Complete tutorial on setting up and using a Zyxel NSA320 NAS - video tutorial

Hi friends, in this video tutorial will show you how a NAS goes, I will show the settings and I'll explain a few things so that you can remove as much of your device does.
A few days ago I presented the Zyxel NAS NSA320If there we presented the device, today we enter the settings. Besides setting will tell you some secrets that you should know so you can transfer files at full speed.
First router is extremely important for a quick transfer, you need a router Gigabit speeds over 10 MBps. Precisely because many routers have the impression that the NAS can not transfer at high speed.
Router settings are just as important as hardware, for starters you can DMZ with IP that it gets NAS software from the router after you have convinced all goes well it is advisable to do port forwarding ports that you will use if you do not know port forwarding please follow this tutorial:
Trendnet router for port forwarding setup with Virtual Server and DMZ
or
TP-LINK TL-WR740N a wireless router super cheap and super good, and presentation settings
or
D-Link DIR router configuration 655 for Romtelecom, RDS, UPC, internet starter, 3G.
If you use routetul only on LAN you do not need to make too many settings in the router, however it is possible that some routers to block / filter traffic to make sure that does not happen it's better to disable firewall router temporarily until you sure everything is okay.
When it comes to networking everything has to be perfect set, make sure every setting and especially pay attention to this tutorial.
I could say more about this NAS But the coolest feature is the automatic download, you heard right, the nose can download files and torrents (and download and seed) which stores them internally without help from your PC .
About the functions of this NAS is hard to speak in one tutorial, that's because they really move, though I covered the most important settings and the rest remains to him in detail in another tutorial. In general remained multimedia services, web, ftp, etc. What's nose operation you've come. Also on another occasion and I will show you how to install applications.
I hope this tutorial will not bored, because it has no 40 minutes. If you resist without sleeping assure you that you will remain with useful information.

  2. Hi Cristi, how do you put an ex site on such a NAS: I want to open a site "www.xyz.ro" I give an ex. how do you put it on NAS? And if I don't have a NAS, how can I turn an older PC into a NAS? Thank you !! 🙂

  3. Thank you

  4. If I use a NAS to keep a website online, it will handle a greater number of visitors? If you test something or have any information, can you give me a number of simultaneous users that would unravel a NAS?

  5. ASUS:
    Hello Cristi, such as a NAS chicken on a website eg I want to open a site "www.xyz.ro" give an ex. As you put on the NAS? And if I can turn NAS as an older PC to NAS? Thank you !! :)

    Buy a domain and that domain laws for public IP, ie create a name server. If requested in the comments box and I'll do a tutorial about creating a nose from an older system.

  6. Moss:

    Depends on the number of visitors that have it usually sites do not keep your nose but you can do that in the beginning, to do some tests and to train.

    I don't know why you're so panicked when your HDD behaves normally. Do you have the notion of the terms "transfer rate"?
    That is, the minimum with which your HDD will read is 6. This does not mean that it will always read with that… rate = limit… test the limit not the current capacity of which it will work in everyday situations.
    Test maximum limits and minimum limits limit

    Cristi was a model, you another model. My colleague just mentioned that everything you controller, not all hard drives are identical, just for that Cristi decided to do the tutorial that tested hard dusk site, to see and I how can behave a hard disk and how can behave another. If you looked at the tutorial without running you would have seen that not only tested the Toshiba hard drive but a Seagate Barracuda who like you do not have a nice graphic, zigzag.

    The hard drive does not run alone in the air, it's about and what chipset using, how stable is the motherboard, source, how many hard drives are installed on the PC, if you drive on that test it has data on it if accessed by the operating system.
    There are many factors to be taken into account when doing a test and tag device.

    You can not draw a hasty conclusion, your hard drive may be good but the remaining components of pulling down. Judged in context.

    Hi Adrian, I long ago I had to get my head NAS, but I have a problem, I wish that NAS to access and work via the Internet, as I do this at home if dynamic IP (RDS)?

    Very simple, you use a dynamic domain, we have some tutorials about it. No matter how many times the IP changes, you will be left with the same subdomain, for example "" name.dyndns.com ""

  19. no longer free DynDNS, No-IP are weak, another method I?

    If you want comfort, you have to pay, not everything is free and if you still are free, have a limited or service is not as good as you would like as deh, it's free.

    Yes I specified has data on it, we have an entry level motherboard and SSD as you do not have a WinXP ruelaza on that drive. I made read-only test. Today I did another test and the results were different. Initially I thought I broke controller or very stupid, or old. But apparently it is not. http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/2682/hdtunetest2.png

  22. It would be interesting tutorial on how to do a NAS from an older system, I have a friend who said that if we succeed in his older NAS system we put him amundoi data.

    I recommend a router Asus RT-N66U or model RT-N56USoon going to take me and I one of these two.
    We increasingly more devices around the house connected to the net for a pleasant experience each of these devices you need high power routing, transceiver, advanced functions, filtering hardware and, if possible, and storage related to router, a kind of basement for data.

  28. if 2 bag 1Tb HDDs in RAID HDD 1 and breaks as RAID rebuild if I buy a new hard drive to replace it wicked? is automatic job or what?

    Not everything is as corrupt file. You will lose that information, why is it so hard to understand, it was all said and here a few times and you can find on other sites ,. If you want safety, you 0 Raid (zero), just as the company is proactive in working with important information. The disadvantage is that the speed decreases, because that information is written on both hdd-uri.Nu play, now and then raid0 1 raid, you have to lose, everything there (OS and data) method if you use real system or nose after the event., do this as a test, you need to back up information.

    Come as you have a little confused.
    Raid Mirroring = 1 or better safety data are stored on one and another, the same data as a backup as a real-time, useful space is halved.
    Raid 0 or Stripe = high speed, space is used in full, instead if one of the disks… breaks. Goodbye data.

    If you choose RAID1 safety, if you do not speed and inteteseaza too much data on the array RAID0 choose.

    • If I have two TB HDD and a 2 one of 600gb can do raid1 only 600gb and the rest to be used for data storage can it?

      • It's not possible. And even if you succeed, you go to a dead end, which, eventually, you will lose data.
        Disks in raid should be almost identical, if you want performance.
        Two drives with different capabilities or different speeds, will that host controller to lose time with error correction, and final raid speed will not satisfy.

    Cristi jab, jab as many radio transmitters around the house, take as many mobile phones and stay closer to them. You will see later effects! As the emission of higher power and longer stay near them greater the electromagnetic radiation it receives the body (just know it very well). It is primarily harmful for your baby.

  33. What source of Cristi?

  34. It would be interesting to do a tutorial on configuring a NAS from an old system !!!

  35. speakurmind said

    "Power On after Power Failure" DOES NOT REFER - as you totally said wrong - TO UPS, BUT WHAT HARD DRIVE MANAGEMENT! You rushed and made quite a few mistakes throughout the entire tutorial!

  36. Cristi-adminI repeat, if you gather several requests on this subject, I promise to do the tutorial, I even put a system in which dust.

    I hope to do this tutorial

  37. Yes. nice tutorial. I congratulate you for the effort. astep Tutorial NAS in a system (older) with less resources. I do not need 5 processor. We asked visitors to other posts to think before they write, I mean the one who gave the answer for RAID, and Rato longer the one who asked.
    luck continued.

  38. Hello, nice tutorial.Asi like us deazvalui what you ips Cristi home but if you continue tutorial on dd-wrt or open wrt (told it's better than dd-wrt).
    Thank you:)

  39. Hi again, I forgot to say: I want a tutorial on all raid advantages disadvantages, made you live, everything pote about ele.Sa be explicit and at least an hour long
    Thank you
    PS: Sorry for double post :)

    • In my opinion that for a home user does not see the importance of a RAID array above 0, 1 or 0 1 +. (outside of a server who knows what important data, database of police). not worth the investment. for the protection of backup files exist on external HDD, NAS, etc.

  40. I looked to my specific hard drive is SATA II instead of Christ on SATA III think that explains why it's not good and speed controller.

  41. And I subscribe to that to make a tutorial about configuring a NAS from an older PC. Thank you

  42. Cristi how many yards to beat your router?

  43. Bought a NAS can record digital TV? Subscribe to achieving tutorial dintrun have an older PC Pentium 4 who want to put my dust and make one, know what to do but wait tutorial that not wrong!

  44. Cristi-admin: Buy a domain and that domain laws for public IP, ie create a name server. If requested in the comments box and I'll do a tutorial about creating a nose from an older system.

  50. Howdy,
    I also own such a NAS. I wish I could give my opinion about him, but at the moment this year I can…
    That until rid of a problem that I encountered.
    Namely: following the tutorial, I followed exactly the same steps. So, I inserted the installation CD and ran the setup. Then, following the tutorial, everything went well, to the point where I had to check the CIFS box in the UPnP submenu. After pressing the APPLY button, I received the message: "can not setup the upnp port mapping".
    I can not see why we received the mesa. Because the router (TP-Link WR1042ND) I booked an IP NAS and I did a mapping to.
    After that, I noticed that when I pressed "NAS Discovery" from the NAS utility, the connection between the NAS and the router is marked with a red line,… as in the picture in the link:
    http://www1.picturepush.com/photo/a/12782334/640/12782334.jpg
    If anyone knows why this problem greet and wants to help me ... thank very nice.

  51. Welcome. Owning a Zyxel NAS NSA325 and I have a problem: I did not enter. NAS is connected to a trendnet rooter TW100-S4W1CA (10 is a rooter / 100 mb). I installed the little program that came on the CD but I do not show any NAS connected. We entered the rooter in DHCP Client List and there does not appear all that DHCP is enabled. There is a default IP or how do I access the NAS?

    I myself the same question, you gave end?

    • Hello,
      I do not beat my head with that problem.
      I noticed that I was going to do FTP from the outside and the rest of the cutlery… so I didn't struggle to see where the whole problem started.

  54. If you still sneezed at us with this Nose, it would be good to do tutorials with everything you said above, with everything it can do….

  55. Hello, I understand what it's like to download but what about uploading files to not use a computer
    eg comp climb something, how do I transfer to your nose and remain seeding? I download the nose and so are the seed?

  56. You can create your own NAS from a PC using old or unused free SO made available on: http://web.freenas.org/.
    Successes!

  57. Michael B. said

    Thanks a lot for the tutorial. At your recommendation I bought this NAS and now "purced" the configuration. If you have time I would have a few more questions:
    1. Hard disk that you mount the NAS can be partitioned before / after and each partition separately loaded volume?
    2. Will the NAS format the HHD when mounting it as a volume? (I mean, if I leave some data on the HDD, I find it, or….)
    Thank you in advance!

    Multumesc.ast will answer

  67. Hello congratulations tutorial. Time Machine backup system is Apple Macs. Strange is that using a NSA325v2 a router Sitecom X7 Gigabit AC1200 (N up to 300 Mbps, AC to 900 Mbps) and a Macbook Pro Retina plate AC (so fully compliant AC router in Wi-Fi) I speed good in wi-fi when using folder Sharu for Time Machine (written in 25 MB and read with 50 MBs on Wi-Fi), but speed drops almost half when I connect to other folders (other than dedicated to Time Machine) . I have no problem on cable (MBs in 70 transfer speed up and down). Thank you in advance to anyone finds a solution to match the transfer speed using Wi-Fi in all folders on volume, not only one dedicated to Time Machine.

  68. Adrian Marin said

    Howdy. I really liked the tutorial. I got a nose NSA320S and I want to know if you can put more than 10 to download torrents. Or have more than 10 active torrents. Thanks a lot and expect an answer.

  69. Sautare,

    Regards first to review very useful!
    I have a misunderstanding: to use CIFS to access your NAS from Windows Explorer can not only use admin user? If inset I login with another user goes! How can partition access other computers on the network to the NAS folders if all are connected as admin?

  70. This tutorial does not work anymore?

  71. I would like to buy a 310 ZyXel nose without HDD… how do I get to the point where this tutorial starts? Basically, I guess you need to install a firmware ... where do I get it and how do I install it on the NAS?

  72. If all you have done so many tutorials on Zyxel NSA320 come with a proposal to make a tutorial how set the device to function as a cloud. I promise I'll be appreciated more than you!

    Howdy!
    I bought a NAS ZYXEL 325 and I was helped to his installation. I have two hard drives in the NAS identical 2TB in RAID1. I want to copy the information directly on the NAS on an external hard drive via the USB port of the NAS's but fail. Specify that the information contained on the external hard drive has a total size of approx 700GB and are structured in different folders.
    I understand that it uses small button above the USB port on the front of the nose.
    Mr. Cristi, you can tell me exactly how can it be copied?

  74. Hello Cristi

    Given your experience in the IT field, what would you recommend between ZyXEL NAS520 and Synology DS214? Or is it something else I missed? Initially I was interested and I am still actually with this ZyXel 320. Would the price difference between ZyXel 320 (now it is around 200 - 250 RON 2nd hand) and the two (ZyXEL NAS520 and Synology DS214) justify the performance?

    Thanks and much success in the future!
