Advanced Networking Features

[contactTout name=mini]

Virtual LAN

The IT administrator can integrate the NAS server to an existing VLAN and configure the NAS server as the storage system of other VLAN devices. By enabling VLAN on the NAS server, only the devices with the same ID can access the NAS server.

High Network Bandwidth

All Ciphertex NAS server devices offer network expansion options which includes dual-port 1 GbE and dual-port 10 GbE network expansion cards, to aggregate and boost network performance. The NAS server units include two Gigabit (GbE) LAN ports which can be expanded to four GbE LAN ports or two 10 GbE LAN ports plus two GbE ports.

High Network Bandwidth

To prevent the Ciphertex NAS server from malicious attacks, you can create an IP filter policy to allow, deny, or auto-block the IP address or network domain which attempts to connect to the Ciphertex NAS server via SSH/Telnet/HTTP(S)/FTP/Samba/AFP.


SSL Security (HTTPS)

The Ciphertex NAS server supports HTTPS connection. The IT administrator can upload a secure certificate and RSA private key in X.509PEM format issued by a trusted provider to allow access to the NAS server via secure SSL login.

Benefits of Multiple LAN Ports

Multi-IP Setting

Ciphertex NAS servers support multiple IP addresses. This allows sharing among different workgroups in different subnets. Load Balancing

Aggregates bandwidth to boost the file transfer speed. Data traffic is evenly distributed to balance network loading. Port Trunking modes, Balance-rr (Round-Robin), Active Backup, Balance XOR, Broadcast, IEEE 802.3ad, Balance-tlb (Adaptive Transmit Load Balancing) and Balance-alb (Adaptive Load Balancing)


Provides continuous services when one network port fails.

Shared Folder Aggregation

Access the shared folders of other servers with Microsoft Networking through a “portal folder” on a Ciphertex NAS server. This saves the time and effort of logging into different servers one by one.

Secure FTP

The Ciphertex NAS server offers secure FTP data transfer with SSL/TLS (explicit) encryption. Passive FTP port range setup is also supported.


Ciphertex NAS servers support IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6) which makes your NAS server a dual-stack IP host running IPv4 and IPv6 at the same time.
