Using the Drop Down Navigation Menu on the top of the page, below the NAS4Free logo, click “SYSTEM” then select “GENERAL”. On this page you can configure and maintain very important settings for your server.
Up to two DNS servers may be configured on this page. A reboot is not required when changing the DNS settings.
Username: This is the Username you will be required to enter when logging into the WebGUI.
*Changing the WebGUI Username will not modify the system root account Username.
Protocol: This is the method our browser and NAS4Free will use to communicate so you can access the WebGUI. Use the Drop Down Menu to change the protocol to HTTPS if you require a higher level of security when accessing the WebGUI.
Port: Allows you to change the default port for accessing the WebGUI.
You can change the WebGUI protocol from the default HTTP on port 80 to the alternate and more secure HTTPS on port 443. Either port (80 or 443 are configurable).
You must reboot NAS4Free when you change the WebGUI Protocol.
Certificate: If you use the HTTPS protocol, NAS4Free will automatically enter a default x.509 certificate for you. If you want to get your own certificate you can paste it here.
Private Key: If you use the HTTPS protocol, NAS4Free will automatically enter a default RSA private key for you. If you want to create your own private key you can paste it here.
Leaving this entry blank and will allow connection only from the subnet defined for the LAN interface. This is a sensible security precaution in most cases.
For connection from outside of this subnet, for instance to connect to the NAS4Free server from a VPN, the IP address of the client or the subnet used by the client should be entered here.
Language: Use the Drop Down Menu to select your preferred language for the WebGUI.
Time Zone: Use the Drop Down Menu to select your time zone.
System Time: Used to manually set the system date and time. You can enter it in the proper format or click the “CALENDAR” icon to do it graphically.
Enable NTP: Click the box if you want NAS4Free to update its date and time automatically via NTP.
NTP Time Server: NAS4Free uses pool.ntp.org by default but you can change this to any valid, nearby NTP server of your choice.
Time Update Interval: Set the number of minutes between time synchronizations.
Remember to click the “SAVE” button before navigating away from the page if you want your changes to take effect.
