in the RAID Status field.
Hard Disk Status
When the Gigabit SATA NAS 2TB can’t detect a hard drive or detects
an error in SMART, this is indicated by “Not Active” in the Status column
and “Failed” in the SMART column (as shown in the screen image below).
If all hard disks are in the “Not Active” mode, the RAID and the HD
configurations will not be activated.
As long as any one of the hard disks is “Not Active” or is still in the
initialization process, you won’t be able to execute either RAID or HD
initialization. You will see a screen similar to the one shown in the RAID
Initialization Wizard section (above), but the device images will be gray,
indicating that the functions are not currently available (see image below).
26
CONFIGURATION
If only one hard disk/drive is detected by the NAS — as shown in the
three screen images below: Hard Disk Status, RAID Configuration and
Hard Disk(s) Availability — then only the “Single” configuration is operable
and the RAID configuration is unavailable. Disk size will be shown in the
Size column of Hard Disk(s) Availability.
CONFIGURATION
27
RAID 1 (Mirror)
After initializing to RAID 1 (Mirror), you should see a screen similar to
the one shown below, in which total size is the same as the original
hard disk size. If the sizes of Disk 1 and Disk 2 are different, then the
RAID 1 total size would automatically select the smaller one as its size.
However, it’s recommended that you use the same size when choosing
RAID 1. The device will automatically run resyncing after formatting,
and the RAID 1 configuration will now be operational.
When a new HD is installed to replace a broken one in RAID 1 (Mirror),
the NAS will set to Degraded mode. A “Recall” button displays in the
Status column of Volume Status (below), and only HDD-A is available.
Click “Recall” to add HDD-B in RAID 1. When the warning message
displays, click “OK” to continue the addition. Note: This will re-partition
and re-format the new hard disk/drive, and all data inside will be lost.
28
CONFIGURATION
Once this operation is complete, the NAS will start to run a recovery
process (as indicated in the screen image below). Because this can
take some time (the larger the capacity the longer the time required),
don't shut down, reboot the computer or make any changes to system
settings during the process (some settings will force the NAS to reboot);
otherwise, the recovery process will need to be run again after rebooting.
When any hard drive/disk is removed or broken and can’t be operated
in RAID 1, "Not Active" appears in the Status column. The system will
set to Degraded mode and Recall cannot be run.
RAID 0 (Stripe)
After initializing to RAID 0 (Stripe), total size is shown as the sum of
two hard disks. Remember, the total size of RAID 0 is always the sum
of Disk 1 and Disk 2.
Because RAID 0 has no fault tolerance function, it can’t be activated if
any connected hard disk/drive is broken (as indicated in the screen
image below).
CONFIGURATION
29
Single
After initializing to Single, you will see two hard disks activated in Volume
Status. The device will format all hard disks.
If the NAS detects a new hard disk that isn’t mounted, an “Initialize”
button displays in the Status column. You can choose either Single to
initialize all hard disks or click “Initialize” to initialize a designated one.
30
CONFIGURATION
USB hd information
Each of formatted partitions (FAT32, EXT2 and EXT3) on an attached
USB storage drive will be presented on the USB HD Info screen. The
naming convention for entries in the Mounting Path column is based on
the connecting port. For example, if the USB hard drive is attached
through Port A and there are two formatted primary partitions on the
disk, the NAS will create “USBHDA1” and “USBHDA2” mounting paths
to represent each partition space.
advanced
All the file protocol settings are presented in this submenu. Disable any
protocols not in use by the computers on the network to increase
performance. Most users will not need to change any of the settings.
Remember to click “Apply” after making any changes.
Make any desired changes
in the “Workgroup Name”
or “Computer Description”
fields here. NOTE: The
workgroup name should be
the same for all computers
sharing files.
Enable “Apple File Sharing”
for compatibility with older
Macs (systems earlier than
OS X).
CONFIGURATION
31
Enable “FTP Server” to allow
remote and local FTP file
access. Change the default
FTP Port value (set at 21)
for added security or compatibility. Note: If you change the default port,
users must manually enter the new port number when trying to access
the FTP server. (Refer to the FTP Server section later in this manual.)
Linux users need to create NFS mappings in order to connect to the NAS.
Enable “Network File System” and click “Add” to create the mapping.
On the subsequent NFS Mapping screen (below), enter settings in the
“Remote UID,” “Remote IP” and “Mapping User” fields. Once complete,
mount the share on the Linux machine. A typical mount command line:
# mount <IP address>:/<share folder> /<local directory>
file sharing
For file sharing, you first need to create users and groups. Then you can
create private and public folders to organize the data on the NAS. By
managing which users have access to the shared folders, or “shares,”
users can only access information they are allowed to. This access is
the same whether they are accessing the share from the local network
or through the Internet via the FTP.
32
CONFIGURATION
Assign users by highlighting the entry, selecting the desired file permission
and clicking the left or right arrow button to move the entry to or from
the “Allowing User List” or “Denying User List” fields. Click “Apply.”
On the Shared Folders Management screen, click “Add” to create a
new shared folder. On the Share Access Setting screen, enter a share
folder name. If you’ve chosen a single-type configuration, you also need
to select which volume you will put your share folder in.
Highlight the share folder and click “Remove” or “Modify” to delete or
edit the shared folder properties.
USB Storage Sharing
As mentioned above in USB HD Information, each partition of an attached
USB storage device will be represented as a separate shared folder.
For example, if a USB storage device is connected to the HDD-A port
and it has two partitions, the NAS will automatically create USBHDA1
and USBHDA2. Assigned guests have read/write permission by default.
CONFIGURATION
33
file sharing
The Gigabit SATA NAS 2TB is equipped with an HTTP Web server. It
allows you to put HTML files in the shared “WWW” folder on the NAS
and access them with your Web browser. NOTE: The Web server does
not support dynamic Web pages; e.g., PHP, ASP and MySQL are not
supported.
WWW Server — Enable or disable the Web server.
WWW Server Port Number — Enter the TCP/IP port the service should
be running on. By default, this value is set to 8080, which means you
need to enter the address <http://nas2000:8080> in your Web
browser’s address bar in order to view the files. If you change the
value to 9000, then the address would be <http://nas2000:9000>. Be
careful to not use Port 80, as this is the standard Web administration
port. Once the Web server is enabled, you can see a new shared
folder named “www” in Shared Folders Management. This is where
you need to place the files you want to access with your Web browser.
P2P Settings
Using the P2P Client function,
users can set the NAS to
download BitTorrent (BT) files automatically (without turning the PC on)
and place them in the assigned NAS share folder after downloads are
completed.
BitTorrent Client — Select “Enable” or “Disable” to start/stop the P2P
Client function.
Download Folder — Enter a directory name for placing any completed
downloads and the folder will be shared at the same time. Users can
34
CONFIGURATION
modify the access authority on the Share Access Setting screen in
NAS Management / File Sharing.
Maximum Active Torrents — Enter the number of items you want to be
able to be activated at the same time (up to 10).
Seed Options — Select “Infinitely” to upload continuously; select “Until
“share for _ minutes” and uploading won’t be allowed after the
designated number of minutes.
Click “Apply” to initiate the new settings.
Managing BitTorrent (BT) Files

CONFIGURATION
ftp server
If you want to access files stored on your NAS from a remote location,
using the device’s built-in FTP server is the easiest way to do so. A
typical setup:
Work <——> PC <——> Internet <——> DSL / Modem <——> Router <——> NAS
First, a static IP and/or a DNS name is required. You can also set up a
DDNS account if you are using a dynamic IP (your DSL IP changes all
the time). Your router must have this feature; otherwise, you may have
to run client software on a PC that is running on the network. You must
set your router to forward Port 21 to your NAS’s fixed IP address. For
details, refer to the DDNS and port forwarding / virtual server sections
in your router manual.
Next, enable the FTP server on the NAS. You can change the default
FTP port on the same configuration screen. This is useful for making
your FTP server less visible to users you don’t want to grant access.
Some networks also block the standard Port 21 and may require you
to change to a different port. Note: If you change the default Port 21,
you will need to enter the port number every time you access the FTP
server. Make sure to have users and passwords assigned to all your shared
folders. If you want to allow anyone access, just assign the “guest”
account to that folder. FTP users can then log on with an anonymous
account to that folder. Note: Users will be able see the names of all
the other shared folders, but will not be able to access them without a
username and password. To completely disable anonymous access
(must have a user account on the NAS to see folders), make sure you
don’t have the “guest” account assigned to any shared folder.
Now, from the remote location, enter into a browser (or FTP application)
ftp://<DDNS Name> and it will take you to your NAS unit. If you can’t
see anything on your browser, make sure you have the “View FTP
Folders” option turned on in your browser settings. You may also have
to go to the File / Login As screen. Use a valid username and password
for the NAS.

windows usb printer server
Standard USB 1.1 and 2.0 printers can easily be shared among Windows
users on the network with the built-in USB printer server. Note: Some
or all functions of multi-function printers may not work, depending on
the driver support by the respective printer manufacturers. Make sure
the hard disk has been initialized. (The status column on the Hard Disk
Status screen should display “Ready.”)
Connect a USB printer to
the USB port on the NAS
and turn it on. Locate the
NAS in My Network Places
and select it by doubleclicking the icon. When
prompted, enter a valid
username and password.
You’ll see the printer port
next to the shares for the
device. Double-click the
PortA printer icon and follow
the instructions to install the
printer driver at the local
station. Note: You may
need to select “Have Disk”
and insert your printer’s driver CD during the installation process.
Once the driver installation is completed, you should be able to select
the printer from the printer list in any Windows application. You can
manage the printer the same way you would any other networked printer
under Windows.

WINDOWS USB PRINTER SERVER
upnp setting
upnp media server
Your networked media receiver needs to be incorporating the UPnP
media receiver standard. (Check with the manufacturer of your networked
media player to confirm, if necessary.) UPnP media receivers using the
UPnP media receiver standard will be able to view and play media files
located in the UPnP Media shared folder when this feature is enabled.
You can enable the media server function in the Basic Settings menu.
A new share folder called “UPnPMedia” will be created with
the guest user assigned to it. You should change the user
access and security (located in File Sharing) to your current
network setup. Copy the media files that you want the
media receivers to see into this share. You can create
folders within the share to organize the media files.
itunes media server
As with the UPnP Media Server, you can use iTunes to play media files
simply by enabling the option. After enabling the option, you can see
the iTunes_Media folder from Network Neighbor on the PC. Copy media
files you want to this share folder; the iTunes player will then find and
play them all. If the name is “GLXXXX,” you’ll find “GLXXXX” on the
left side of the menu panel after
opening the iTunes player. Click it
to see all shared media files inside.

pinging
Testing your network connection in various situations is simple to do.
From a command
prompt, type in:
ping <IP address> or
ping <network name>.
If there are replies, then
there is a connection
running between the
two machines. By
pinging the device
name, you also get
the IP address of that
device.
searching the Network for the NAS
If you are unable to locate the NAS in Network Neighborhood or My
Network Places, you
can search for it. Click
“Search” in My Network
Places, then enter the
name of the NAS (or the
fixed IP address, if it’s
configured that way)
and click “Search Now.”
