[Bulk] [Bulk] Experience with accessible webinterfaces onNAS's

in case it hasn't been answered yet, or maybe I can add to it:
a NAS is a device that holds standard computer hard drives (generally from two to several) and usually has a power supply, a disk input output circuit and connected to that, a network interface card.

they make good small network backup drives, and also serve for multi computer accessible items without a particular computer needing to be on.

to stress the difference, I have a couple external hard drives connected to my computer, but unless my computer is turned on, no one can access them.

where as a NAS is a member of a network, and generally is "always on" so any computer can access the condense stored on it, at any time.

they are also great for games, music, and video storage since they can be and many are multi drive units so quite large, and both you and someone else can access a file and play it from any computer on the network.

hope this gives you enough good info,

Then it may be one aspect of "cloud" computing?

Out of curiosity, I looked up "NAS" on google. It means network attached
storage. Synology sells NAS systems.

That doesn't answer the query, but maybe it will enable someone else to give
advice.

Hi everyone,

I have a very frustrating problem with a NAS from the company called
Synology:
Unfortunately the webinterfaces where you for one thing could create new
users et cetera is not accessible for JAWS-users. Synology told me that it
is very hard for them to make a new webinterface, so they refer me to
contact my dealer and ask for refunding of my money.

Therefore I will ask on this list:
Have any person experience with a NAS where the webinterface is accessible
with JAWS?

Very thanks for the answer.

Regards,
Anders

Anders,

Have you tried accessing your Synology device from a command-line?

http://forum.synology.com/wiki/index.php/Enabling_the_Command_Line_Interface

Such a text-based interface often works well for network gear where the web based interface is not accessible. I've employed this strategy before with Cisco switches which use a lot of Java in their web-clients and also NetApp devices where the Windows management interface was inaccesible.

Although a text-interface isn't as "pretty" or "easy" as a web-interface might be to a sighted user, it's often just the thing you need to put you back on a level playing field with them.

The Synology gets such high marks when compared with other low-cost SMB NAS devices like Drobo that I think it's worth investing the time in the command line interface.
