In order to use the Thecus N8800PRO with Open-E as a NAS server, access permissions have to be configured. You can create users and user groups directly on the server, or alternatively make the server a member of a Window domain or Active Directory server. For fine-tuning access to individual folders, you can use Windows access control lists (ACLs).
As you can see in above screen shots, quotas are not supported in this customized version of Open-E. If you need quotas, however, you have the option of upgrading to the full version of Open-E.
Creating Network Shares
The Web interface allows you to conveniently create Windows-based network shares.
