How to use Veritas Backup Exec to back up NAS (Buffalo)?

Hi,
I have Veritas Backup Exec 10d running in myDomain (Windows 2003 AD);
Buffalo LS-250GL running in myDomain too. I disable access control on the unit.
In Backup Exec, it can see Buffalo host and files and folders in it, but just can not select them to back up.

Q#1. Is is possible to use Backup Exec to back up NAS directly?
Q#2. Why Backup Exec can see it but can not choose it?

You can't select the whole thing because you have not (and cannot) deployed a remote agent on it. You have to enable backup of user shares and select individual shares and it should back them up, sometimes you have to create C$, admin$ shares with the same permissions that a windows fileserver would have.

Enable user shares is under tools-options-network

Yes, once I select tools-options-network and firewall-enable selection of user shares, then I am able to select the files and folders. It's great. Thanks a lot for your quick response. I will post a related question separately.
