Network-Attached Storage With FreeNAS - Page 3

3 Further Network Configuration

Now we log in to the FreeNAS web interface by typing http://192.168.0.100/ (or whatever IP address you assigned to FreeNAS) in our browser.

We will be asked for a login. The default login is: username admin, password freenas.

The welcome page looks like this:

We didn't specify a gateway yet for our FreeNAS system, so we go to Interfaces -> LAN and enter our gateway IP address (192.168.0.1) under Gateway, then we hit Save.

The system must be rebooted for the changes to take effect, so we go to the FreeNAS terminal again and hit 5 and then y:

After the reboot we can connect to the web interface again. Go to System -> General setup and fill in two DNS servers (e.g. 145.253.2.75 and 193.174.32.18). If you don't specify DNS servers, the system cannot connect to NTP servers if you use an FQDN (like pool.ntp.org - which is the default value) for the NTP server. On the same page, you can also change the admin password from freenas to a different value:

That's it for the network configuration, no reboot is needed.

I think I have a different version of freenas, but this how-to still rocks.  I'm using a Dell PowerEdge 2650, and still have a few kinks to iron out myself, but the software is kickin tail.  Thank you, all who contribute to the forge!

I followed the instruction and it worked well except that the article is incomplete.  FTP & SCP works.  I can't get the SMB portion to work properly.   I am seeing the freenas machine and I am able to Map the resource from the Windows side but it keeps asking for my password (obviously not accepting it).  No solution were found.

For a windows pc to accept the conection you must use the ip\username format  in the user field

for example your freenas ip is: 1.1.1.1 and you have a user : myuser1 then

when asked you should use  1.1.1.1\myuser1 in the username field

that is for windows to know that the user is not local or domain suplied.

that works.
