I just bought a Javelin S4 NAS this morning, and I'm trying to figure out the best way to restrict access to a folder.
By default, it shows up in my Network Places:
I've created a 2nd user account through the web interface (called "mark") which seems to add another folder here. I set a username and password through the interface, but I can still freely open this folder on my computer; it didn't ask me for any credentials.
Reading online, I found out that it also supports Active Directory, which means I should be able to add some restrictions based on my Windows user account, right? Or does that just control how it shows up in the network?
By default, it was just part of "WORKGROUP" which I guess is why it shows up in my network like that?
Lastly, it seems to support iSCSI. Apparently I was supposed to allocate a certain amount of space for this when I initially set it up, but I went through the basic wizard and it chose everything for me. Anyway, it appears I do have some space left to create this "iSCSI drive" but I don't really know anything about that, or if that's what I need.
What I need is two-fold:
- I want to share some media on my home network which I can stream via UPnP/DLNA. It appears I can do this just by dropping the media in one of the video, picture, or music folders.
- I want a password-protected folder that only I can access, that I can easily copy files to and from on my windows machine (but not tied to my windows account so that I can log in from another machine if necessary)
Does anyone know how I can go about doing this?
