    Hi

    im a noob in the world of nas just purchased a synology ds211j

    I have found out its pretty poor for sabnzbd due to the cpu power it never hits my full speed for downloading so i am just going to use it to move the files for now and store them

    However i am a bit stumped by shares and privileges.

    Is there a better way of mapping the drives than the way i am doing - within windows mapping the shared folders and creating a drive to them?
    ?
    I have seen something called scusi or iscsi i think it is?
    //
    Would that be better for what i am doing now?

    Basically iSCSI makes your NAS appear as a local hard drive to Windows and it will be treated as such with the NAS no longer available to other computers, the only benefits you would see are increased transfer speeds and the windows index/search could be used on such drives.

    To make any priviliges stuff go away with existing shares do this;
    * log in to DSM go to control panel
    * go to user, select guest and click edit and remove tick box on disable this account
    * now go to shared folder
    * select a root folder and click on privileges -> privileges setup
    * under local users tick read/write for admin and guest
    * click drop down box and select local groups then tick box for read/write for admin & guest (if present).
    * repeat for all root shared folders.

    That will remove any privileges in the way and allow any user on the local network to edit the content of the folders. SMB/Samba capable media players as well will not ask for any user/pass either.
