Dlink DNS-323, part 4 – Gotchas for Mac users

Here are some quick hints that made me lose a couple of hours when setting up the DNS-323 from an iMac:

  • Do not use Safari to access the web administration pages on DNS-323. Especially not when formatting the drives. It just stops at 94% and sits there. Use Firefox instead.
  • Do not use Cyberduck to transfer the fun_plug files to the DNS-323. For some reason, the NAS does not run the fun_plug file when it boots. Instead, use the console FTP client from a terminal to upload the files.
