I have a Thecus N0503 ComboNAS that I use to act as storage for all my digital music, video and photos. This is connected to my Time Capsule using gigabit ethernet and that in turn is connected to an O2 modem/router to the internet. I allow all the wireless Macs in the house to access Shared Folders and I have the iTunes server built-in to the Thecus switched on.
I am new to NAS devices and particularly all the acronyms used for the various ways of allowing access to FTP, NFS, SAMBA/CIFS etc and I was wondering if this ignorance is responsible for my problem.
Even with everything switched off apart from the NAS, Time Capsule and modem/router (so no interaction from any connected Mac) there seems to be a lot of hard drive activity as witnessed by the panel lights and noise coming from the Thecus. There are two drives installed currently set as a RAID 0 striped volume, but this couldn't be responsible for this amount of activity could it?
I'm just worried that I'm sharing all my media files with anybody who can connect to my NAS and would like a walk-thru to set this up as securely as possible. The modem/router is secure, as is the wireless network provided by the Time Capsule.
