Created 07/30/2012 11:17  |   Updated 10/04/2013 12:12
Step 1 Preparing a Backup Destination

 

First, configure a folder as a backup destination.

 

1.

In Settings, navigate to [Folder Setup].

 

2.

Choose the folder to set as a backup destination.

 

3.

Click [Edit].

 

4.

Check "Backup" from "LAN Protocol Support", then click [OK].

 

Note: To configure a password, enter it in the "Remote Backup Password" field. Leave this field blank if you don't want a password. If the target device is configured with a backup password, you can search for the password from the backup source.

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2 Configuring Backup

 

 

Backing up to a LinkStation or TeraStation on another network when connected by a VPN

 

You can back up to a LinkStation or TeraStation on another network as long as the two networks are connected by a VPN. Follow this procedure to enter the IP address or hostname of the target LinkStation or TeraStation.

 

1.

In Settings, click [Backup].

 

2.

Click to the right of "Backup".

 

3.

Click [List of LinkStations and TeraStations].

 

4.

Click [Add], enter the IP address of the target LinkStation or TeraStation, and click [Close].

 

If your setup meets these requirements, you don't have to configure these settings:

• The source and target TeraStations are on the same network.

• No backup password is set for the target TeraStation.

• No TeraStation from outside the subnet, or connected by a VPN, is used.

 

 

Notes:

To back up data between LinkStations or TeraStations on a network using jumbo frames, make sure that both devices are configured to use identical (or similar) Ethernet frame sizes. If Ethernet frame sizes are significantly different, the backup job may not be properly performed. In such a case, select the default frame size (1518 bytes).
You can also specify hostname by a fully qualified domain name (FQDN).

 

 

 

Configuring a Backup Job

 

1.

In Settings, click [Backup].

 

2.

Click to the right of "Backup".

 

3.

Click [Create New Job].

Note: Up to 8 backup jobs can be configured.

 

4.

Select backup settings such as date and time to run.
