    Yes I know this but this soft is useless :/


    Wow, thanks for your complet answer. I actually thought of switching OS, like Open Media Vault ? (or do you recommend me one in particular ?). The good things is that I can connect a VGA screen to the NAS directly, with a USB mouse and keyboard.

    For the PING, I tried last day to ping my NAS from my WIndows computer, and it's ping :/
    Check if you are on the same subnet as NAS.

    Your subnet is in Network details. For NAS - use that crappy software for NAS, just to check settings

    Hi there

    I use CENTOS 7 -- it's the free community version of the really robust and hugely used Red Hat Enterprise system. While it's not always leading edge it is 100% stable and reliable so for something like a NAS server it's perfect -- the only time I re-boot is if I'm replacing defective hardware (even then HDD's can be Hot swappable on some systems) or after a rare kernel update.

    I'd try installing in a VM first to get some practice.

    Other distros are good too - but I've had very good experience with CENTOS and everything works. Usually FIRST TIME too.
    Install with a GUI to get a bit of practice.

    Download from Index of /rolling/7/isos/x86_64

    Choose the DVD Centos-7-x86_64-DVD.ISO date 27-03-01 4.0GB

    You can then create a bootable USB - use RUFUS - but if running in a Virtual Machine with VMWARE save ISO to HDD and in the VM config set the VM to boot from the iso and carry through the install process.

    People might prefer different distros but I've used Centos and found it 100% stable so I'm sticking with it.

    I really don't like some of those "Mickey Mouse" OS/es that come with "purpose built" NAS boxes -- with a decent Linux system it's infinitely more flexible.

    BTW also on those NAS boxes -- switch off Hardware RAID if using Linux as the software RAID (MDADM) is so much better and more configurable too. Usually cheap hardware RAID controllers (consumer grade) are HIDEOUS !!!!!.

    Thanks a lot for your answer. I'll take a look at this OS and why not try it under a VM :)

    The OS of Terra Master is a real crap.. After a lot of research I found a possible problem : the version of Samba using by the NAS. And I can't modify it under TOS

    Hi there

    @nathan30

    Try under a VM first -- really easy to do - use VMware player or vbox - I'd recommend VMware as it seems to work straight out of the box.
    Then in your Linux VM switch off firewalls, ensure package ntfs-3g is installed(allows Linux Read / Write access to NTFS files) together with SAMBA and then see if your Windows Host can access the file shares from the Linux VM.

    Any probs please post again - it's easy to set up so I can guide through process without in any way touching Windows stuff so your Windows boot won't be affected in any way.

    Perhaps you should follow the advice I saw on Belgian Railways recently when they had a strike -- on the board outside Brussel centraal - Bruxelles -central they had a message which I had to laugh at ---- Essayer demain !!!!

    And yes, in computer science this kind of advice is really good ahah

    Did you mean this one:
    CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1702-01.iso 2017-03-01 13:09 4.0G

    Or this one:
    CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD.iso 2017-03-01 13:09 4.0G

    Hi there

    the labelling is confusing but strangely enough BOTH those DVD's are the same don't choose the ----DVD-02 one though
