File system access protocols

The server supports the SMB (CIFS), NFS, and FTP protocols for client file access, as well as iSCSI for block-level access to storage. All supported protocols can be enabled or disabled.

The server allows NFS, SMB, and FTP users to access the same file space; however, although iSCSI Logical Units (LUs) reside on file systems, it is not possible to access folders and files located on an iSCSI target through the server’s file services (for example, SMB or NFS).

These protocols, with the exception of FTP, require a license key for activation.
