App Based Firewalls for NAS's


Recommended Posts

  • 3 months later...

Great video on Qufirewall from our old friend Mike Faucher, may be useful in other platforms as well  e.i.  why would you enable a firewall on your NAS

Good description of what it is and how to to set up


I  met Mike Faucher at a couple of the legendary homeserver show meetups. I think his demos caused me to go with a qnap nas

Good guy. He has dry, but concise , clear videos. Lots of content on qnap

I was very disappointed in qufirewall, but it's clear that part of the problem was how i set it up,  still lousy documentation and launch by QNAP

Will try it again after its updated this month

looks good but

after the last three years of ransomware and other security issues,  I would be very leery of trusting them for a router


dont get me wrong,  I love qnap hardware,, best value for an intel based NAS.    Works solidly as a file and media server.

they tried to open up the devices and did a half assed job , especially to us noobs in the home market


also, only supports 2 x 2.5" drives, which is some low by the standard build on this forum
