Mounting QNAP vis USB in OSX

Does any one know if this is possible and how to do it?

I want to connect my macbook pro to the NAS via USB and have it mount in OSX as if it was a standard USB external drive.

Mac to NAS backup (not time machine)

I am trying to schedule a back up of certain folders on a macpro (10.7.5) to my NAS TS-431+.

When I enter the details in the FTP in the replication job window they seem to be correct.

Sharing an external usb disk on a Ts412

I've just purchased a used Ts412. This unit is far more complex than the horrible Iomega I had. However I have several problems.

The first is I have a usb disk I'd like to share...when I'm connecting with my smart TV the disk isn't showing. On my Mac I can see the disk in the file structure so I know it's mounted.

Is this something to do with DNLA settings?

On my old NAS ...

Does Time Machine work with multiple macs?

I can see it create two different bundles, but when one of my mac's start to backup consistently, the other stops backing up. Once I fix the one that was stopped, then the other one stops working. Almost as if only one user can be logged in at a time maybe? Is this expected behavior?

Extremely slow uploads to QNAP from OSX MBP


I have been moving my music and pictures from my Macbook Pro running OSX 10.10.3 to the QNAP TS-269L running firmware 4.1.4 upgraded to 3GB of RAM, and the uploads are going incredibly slow. Sometimes, with small single files under 500mb, I get close to 20MB/sec, but the larger the transfer, the slower it goes. I am currently moving photos, and now it seems like a random pace with even a 1.8GB folder getting ...

AFP and Timemachine issues


Recently my Timemachine backups have been playing up. It will work fine for a while and the AFP access on my NAS just seems to fall over. There is no connectivity issue between the 2 because smb carries on working fine. Usually I have to remove this disk in time machine, disable Timemachine, disable afp then reenable Timemachine to resolve the issue which is less than ideal! When I try to connect manually using ...

Multiple "myQnapNAS" instances :-/

this is, honestly, quite annoying:

on Mac OS, as every Mac user knows, "Finder/Go/Network" opens a window that shows every available network device
my Qnap shows multiple times: one for every available protocol: "myQnapNAS(AFP)", "myQnapNAS(SMB) plus, if I also enable windows networking, "ds" :-/

found I can control what shows there by enabling/disabling Bonjour for each given protocol. fine!
just... then I can only connect using the protocol for which Bonjour is enabled :-/

CIFS copying of files not working


I am on latest yosemite, and using a ts-879pro as a file server.
There is no such thing as jumo frames turned on, and I am on a wired network.

I have since a year, moved to use CIFS instead of AFP towards the NAS (since Apple no recommends that protocol instead of AFP).

But I have serious problems with copying from my mac to the nas. The other way around is seldom a ...

Can't open folder on Mac - greyed out


I recently upgraded the disks on my TS-219P and then copied over some large folders that were previously stored locally. The largest, containing mainly my Aperture library, is showing as greyed out in the Finder and I can't open or access it.

Permissions are all fine and I can access it through the File Station with no problems, it's just that the various Macs can't open the folder. What's a little odd is that ...
