B

When there is IP address you wish to use :

Select ‘manual IP setting’ when you have received an assigned IP address from a network administrator, or there is an IP address you wish to use. And enter IP address, sub-net mask, standard gateway, DNS address as in the following.

-

IP address: enter IP address you wish to use

-

Sub-net mask: Enter a sub-net mask appropriate for a current network environment.

-

Default gateway address: It assigns a route to go outside

When there is no standard gateway present on the network, enter the IP address.

-

DNS server address(Primary): DNS server takes care of the conversion between domain name and IP address. If An adequate DNS is not set up, email,

DDNS and domain function cannot operate normally.

-

DNS server address(Secondary): enter the address of assistant DNS server.

If you wish to be assigned IP address automatically :

Select ‘Obtain an IP address automatically(DHCP)’ if you want to receive an assignment of IP address automatically. In case of a presence of DHCP server (or internet IP network sharing device) within the network, you can use this option. When you activate a

DHCP option, a connection with a web menu is disconnected. Therefore please check the new IP address through a NAS Detector program. Because DHCP actively renews its IP address on a regular basis, this may create an unintentional

IP address change. Hence you need to be careful use DHCP set-up.

※ If you set up an automatic assignment of IP address but there is no DHCP server within the network, you will receive an automatic assignment of a link local address such as 169.254.XXX.XXX . It is available when you directly connect PC with the network cable, and in this case IP address set-up of the PC should be selected as ‘Obtain an IP address automatically ’ as well.

2.DDNS (Dynamic DNS)

You are able to connect LG Network Storage with the domain name from the outside using

DDNS..(example : http://myname.lgnas.com , or ftp://myname.lgnas.com) In case of using a fixed IP, it is possible to connect to the server from the internet by remembering IP address.

However in a changing IP environment where IP changes at certain time, DDNS provides a convenient connection environment. It performs monitoring of a changing IP address realtime, and does mapping in domain name. Consequently it is not necessary to memorize IP address changing continuously, and you will have a fixed address.

A

Hard drive set-up

This chapter gives the information and explains the function of the data volume the user stores. In order for data to be saved on to LG Network

Storage, volume must be set up. If the volume is not configured, you cannot connect to the network drive nor use functions such as backing up using USB or an optical disk.

This product provides the following 5 volume configuration methods for the user’s requirement

- RAID 0(Stripping)

- RAID 1(Mirroring) for important data

- linear(JBOD) volume

- RAID 1(Mirroring) + RAID 0(Stripping)

- Individual disks(disk1,disk2)

When you first purchase the product, the volume is already organized.

Therefore please use this menu only when you wish to change the volume organization set-up.

※ When organizing a volume, certain section of the hard disk is assigned as a system section of LG Network Storage. Consequently a capacity of the volume after the volume organization appears smaller than the capacity of the hard disk.

1. Volume format

To configure the volume, follow the below procedures. Configuration of the volume will remove all existing user’s data in the hard disk and will not be recovered.

※ In the process of volume configuration, the web menu and the buttons in the front will not be available.

Incremental back-up and Full back-up

LG Network Storage supports two types namely, incremental back-up and full backup for the back-up of mobile storage device. For the location in which mobile storage device is backed up, there are user assigned folder and last backup folder.

- Incremental : All of the data of the assigned mobile storage device are backed up in the Last Backup folder. In the folder user assigned, only added contents are backed up when compared to the last backup folder previously backed up.

- Full : It performs back-up for the whole original file. Unlike incremental back-up, full back-up contains the whole back-up contents in the folder user assigned..(It does not save separately in the Last Backup folder)

Volume Construction & RAID Configuration

This section describes volume configuration and supported RAID level.

1. Single Disk (None) volumes

The volume can be configured to each Disk without configuring the RAID. This issimilar to methods with general PCs that use Disks.

If the Disk is damaged, the damaged Disk data may be lost.

2. Mirroring volumes

Data can be exactly replicated to the Disk through this technique. If one Disk becomes damaged in the volume, data can be efficiently transferred, saved and backed up to another configured Disk. The volume’s storage capacity is equal to that of the smallest

Disk in the RAID1, as the data is reproduced from Disk to Disk. The data backup is a priority during RAID1.

The saving of important data is recommended.

Volume Construction & RAID Configuration

3. RAID0 striping volume

The Disks are configured in parallel so that they are all being used at once to store data, as if they were one Disk in summation. Because the data is saved to each Disk in parallel, many files of low capacity are read simultaneously but with superior efficiency.

Many low capacity files are read because multiple blocks of data are stored to each

Disk, though the performance is excellent at this time. In order to secure data stored,

Information is not read when at least one Disk is damaged. Subsequently, if the Disk is damaged, the saved data in the volume will be lost.

The storage capacity of the volume as a whole is the sum of the capacities of all of the

Disks.

This technique must not be used for the saving of important data, but rather for fast data access and for maintenance of the security of its volume capacity.

4. JBOD Linear volume

The Disks are configured in series so that they are all being used at once to store data, as if they were one Disk in summation. The volume’s storage capacity can be maximized, as the data is stored to the Disks in sequence. Data must not be written in the event of a damaged Disk to safeguard saving capacity. In this way, if a Disk is damaged, saved date in the volume will be lost. The storage capacity of the volume as a whole is the sum of the capacities of all of the Disks. To maximize the safeguard of capacity of the volume, saving of important data is not recommended.
