So I just got an 8TB one of these (Thecus N8800) and now I want to configure it locally before I send it off to another building for remote storage and back-up. The directions say to connect the WAN port to the switch/hub/router, but I was hoping I could just connect it via my second ethernet port (en1) on my mac pro and perform the initial data back-up directly. However, I can't get my machine to recognize the NAS. The default IP for the NAS is 192.168.1.100 so presumably it isn't just using DHCP to fetch an IP address from my MP. I did set-up internet sharing over en1, but that doesn't help, but I think it is necessary. I guess I need a way to get the NAS to use DHCP or get my MP to route via the 192.168.X.X IP addresses. I *mostly* know what I'm doing, but I'm a bit stumped here. Basically, I want to be able to configure the NAS, but I can't configure it unless I can connect to it....and I can't currently connect to it. Thoughts?
