IP Setting

By default, the IP Setting is set to Automatic IP. This is the recommended setting and will allow the network drive to obtain its IP address automatically. If you prefer setting it manually, select the Static IP option, enter your own values and click Apply to confirm the new settings.

Setting it manually is useful when you need to have a static IP address in order to mount the network drive or set up port forwarding. To find out the correct settings for a static IP setup, refer to your network router settings or ask your system administrator.


If you are using DSL or a cable modem to connect to the Internet and your network hub, switch or router does not dial-up automatically, enter the PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet) account information you have received from your provider here and all local users can share one PPPoE connection to access the Internet.

Term Meaning
Status Displays the PPPoE connection status.
Service Name This is an ISP name or a class of service on the PPPoE server.
User Name Enter your user name provided by your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Password Enter your password provided by your ISP (Internet Service Provider)
Service On Demand The PPP daemon will ONLY connect to your ISP on demand, when a LAN user attempts to send data to the Internet. When there is no data traffic, it will close the connection to the ISP.


DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name Service) allows you to create an easy-to-remember domain name in order to access your network drive remotely. It points to your network drive even when your Internet connection has a dynamic IP address and there is no need to remember an IP address.

  1. Enable the DDNS function.

  2. Select one of the available service providers from the drop-down list.

  3. For DYNDNS go to

  4. Create a free account with the service provider and register your preferred name.

  5. Enter the host name, user name and password into the corresponding fields.

  6. Click Apply.

  7. The network drive will connect to your DDNS account and update its IP address whenever it changes.

  8. To establish remote access to your network drive when it is connected to a network router or switch, you need to configure port forwarding (e.g. Web UI port 8000 or WebDAV port 8080). For more info about how to set up port forwarding on your router, see

  9. You are now ready to enter your newly registered domain name in the web browser and access your network drive remotely.

Remote login is already enabled and setup by default. Go to, enter the MAC address (12 digits, all in one word). No further configurations are needed.
The DDNS service for this NAS was designed to be used with a PPPoE connection. If your NAS is behind a network router and not connected directly to the external IP, this function will not work. Instead, please use our web portal at for remote login.

Portal Service

This service is required for remote logins to the web interface and for remote file access via WebDAV. The Host Name displays the server name for remote login. When the portal service is enabled and running, the status shows OK, otherwise it shows None.

Do not disable the portal service if you want to login to your network drive via the web portal at If you only use the device on the local area network, we recommend to disable the portal service for security reasons.

UPnP Port Mapping

This service automatically sets up port forwarding on your network router. Not all network routers support this function and some might not even have UPnP. If that is the case in your network, please set up port forwarding manually. To do so, login to your router and find the setting for “port forwarding”. For more details on how to use port forwarding, please refer to

Assuming that you are using the default port numbers, for the web interface, set up a redirect for TCP traffic from WAN port 8000 to LAN port 8000. For file access via WebDAV, set up a redirect for TCP traffic from WAN port 8080 to LAN port 80.

Because you have to redirect the network traffic to a certain IP address (the internal IP of your NAS), it's best if you set a fixed IP address for your NAS. Otherwise, it might change the next time you restart your router or your NAS and the port forwarding will not work anymore.

Port Numbers

By default, the administration port is set to 8000 and the WebDAV port is set to 8080. If you have more than one network drive installed in the same local network or if you run into conflicts with other network devices, change the port number to a different number and click Apply to save the settings.

Remember to change the port forwarding if you make any changes to the port numbers here.
For Windows XP users to mount the network drive, the port number for WebDAV has to be set to port 80. Make sure to set up port forwarding accordingly.
