Centralized user authentication
A RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial In User Service) server provides centralized authentication and authorization management for computers to connect and use a network service. It is often used by ISPs and enterprises to manage access to the Internet or internal networks, wireless networks, and integrated e-mail services. The new RADIUS server support allows the Turbo NAS to provide the features a RADIUS server can.
Host multiple websites in a place
In this digital era, building websites has become one of the most direct ways for businesses to communicate with customers in a timely manner. Instead of investing precious time and effort in relevant IT setup procedures and cost in hardware purchase, the Turbo NAS provides a great alternative with simple setup process, helping build up business websites easily and quickly, in just one place.
Thanks to the “virtual host” feature, up to 32 websites can be hosted in a single Turbo NAS, helping minimize IT expenses.
Cross-platform printer sharing
In business environments, sharing the printer connected to a certain workgroup member’s computer can be inconvenient. That means, the member’s computer has to be on all the time.
Good news is, the Turbo NAS can play the role as a printer server. By connecting a compatible USB printer to the Turbo NAS, members can use the cross-platform printer resources over the network and send remote printing request over the Internet (max. 3 USB printers) without interrupting each other’s work. It supports IPP (Internet Printing Protocol), Samba, print job management and Bonjour printing for Mac OS X.
Printing management on the web
As the Turbo NAS acts as a printer server and becomes the hub to manage cross-platform printing requests from numerous users, it is also beneficial for IT administrators to centrally control the printer resources in terms of access permission or printing tasks management. For example, IT administrators can allow or restrict the use of printers from certain IP addresses or domains, making sure the printer is dedicated and used by the right department members to prevent resource overload.Application Notes
