How to enable SMB protocol in the PX4-400d?

2019-11-10, 12:17 PM

I do not see how to enable or disable SMB protocol.

Can someone tell me how?

I'm searching for the fastest protocol to transfer files between PC /NAS and NAS/NAS.

Any help would be much appreciated.

There is nothing that needs to be done to enable it. 

 

Please take a look at the user guide.

FTP is faster than SMB.

 

You could try that.

 

Filezilla is a great free client.

That is exactly what I wanted to know. How do I differentiate between FTP and SMB?

I mean how do I know which protocol Im using?

Ok so your question is not actually about the NAS itself, but about the Networking topic in general.

 

Assuming you're using Windows, when you use windows explorer and the "drag and drop" feature over your NAS shares, that will be done using SMB.

 

In order to use FTP, you will need to:

 

1- in the windows explorer path field, connect by using a command starting with "ftp://" 

 

2 - Using a dedicated FTP program, such as Filezilla (freeware).

 

If you google around, you will find a lot of information on all of this networking stuff.

 

Note: For any of this to work with your NAS, you will need to have enable AND configured both Windows Share (SMB/CIFS) and FTP protocols in your NAS settings.
