What is UNC path

The UNC is Universal/Uniform Naming Convention, it is a path describes the location of a volume, directory, or file. It is similar to the device name from Microsoft  Network Neighborhood.

As like a N5200 named n5200nas at, and we could type \\n5200nas on Internet Exploer address line to access the folder/file directly, and alos type \\ too. ( The symbol // means HTTP as like we could type // to access the WEB page on )

But such naming convention would not working fine on every user's Windows networking environment, if can't access to NAS via UNC path smoothly, we would recommend via IP method would more directly and quickly as like \\
