The Cheap way is to take any old Tower PC with at least 4 bays and 4 sata ports, put two ethernet ports in it and run (LInux) Samba for your file (NAS) services and iptables for your firewall. You will have full gigabit speeds to the inside interface of the box. You can run raid on your disks. You can even configure openvpn and/or run a webserver on the ...

Option b should exist from mikrotik default setup/config, option a should only exist if you did it your self. So passively, your nas is allowed to go out to the 'net (example to check ...

It revealed that, now that the array was force-reassembled, all but one of the drives had an array-status of AAAAAA. /dev/sde had its status stuck on AA.... (two active, four inactive) and that indicated some sort of anomaly. I reassembled the drives, without --force, omitting /dev/sde ...

By noticing that the disk space freed up on a 5-minute cycle, we were able to identify the problem. It's a behavior that may be unique to the file system we're using, the XFS file system. XFS allows you to specify a pre-allocated file size. We mounted the file-system with an allocsize=1G, given that this file system was built with large files in mind and ...

Any reason why you have to have a "combined" NAS + router? Just buy a switch and NAS separately and attach all nodes to the switch. What are you trying to accomplish?
