QNAP has released a new version of its NAS management software that fixes Mac OS X Lion connectivity and Time Machine backup problems.

New & enhanced features of the V3.5 firmware include:

  • Mac OS X Lion support: supports file access and Time Machine backup
  • Antivirus: scans the Turbo NAS manually or on recurring schedule and deletes or quarantines files infected by viruses, malware, Trojans, and other malicious threats
  • LDAP client: supports joining in an LDAP server and allowing LDAP domain users to access the NAS
  • Syslog server: supports collecting, parsing, analyzing, and storing system messages from various servers or network devices
  • RADIUS server: provides RAIDIUS-client-enabled devices with centralized account management and authentication for network access
  • ISCSI LUN backup with snapshot: supports backing up iSCSI LUNs to different storage locations, restoring back to The Turbo NAS, or creating a LUN snapshot and mapping it to an iSCSI target
  • External drive encryption: blocks unauthorized access and protects external drives data by encrypting a disk volume or a specific partition
  • Windows Live Messenger notifications: allows the administrator to instantly monitor the NAS status and receive instant notifications on warning and error alerts via Windows Live Messenger
  • Service binding support: provides options to allow or block specific services from predefined network interfaces, including Wi-Fi
  • TFTP server with PXE booting: provides an easy-to-use method for configuration management of network devices, and supports remote network booting of computers for system imaging or recovery
  • Comprehensive Real-time Remote Replication (RTRR) support: the RTRR feature is now available for all Turbo NAS models
  • Upgraded MyCloudNAS Ver 1.1: provides QCloud Access Code for secure access control on publishing the NAS services. The administrator can also manually allow private services to up to 9 users
  • Surveillance Station enhancement: over 50 IP cameras from AXIS, Cicso/Linksys, D-link, iPUX, LevelOne, TRENDNet, and VIVOTEK are now supported
  • Enhanced Router Compatibility: 10 new routers from Apple, ASUS, D-Link, Linksys, Netgear, and ZyXEL are newly compatible with auto router configuration.
