Nas400 Edge 10 (FTP server)
Posted on 2008-10-29
I recently bought an Edge 10 NAS storage unit. The box comes with a FTP server build in, which i though was pretty neat for the price. I bought this initially as we were running low on storage space on the Server and i wanted to experiment with Raid 5 - 3 disk setup.
Anyway some of our staff occasionally work all over the world and have recently been enquiring about accessing there data in real time on the Windows 03 server. At present they syncronize there data tehn work offline, whilst away.
I thought of setting up the Nas FTP server and allowing the guys to access data this way, but i'm a little concerned about security issues doing this, as i don't really know that much on FTP.
My question is >> Is this ok providing encryption is enabled on the NAS and also the client laptops are using some sort of FTP client software with the same encryption level to access there data. And also how can i simplyfy the access method for the client - I mean none of them have a clue with FTP commands in I/E etc.
