Introduction Your SmartDisk Network Attached Storage (NAS) drive is a versatile external hard drive featuring high-performance storage and a choice of either high-speed USB 2.0 or Ethernet interface. Once your drive is connected properly to your network or computer, you will be able to use it as you would any hard drive for storing your data and for performing data back-up functions.

Before you begin to use the NAS drive there are a few important things to learn about your new product.

Controls, Connectors and Indicators First familiarize yourself with the control keys and the various connectors on the unit.

Front Panel Area The front panel contains only the ON/OFF Button, as illustrated below.

1. ON/OFF Button. Once the AC Adapter has been properly connected to the NAS drive and an AC outlet, you can press the ON/OFF button to power on the drive. The button’s green LED will come on to indicate the power-on state. To turn off the drive, press the ON/OFF button again. The LED will flash for about 15 seconds while the drive’s internal software shuts down in an orderly fashion. The LED will then turn off to indicate that the drive is now fully turned off.

Rear Panel Area Along the rear panel you will find the interface connectors and a recessed micro-switch that is used for reset functions. Refer to the figure below.

About the Hard Disk The NAS drive internal hard disk comes pre-formatted in three partitions. The largest partition is pre-formatted in the FAT32 format and is available for your data storage through either a USB or Ethernet connection. The other two partitions are in Linux EXT2 format and are used by the NAS drive’s internal software for supporting the various networking features of the product.

Note: Capacity dependent on model. Your operating system may report capacity as fewer gigabytes. 1 GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes.

Your product’s hard drive is a complex electronic storage system and should be handled with care, as you might treat a sensitive portable computer or other state-ofthe-art consumer electronics product. Do not subject it to shock, high temperatures, or strong magnetic fields.

–  –  –

Locating NAS Drive on Your Desk Place the NAS drive on a sturdy desk or table that is free from clutter that could block airflow around the unit. The drive is designed to lie flat on its rubber feet, or may stand upright using the included stand. In either orientation take care not to block any air vents. If using the upright orientation, install so that the ON/OFF button is at the top.

Which Interface: USB or Ethernet?

In order to install and use your NAS drive, you need to decide which interface is better for you. With the flexibility of the NAS drive, you can always change the interface you want to use later, depending on your application or computer environment. However, never attempt to connect to both USB-B and Ethernet at the same time.

Caution: Do not connect to both USB-B and Ethernet connections at the same time.

If you do not have LAN setup, or you primarily want to provide additional storage to a single computer, then you should consider USB as your interface choice. Please refer to the next section to learn how to install and use your NAS drive using USB.

If your PC is connected to a LAN over Ethernet (either wired or wireless), and you primarily want to provide shared storage amongst two or more computers on the LAN, then you should consider Ethernet as your interface choice. The figure below provides one example of a LAN configuration.

As a cautionary note, please be aware that data stored through an Ethernet connection is stored in the same FAT32 partition that is accessible through a USB-B connection. This is very convenient if you want to temporarily move your network drive to another PC that is not connected to the LAN and you still want to read data stored on the drive.

Since most computers have a USB port available, you can connect your drive using USB-B and have access to your previously stored data.

On the other hand, if you have private information that you have stored using the password protection features within the NAS environment, you may want to take special precautions to protect this data from view during USB-B connection.

For details about user passwords and other network features, please jump ahead to the section entitled Connecting NAS drive Using Ethernet to learn how to install and operate your NAS drive using Ethernet.

Connecting NAS drive Using USB Connecting your NAS drive to a USB host, such as a PC or Mac, is extremely simple.

Follow the steps below.

Note: If your computer is running Windows 98 Second Edition, you will need some additional software that you can download from the SmartDisk web site. Refer to the Getting Help section.

1. Connect the included AC Adapter to the NAS drive, and then to a wall outlet using the included power cord.

2. Next press the ON/OFF button on the front of the NAS drive.

3. Finally, connect the included USB cable from the USB-B port on the NAS drive to an available USB port on your computer.

4. The NAS drive will mount automatically, and a new icon will appear in My Computer (Windows) or a new icon will appear on the desktop (Mac).

Note: If you are using a USB 1.1 port on your Windows computer, the following cautionary note may appear on your display: Hi-Speed USB Device plugged into non-Hi-Speed USB hub. This does not indicate a problem because the NAS drive is compatible with both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 ports. Simply close the message and proceed. However, in this case the NAS drive will operate only at USB 1.1 speeds.

Storing and Transferring Data via USB

Once your drive is connected to a computer via USB-B, it can be accessed and used like any other removable disk. You can drag files to your unit’s icon to copy them, navigate to your unit in Open or Save dialog boxes, or delete files stored on your unit.

For information on copying, opening, or deleting files, consult your computer’s documentation.

Disconnecting NAS drive from a PC or Mac Host

While connected using the USB-B interface, your NAS drive is hot-swappable. It can be connected and disconnected without restarting your computer. To disconnect your drive at any time, perform the following steps. You can also disconnect your hard drive at any time while your computer is powered off.

Note: Please be careful to follow the correct procedure when disconnecting your unit. Simply unplugging the unit without first following the instructions below may result in damage to your unit and/or loss of data.

For Windows Users:

1. If you have files located on your NAS drive open in any applications, close them.

2. Click the Unplug or Eject Hardware button in the System Tray.

3. Select your NAS drive from the menu that appears.

4. After a moment, Windows will display a message that your hardware can be safely removed.

For Mac OS Users:

1. If you have files located on your NAS drive open in any applications, close them.

2. Locate the icon for your NAS drive on the desktop, and drag it to the trash.

Connecting NAS Drive Using Ethernet Installing the NAS drive using Ethernet requires that you have an available Ethernet port on a router or switch.

Before attempting to establish a connection to the network it would be useful first to review some background information about how the NAS drive handles data over the network. Basic to this understanding are the fundamental concepts of user accounts and shared folders.

About NAS Drive User Accounts

The NAS drive keeps track of data stored by its network users by managing the data’s destination folder (also referred to herein as a “shared folder” or simply a “share”).

Furthermore, the NAS drive must keep track of who may read from, and write to, each folder. It does this by setting up user accounts and groups. A group is a collection of specific user accounts. When you assign access privileges to a new share you have the option of either making assignments for individual user accounts, or for an entire group of users at once by referring to the group’s name.

The default factory settings provide for two pre-defined user accounts, each with their

own unique properties. These user accounts are:

–  –  –

Each of these two user accounts has an associated pre-defined folder. The name of the folder is the same as its associated user account. The name “guest-share” also happens to be pre-defined as a group name. Additionally, there is a pre-defined folder called “public” that initially is not associated with any user account. These properties are summarized in the table below.

–  –  –

Here are other initial properties of these pre-defined groups, accounts, and shares:

• The group @guest-share contains two members, which are user “admin” and user “guest-share”.

• Only user “admin” can access the share “public”.

• The folder “guest-share” is a private folder for user “guest-share”. This means only user “guest-share” can access this folder.

• The folder “admin” is a private folder for user “admin”. This means only user “admin” can access this folder.

By using the web-based administration tool, you can modify these initial properties.

Before can you can begin storing data (other than as user “admin” or as user “guestshare”), you must use the web-based administration tool to setup a new user account that defines your User Name and Password. Furthermore, you have the option to define other properties for your user account. For example, each user can optionally be given their own private folder, which is automatically assigned the same name as that user’s User Name. A user can also be given read-only-privileges, or read/write-privileges, to other folders on the drive.

Connecting the NAS Drive to Your LAN

Now that you have some understanding of user accounts, you are ready to connect your NAS drive to the LAN. Refer to the illustration below and follow these steps.

1. Ensure that your LAN equipment is powered on and that the LAN is operating properly.

2. We recommended that you follow the directions of your LAN equipment to enable a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. This may be referenced in your equipment’s documentation as “Assign IP addresses automatically”.

3. Since you will administer the NAS drive settings using a web browser on your PC or Mac, ensure that this PC or Mac is powered on and connected to the LAN.

4. Connect the included Ethernet cable from the Ethernet port on the NAS drive to an Ethernet switch (100 Base-T), a wired or wireless router, or a wireless access point.

5. Connect the included AC Adapter to the NAS drive, and then to a wall outlet.

–  –  –

Web-Based Administration Tool The web-based administration tool is used to modify all internal settings of your NAS drive. It is accessed using your computer’s web browser (such as Internet Explorer or Netscape). To access the administration tool, your PC or Mac should be on the same subnet as the NAS drive.

Administration Login

In most cases you need only to enter the default hostname (i.e., “//sohonas” for Windows, or “//sohonas.local” for Bonjour) in your browser’s address window to access the administration tool. If for some reason the default hostname was not assigned to the NAS drive’s IP address during auto-configuration, then you can alternatively enter the NAS drive’s IP address into the browser’s address window.
