Questions about using NAS on Mac OS.

home share on OSX

Hi, I have found a bit of an issue with the home share on the QNAP. OSX likes to mount all shares under /Volume however I seem to get issues when multiple users on the same Mac all mount their home share. In theory I believe OSX should mount them as /Volume/home, /Volume/home1 etc and remember which account is using which. However when this happened on my iMac (OSX 10.8.5) using SMB the file access ...

Transfer to/from Mac: Very Slow. What is the best way?

Hi All,

have already a TS-459 Pro (on firmware 4.1.0) for a couple of years, running in RAID5. I have never had an acceptable transfer speed from and to the Mac.(macbook pro 2010 and imac 2009 on OSX 10.9.4)
Same thing is valid for showing files and directories of the QNAP in Finder.

I can run it via afp or smb but it takes ages to transfer big files. Now I try to transfer a ...

Cannot connect to my NAS via SAMBA

I'm running a QNAP 569L, and made a advanced system reset. First out worked out well but then I can't get any Samba connection to the NAS. If I try to mount a Network share (Finder, go to, connect to server smb://192.168.0.10...) I immediately get an Error that the server is not eventually not existent. If I try the same with the afp Protocoll all works fine. Can anybody ...

How do I connect to my NAS remotely?

On my mac laptop's desktop I have created a series of shortcuts/aliases which take me straight through to the files stored on my NAS. This means I can go to my video library and play a video with VLC without having to use any qnap interface. I hate using the Qnap software and just want the NAS to work like a big dumb drive rather than it building its role at every opportunity. How can ...

Will AFP use Active Directory permissions to control access?

Just curious if this will work. I have smb access to a share but not afp access using the same credentials.

Simple but not obvious question on SMB

I have a 419PII with the latest firmware installed and am about to upgrade my computers to OSX.9. Knowing that Apple is swathing to the use of SMB over AFP in 10.9, I have attempted to do so before upgrading my OS. AFP is disabled on my NAS under Network Services and I have enabled SNMP. I can connect to my NAS fin with my desktop hard wired into it, but my laptop does not ...

4.1 AFP shares won't mount in 10.9.4

AFP shares on a TS-419PII running 4.1.0 firmware won't mount on Macs running 10.9.4. You can browse for a share, log in, but once you do...spinning beach ball with eventual failure. One can still mount the shares via SMB, but that's not nearly as fast.

Anyone else experiencing this? Suggestions for fixes?

NFS folder permissions for AFP

I have a couple Mac computers in network
Some of them connecting to NAS with NFS for FCPX working
Other connecting with AFP for viewing video and copy some files
The problem is a folders created from NFS connected Mac's don't allow to write from AFP connected Mac's. Read-only permission
Very big problem. Is there any solutions.
Firmware of QNAP is up to date.
Thank.

P.S. Sorry for my English

How can I remove NAS from Mac OSX Finder sidebar?

Mac OS X 10.9.4
QNAP TS-879

On my Mac Finder Sidebar, I have two NAS icons: NAS-MYNAS and NAS-MYNAS (SMB), where "NAS-MYNAS" is my NAS' name. GetInfo shows NAS-MYNAS as a "PC", while NAS-MYNAS (SMB) shows as a "Mac". They also have different icons. I'll refer to these as PC and SMB for brevity.

PC is always connecting as "admin", which I don't want. SMB connects as an end user account, which I do want. ...
