NAS How To

Configuring ClarkConnect - more

For this project, we will only need to use two ClarkConnect menus: Services and Software.

The first thing to do after getting into theClarkConnect GUI is to go to the services menu to register your server with ClarkConnect. Figure 3 shows you the services menu.

You need to log into this page with the username and password that you created in Step 0 above. Remain calm. Think back. Remember when you went to https://secure.clarkconnect.com/webapp/ and registered? The user name you created for that registration is what you want to enter here. Look at the note where you wrote down the username and password.

Enter any name that you want for the System name (Figure 4). I entered Toms DIY NAS. The serial number for your machine will be created by ClarkConnect's back-end system. Click Continue.

Next, you will see the ClarkConnect terms and conditions (Figure 5). Click I agree and then click continue.

It will take anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute before your system is registered with the ClarkConnect back end. ClarkConnect has back end servers to support for-pay services which include updating proxy filters, detecting intrusions, filtering SPAM, as well as virus protection. This registration with ClarkConnect's back-end systems will put your NAS on the map to receive updates from ClarkConnect.

Once your system is registered, the services page will come back up as in Figure 6, showing your system's registration information.
