The Applications group offers pages for activating all of the NAS’s multimedia-related services most of which have been mentioned at the beginning of this section.
The integrated UPnP server has flexible setup options, for example.
The settings of the email server, after you install it, appear in this group, too. The Mail Station page is, for example, for specifying the domain name from which email will be sent, turning on support for secure POP3 and IMAP, and enabling the IMAP client we have written about above.
The Backup group has been revised greatly in the new firmware.
The local backup and network backup options used to be in different pages, but now there is a single page for them. The other two pages are necessary for making a backup for the NAS’s system configuration and enabling the option of network copying.
External Devices Group
The pages of the External Devices group provide a list of supported devices that are connected to the DS209+.
You can unmount those devices there, too. You can also define which folder the data from the USB drive will be copied to on your pressing the C button on the front panel.
That’s actually all we wanted to tell you about in this section. Without doubt, the DS209+ comes with high-quality firmware, especially in version 2.1. This is in fact an example of good firmware for a network device.
