A DHCP server is not required. However, SimpleTech
strongly recommends using a DHCP server to assign IP
addresses to the devices on your network. Otherwise,
depending on how your network is configured, you may
have to manually setup the computers on your network to
talk to SimpleShare. For detailed information on using a
DHCP server, see DHCP Server Network Setup.

INSTALLING SIMPLESHARE SERVER
1 Connect the provided Ethernet cable to the Network
connector on SimpleShare’s rear panel. Connect the
other end of the cable to your switch, router or directly to
your computer.
2 Connect the low voltage connector on the AC power
adapter to SimpleShare’s DC-IN jack. Connect the
power plug on the other end of the adapter to a live
120/240V electrical outlet, surge protector or UPS
(uninterruptable power supply).
Only use the AC power adapter that came with SimpleShare.
Using any power adapter, other than the one provided by
SimpleTech, may damage SimpleShare and voids your
warranty. SimpleTech assumes no liability for damage
resulting from improper use.
3 Momentarily press the Power push button to power on
SimpleShare.
The only way to shut off power completely to SimpleShare is
to disconnect the power plugs from the power source. Make

SETTING UP SIMPLESHARE FOR THE FIRST TIME
Once the SimpleShare server is connected and powered on, you can begin using it to share files and data with other network
users immediately. However, if SimpleShare is installed on a complex network configuration that routes traffic to various network
segments (subnets) using gateways and routers, locating SimpleShare using its network name might be difficult without
assistance. In such cases, you can use NASFinder to locate your SimpleShare and perform basic configuration tasks like
renaming your SimpleShare, changing its administration username and password and mapping the shared folders on
SimpleShare to your computer.
1 Insert the NASFinder Quick Setup CD in the CD-ROM
drive on your computer. Depending on how your
computer is configured, NASFinder may launch
automatically. If NASFinder does not start automatically,
start it manually by clicking on the Start menu, and then
selecting the Run... option. In the Run dialog box, enter
x: nasfinder.exe (where x is the drive letter of the
CD-ROM drive), and then click OK .

BASIC DISK MANAGEMENT
SimpleShare’s is equipped with either an 160 MB or 250 MB internal IDE hard disk drive, depending on the model you purchased.
However, SimpleShare’s storage capacity can be easily increased by attaching an external disk drive. The disk space on
SimpleShare is divided into storage areas or “Disk Pools.” You can create multiple storage areas on a single drive or combine
multiple drives to create a single pool. Disk Management menu options allow you to manage SimpleShare disk drives and disk
pools. To create shares and store files on a SimpleShare drive one or more disk pools must exist on the drive. SimpleShare’s
internal disk drive is configured at the factory with a single disk pool named “SimplePool”, which is allocated the full capacity of
the drive. SimpleShare’s advanced disk management features provide:
•
Foreign disk support
•
Mirror pools
•
Striped pools
•
Spanning
SimpleShare’s multi-disk functions can be configured using any combination of internal and external USB drives. For example,
you can mirror the data on the internal disk onto an external USB drive or mirror the data on an external drive to a second external
drive. Except foreign disk support, the drives connected to SimpleShare must be “claimed.” Claiming a disk reformats the drive
for exclusive use by SimpleShare. Once a drive is claimed, it can only be read by SimpleShare. The claiming process destroys
all the data on the drive.

FOREIGN AND BLANK DISK MANAGEMENT
When a USB drive formatted with the FAT or NTFS file system is connected to SimpleShare recognizes the drive as a “Foreign
Disk,” and immediately makes it available to users on the network. The share name for foreign disks is set by SimpleShare, base
on the file system used on the disk. The files on foreign disks are not modified by SimpleShare in any way. If the disk is later
disconnected from the SimpleShare and attached to a Windows or Mac OS computer, it will still be readable by that computer.
The shares created by SimpleShare for foreign disks are referred to as “Foreign Shares.” An unformatted drive connected to
SimpleShare are recognized as “Blank Disk.” Before a Blank disk can be made available to network users, it has to be formatted
or claimed by SimpleShare.
SimpleShare’s foreign disk support function makes it easy to attach a USB disk formatted with FAT or NTFS and share its files
with other users on the network, with the following restrictions:
•
Disks formatted with NTFS are read-only
•
Foreign disks cannot be used for of mirroring
•
Foreign disks cannot be used for striping

CREATING A STRIPED POOL
The main reason for creating a striped pool is to increase performance. Two or more disks are required to create a striped pool.
Striped pools alternate (or interleave) the data accessed in the pool. They do not provide for multiple copies of data stored in a
pool and do not provide for protection from loss of data should a drive fail. In fact should a single drive that is part of a striped
pool fail all data in the pool is lost even though the remaining disk(s) are functional.

NETWORK MANAGEMENT
DHCP CLIENT NETWORK SETUP
DHCP client is the default IP addressing protocol set on SimpleShare. In this mode, SimpleShare receives its IP address and
subnet mask, along with other networking configuration information, from the DHCP server on the network. Since most home
gateways and routers use the DHCP protocol to assign IP addresses to the computers and other devices on the network, this is
the easiest way to manage IP addressing.
1 Click the Networking menu.
2 From the LAN Protocol list, choose DHCP Client.
3 To enable SimpleShare auto configuration, select
Enabled from the LAN IP Autoconfiguration list.
LAN IP Autoconfiguration makes it possible for SimpleShare
to configure itself on your IP network automatically, when a
DHCP server is not available. Autoconfiguration provides
“zero configuration” for SimpleShare by automatically
discovering devices on the network and assigning an IP
address to SimpleShare without user intervention.
4 Click

Managing SimpleShare
Network
94
DHCP SERVER NETWORK SETUP
The DHCP Server IP addressing option allows you to configure SimpleShare as the DHCP server on the network. In this mode,
computers and other network devices are automatically provided IP addresses and other network configuration information by
SimpleShare. Configuring SimpleShare as the network DHCP server may make it necessary to set some network and DHCP
parameters, manually.
Only choose the DHCP Server option if you are an
experienced network administrator. Do not configure
SimpleShare as a DHCP server if there is another DHCP
server on the network.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a TCP/IP
service protocol that offers dynamic leased configuration of
host IP addresses and distributes other configuration
parameters to eligible network clients. DHCP provides safe,
reliable, and simple TCP/IP network configuration, prevents
address conflicts, and helps conserve the use of client IP
addresses on the network. DHCP uses a client/server model
where the DHCP server maintains centralized management
of IP addresses that are used on the network.
DHCP-enabled clients can then request and obtain lease of
an IP address from a DHCP server as part of their network
boot process.

Unless specifically specified, SimpleShare Administrator sets
the following default network parameter values:

STATIC IP NETWORK SETUP
The Static LAN protocol option allows you to assign a fixed IP address to SimpleShare. Choosing this option provides
considerable flexibility, however, keep in mind that every computer on the network connecting to SimpleShare must also have
be configured with a static (fixed) IP address. To set the IP address for SimpleShare statically, complete the following steps:
1 Click the Networking menu.
2 From the LAN Protocol list, choose Static.
3 From the LAN IP Autoconfiguration list, choose
Disabled.
