To connect to the NAS from Mac, enable Apple Filing Protocol. If the AppleTalk network uses extended networks and is assigned with multiple zones, assign a zone name to the NAS. Enter an asterisk (*) to use the default setting. This setting is disabled by default.
To allow access to the NAS from Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, enable “DHX2 authentication support”. Click “Apply” to save the settings.
You can use the Finder to connect to a shared folder from Mac. Go to “Go” > “Connect to Server”, or simply use the default keyboard shortcut “Command+k”.
Enter the connection information in the “Server Address” field, such as “afp://YOUR_NAS_IP_OR_HOSTNAME”. Here are some examples:
Note: Mac OS X supports both Apple Filing Protocol and Microsoft Networking. To connect to the NAS via Apple Filing Protocol, the server address should start with “afp://”. To connect to the NAS via Microsoft Networking, please use “smb://”.
