What are the permission management modes provided for the file system sharing by the N8000?

The N8000 provides two types of file share mode: the CIFS share, the NFS share, the FTP share and the HTTP share.

For the CIFS share, the authentication modes include local authentication and domain authentication. The locally authenticated permissions are managed based on local groups. The domain authentication permissions are managed based on files which is configured by the AD domain administrator after the N8000 is added to the AD domain.

For the NFS share, the permissions on the file system are managed and controlled by providing a specific client or network group in NFS mode. Sharing the file system to the network group requires that the N8000 be added to the LDAP domain or NIS domain. Therefore, you can manage the permission on the file system by configuring and managing the network information (user information or group information) of the LDAP domain server or NIS domain server.

For the FTP share, different users are set to have different permissions for the same directory or file. Global configuration includes setting the maximum number of access threads of an IP address and setting the ports of the FTP server. This function enables the user to flexibly configure the FTP service and maintain FTP services.

For the HTTP share, HTTP is primarily used for transferring hpertext from the server to the local browser. The N8500 allows you to access files system using the HTTP.
