The next group is called System and contains settings related to the NAS proper. It begins with the Network page where you can specify the parameters of the Ethernet port and change the network name of the DS209+.
The Language page is for choosing the language of the NAT’s web-interface, e-mail notifications and codepage for filenames.
VPN connection parameters are specified on the PPPoE page.
The system date and time of the NAS device are configured on the Time page. Parameters of the NTP protocol are specified here, too.
The way to notify the administrator about errors is specified on the Notification page. You enter the parameters of an external SMTP server and the recipient’s email here.
The power-saving mode of the DS209+ is configured on the Power page. Particularly, you can specify the idle period after which the HDDs will be shut down. DSM version 2.1 has added two new features: scheduled shutdown and fan speed control.
To restore the settings to their defaults and/or format the internal HDD you should go to the Restore Defaults page.
The Firmware Update page is where you can update the firmware and install patches that add to the functionality of the already installed firmware.
New in the latest version of its firmware, the DS209+ offers a package management service. Such packages enhance the NAS’s functionality. Particularly, an email server can be installed as a package.
