NAS setup couldn’t be easier. The included ASUSTOR control panel quickly finds your NAS on the network for quick setup. Once found, the application gives you some quick and useful information about your NAS.
The application then walks you through your initial configuration.
The initialization process will prompt you to either upload ADM or connect to ASUSTOR for the latest firmware available
After firmware has been applied, ADM presents two options. 1-Click Setup and Custom Setup. 1-Click Setup uses optimized settings in accordance with your computer settings and the installed hard drives. Personally, I always choose the Customer Setup.
The rest of the configuration is broken down into 5 steps.
- The first being Hostname and admin Password.
- The second is time & date
- Network configuration
- Storage Configuration
- Settings applied
The last 3 screens are for an ASUSTOR ID. This provides you with the ability to get technical support and download apps from the ASUSTOR App Central and is also required for the Cloud Connect Service.
