Windows Active Directory (AD) and LDAP Directory Service
The Windows AD and LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol)
directory service features enable the IT administrator to retrieve user accounts
from Windows AD or LDAP-based directory server to the Turbo NAS, reducing time
and effort in account setup. Users can use the same login name and password to
access the Turbo NAS.
Shared Folder Aggregation
Access the shared folders of other servers on Microsoft
Networking through the "portal folder" on the Turbo NAS. This saves the time
and effort in logging in multiple servers one by one.
ISO File Archiving and Sharing
The Turbo NAS supports mounting ISO images of CD and DVD discs as
network shares for data archiving, storage, and sharing. This feature saves the
space for storing the physical discs, reduces the risk of data loss caused by
disc wearing and tearing, and enhances the efficiency of data sharing on
The Windows ACL (access control list) feature offers
sophisticated shared folder permission settings and thus simplifies IT
management for businesses with a large number of users. By enabling the Windows
ACL, basic permissions and 13 advanced permissions can be set up from the
Windows Explorer and synchronized with the permission settings of the Turbo
NAS. In addition, the same permissions apply to AFP, FTP, Web File Manager, and
Samba when Advanced Folder Permissions are enabled at the same time.
Advanced Folder Permissions
Advanced folder permissions allow users to configure
folder/subfolder access to the Turbo NAS. With this feature enabled, users can
manage the folder permissions from Microsoft Windows or the web-based management
interface of the Turbo NAS easily.
