The TS-421U and TS-420U also support cross-platform file sharing for Windows, Mac, and Linux/UNIX users, and provide a centralized storage solution. Additionally the Windows AD and LDAP directory service features enable IT administrators to retrieve user accounts from Windows AD or LDAP-based directory server and efficiently assign access rights. These capabilities are further expanded with support for Windows Access Control List (ACL) which offers sophisticated shared folder permission settings.
