Can anyoen please direct me on how to access my ReadyNAS using the run command?

I want to beable to access it with out having to install a program. On the same network.

I've seen it done before. I don't know what NAS it was. So I was wondering if I can do it on my NAS?

Any help or suggestions would be greatly apprecated.

Thank you.

Re: Connecting via run command

If the name of your ReadyNAS is "ReadyNAS", you can type \\ReadyNAS in the run box and it will open a Windows Explorer instance with the NAS shares in it.  NOTE:  Backslashes, not forward.  You can do the same using it's IP address instead of its name.

Hi @astro76

 

What do you want to access on the NAS, Data? Admin page? SSH?

 

Admin page access is through a Web browser like Chrome, IE, Firefox. Please see this KB.

 

If it's data you need then you can use the NAS IP which can be discovered on RAIDar or on the NAS LCD. You can check the following articles.

This uses Windows explorer.

 

If you need to access the NAS system using SSH then you need to install a console emulator. Please check this article.

 

 

 

I would advise using available tools provided to access your ReadyNAS since this makes it easier and less complicated to manage.

 

Other users might be able to provide tips on accessing your NAS using the Run command from Windows.

 

 

Here are additional articles that might be of help

 

 

Accessing Network share using command prompt

Accessing NAS drive via CMD

 

Hope this helps!
