    【About WebAccess Public Mode】
    The read/write permission of folders varies depending on a combination of the set-up for shared folders and the Web Access function.

    Allow Anonymous:
    Folders and files are "readable" without a prior login to the Web Access. Folders and files are readable as well as writable to all the users registered on this product, regardless of the user/group access restriction set to the shared folders.

    Allow All Groups and Users:
    No file manipulation on the Web Access Web is possible without a prior login to the Web Access. Folders and files are readable as well as writable to all the users registered on this product, regardless of the user/group access restriction set to the shared folders.
