I've got a NAS with 2 ethernet ports. I have one connected to the router. I read that the second could be connected to double the speed of data to and from the NAS. I don't need to do that, as the speed from one port is adequate. I use the USB port for backup.
I'm interested in using the second port if I can. I just don't know enough to know what to use it for. I may find something to use it for I only I knew what is possible.
What can the second LAN port on a NAS be used for, other than link aggregation?
Thanks for your help.
Added: The NAS is a QNAP TS-251.
