Let's take a walk through the new web GUI and take a look at all the settings and features available in the NAS 3.0:
When you first launch the NAS 3.0 you'll be presented with the status page. This page gives you some basic information on the device, network and storage.
Next is the administration page, this is where the main admin account is setup as well as the device identification and workgroup.
The time setting page allows you to manually set the time, or have the NAS 3.0 sync with an internet time server. Three pre-set time servers are included, or you can manually enter your own.
The LAN config page is where the networking setup is done on the NAS 3.0. Here you can set automatic or manual IP configuration, view the MAC address, setup the DHCP server and setup the PPPoE client. Two items of note here are the DHCP server and the PPPoE client. The DHCP server means you can use the NAS 3.0 directly connected to your PC, or have it do IP address assignment on your network. The PPPoE client means that the NAS 3.0 can be connected directly to a modem to be a standalone server on a DSL line. This way the NAS 3.0 would use your external IP and require no extra firewall or router configuration to access any of it's services from anywhere in the world.
The maintenance page allows for firmware upgrades, lets you reboot the system, and has the option to restore system defaults. Addonics did have some firmware upgrades available for their earlier NAS products, so hopefully we'll see some new features come to the NAS 3.0 in the future too.
