You'll need to firstly determine whether the NAS box supports iSCSI as not all of them do. Just look up the specs for the device on the manufacturer's website and you'll have your answer soon enough.

Once you've confirmed that the NAS supports iSCSI, you just need to start the Microsoft iSCSI Initiator Service, launch the iSCSI Initiator in Control Panel then connect to the NAS's IP address.

What model is the NAS and what version of Windows Server do you have? What do you plan on storing on the NAS as that will dictate the level of security required for iSCSI traffic.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. The model NAS that we have is the LaCie 4big Quadra USB 3.0. The physical server that we want to connect to it is running Windows Server 2008R2. All the information on this NAS will be things such as documents and programs.

That specific Lacie model doesn't support iSCSI so you'll need to look at another model.
