NAS INSTRUCTIONS:

The NAS is configured to be able to be accessed from inside or outside the office. The instructions are the same for both.

  1. OPEN FIREFOX. IT MUST BE FIREFOX.

When you have successfully logged in, you will be redirected to a drive with a “share” folder. Double click this folder, and this will display the contents of the NAS. From here you can download and upload files. Please note that depending on your connection, files may take longer to upload at times. Also, there is no progress bar for downloads or uploads, so if you are uploading or downloading a file, make sure you wait until you receive the message confirming the upload or download.

TO UPLOAD MULTIPLE FILES TO THE NAS

To upload multiple files to the NAS, you must be in the office. You will need to use Firefox, and you will need to use a program called “FileZilla”. Click here to download the program. If you are downloading it for Mac, click the download button that says “All Platforms”.

Once FileZilla is done downloading, open it and you will see this screen.

Then press Quickconnect.

In the red box, that is the contents of the NAS. This is where you will be uploading.

Where the red arrow is pointing, this is YOUR computer directory. This is where you will find the folders and files that you want to upload to the NAS. Highlight the files you want to upload and right click. Then hit “upload”.

The files will upload one by one, but make sure to keep an eye at the bottom tab where it says “failed transfers”. Sometimes bigger files have an issue. If you do end up with any failed transfers, just select them, and right click and reupload.

When you’re done, just close FileZilla, and you’re done! Easy peezy!
