Service Configuration Section

The last item of the main menu is called Service Configuration. It contains the settings of the main network services of the TS-S402 some of which work constantly while others can be turned off in the appropriate page of the Configuration menu. First goes the FTP Server page that offers rather scanty FTP server settings. You can only set bandwidth limits in both directions and change the FTP port number.

The iTunes server offers more settings, available on the iTunes Server page. You can specify a server name and music folder, set the time for updating the index, and protect server access with a password.

On the UPnP Server page you can choose a name for the integrated media server and specify folders that will be accessible by its clients.

You can specify your Dynamic DNS account settings on the corresponding page. The list of DDNS providers is short including only DynDNS and Noip.

The Download Center and BT Client pages are about automatic file downloading. BD Client is for torrents while Download Center is for HTTP and FTP. Both download managers offer just some basic functionality and cannot fully replace a download manager on your PC.

The NAS Printer page is where you set up a printer connected to the TS-S402.

This brief overview should have made it clear that the NAS’s capabilities rather limited. They are not wider than those of an average modern NAS. And even undemanding users won’t like that they can access only folders in the root directory on the TS-S402’s disk rather than any folder or that they cannot use FTP access for an external HDD connected to the NAS.
