Hi,
I have just purchased a network camera, D-Link DCS-2121, which I would like to record to my Netgear ReadyNAS DUO, NAS-drive. However I am too much of a beginner in this field, so when the D-Link web config page asks me to enter the "Samba network drive" I do not understand what to enter in the Server- and Shared Folder box! Se enclosed screen dump! There are no examples in the manual which explains what to enter and what Samba is!

OK, and what will this mean in my case? That is, I am bit unclear about how that relates to the services/file protocolls running on Netgear ReadyNAS that I have? Is Samba part of one or more of the file protocols that I listed above?

Thanks! So, CIFS should be OK then. I will try with this on and come back!
