Network-attached storage (NAS) is file-level computer data storage connected to a computer network providing data access to heterogeneous network clients. It means that we access Thecus NAS via HTTP, SAMBA and FTP protocol communications with various opertation systems. That is to say, if these operating systems support HTTP, SAMBA and FTP protocol tool, then they compatible with Thecus NAS, too. Therefore, no matter 32bit version or 64bit version Windows system will access NAS perfectly.

Some reason that Windows Vista / Windows 7 system login to the NAS might fail due to certificate setting.

Firstly, when Vista/Windows7 login another server, it use it's own certificate and automatically add it's domain name(the default domain name is the host name of Vista / Windows7 computer).

Secondary, Windows use a protocol called NTLM authentication to do the certification, Vista/Windows7 default use new version of NTLM v2 only, the protocol use for communicate are different between NTLM and NTLMv2. That's why the server not allow the login ID and password form Vista / Windows7.

For Windows7 users want to access SMB/CIFS, since Windows 7 accepts NTLMv2 only and please do the following steps:

START -> search-> local security policy -> Security Settings-> Local Policies -> Security Options-> Network security: LAN Manager authentication level- > Change the option to "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated"
