Note: This function may differ depending on the NAS model in use.

Here you can configure the server name, LAN and Wi-Fi settings. Other settings include IP address, DNS server and default gateway.

  • Server Name: An online name for your NAS.
  • Default Gateway: The default gateway that you wish to use.
  • DNS Server: Here you can set the DNS server that you wish to use. Should you choose to obtain your IP address via DHCP the system will automatically obtain the available DNS servers for you. If you choose to manually enter an IP address then you will have to manually enter a DNS server as well.
    Reminder: Using an invalid DNS server will affect some network related functions. (i.e., Download Center). If you are uncertain about how to proceed, please choose to obtain your IP address automatically.
  • DHCP Server Settings: You can configure the DHCP settings only if the IP address was configured manually.
    • Lease time (hr): Enter a value (1-720) to set the DHCP lease time (in hours) for IP addresses assigned to DHCP clients.
    • Primary/Secondary DNS: Enter the Primary/Secondary DNS address for DHCP clients.
    • Domain Name: Set the domain name for the DHCP server.
    • Subnet List: You can add subnets here.
    • DHCP Client List: Here you can check the list of DHCP clients and their network configurations (e.g. MAC address, IP address, hostname, and the amount of time left before the DHCP lease expires).
    • DHCP Reservations: If you want a client to always receive the same IP address during DHCP lease renewal, you can add the client to the DHCP reservation list.
  • Proxy: Here you can enable proxy server connections, allowing the NAS to connect to the internet via a proxy server.
    • Proxy Server: The address of the proxy server you wish to connect to. (Supports HTTP and HTTPS)
    • Port: The communications port of the proxy server.
    • Authentication: If the proxy server you are using requires authentication, you can enable it here and then enter your username and password.
  • PPPoE
    • If you are using DSL or a cable modem to connect to the Internet and your Internet service provider uses PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet), you can go to [Settings] [Network] [PPPoE] and enter your account information to allow the system to connect to the Internet without having to go through a router. If you wish to get more information about PPPoE, please contact your Internet service provider or network administrator.
  • VPN
    • Here you can let your ASUSTOR NAS become a VPN client, and via PPTP, OpenVPN or WireGuard, connect to a VPN server to access a virtual private network. ASUSTOR NAS supports the use of different connection settings files, allowing you to connect to the VPN server of your choice. The ASUSTOR VPN client currently supports PPTP and OpenVPN with WireGuard introduced in ADM 4.2.
  • Link Aggregation
    • Link aggregation (a.k.a. trunking, bonding or teaming) combines two or more network connections into one. To use link aggregation, your Ethernet cables must be connected to the same network switch and your network switch must support link aggregation.
