Configuring SSH Connections

Secure Shell (SSH) is a network protocol used for securely accessing network services over an unsecured network. Enabling SSH allows users to connect to the NAS using an SSH-encrypted connection or a SSH client such as PuTTY.

SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is a secure network protocol that works with SSH connections to transfer files and navigate through the QTS filesystem. SFTP can be enabled after allowing SSH connections on the NAS.

Important:

Only administrator accounts can access the NAS through SSH.

  1. Go to Control Panel > Network & File Services > Telnet/SSH.
  2. Select Allow SSH connection.
  3. Specify a port number.

    Port numbers range from 1 to 65535.

    Tip:

    The default SSH port is 22.

  4. Optional: Select Enable SFTP.
  5. Click Apply.

Network & File Services updates the SSH connection settings.
