    Allow Anonymous

    If this is selected, anyone can read files without logging in to WebAccess. They will not be affected by access restrictions on shared folders. For write access, an account on the Linkstation/ TeraStation and login is required.

    Allow All Groups / Users

    If this is selected, then groups and users registered on the LinkStation or TeraStation can read and write files remotely if they are logged in to WebAccess. They will not be affected by access restrictions on shared folders.

    Use Inherited Folder Permissions

    If this is selected, users and groups have the same access permissions with WebAccess that they do locally. Users must log in to WebAccess to access files remotely.
