Configuring Service Binding Settings

NAS services run on all available network interfaces by default. Service binding enables you to bind services to specific network interfaces to increase security. You can bind services to one or more specific wired or wireless network interfaces.


Configuring service binding does not affect users currently connected to the NAS. When users reconnect they will only be able to access the configured services using the specified network interfaces.

  1. Go to Control Panel > Network & File Services > Network Access > Service Binding.
  2. Select Enable Service Binding.

    A list of available services and interfaces is displayed.

  3. Bind services to interfaces.
    • By default, QTS services are available on all network interfaces.

    • Services must be bound to at least one interface.


    Click Use Default Value to bind all services.

    1. Identify a service.
    2. Deselect interfaces not bound to the service.
  4. Click Apply.

Network & File Services saves the service binding settings.
