Connecting to the QNAP Storage Devices

In order to connect to the ieeg QNAPs, you must be on the Wispic internal network.  You are on this network if any of the following conditions are true:

  • You are on a computer in Wispic that has a physical Ethernet cable connected to it
  • You are on a computer in Wispic that has a WiFi connection to the wispic-secure network
  • You are on a computer outside of Wispic that has a VPN connection to Wispic’s network

If one of these conditions is true, you should be able to follow the steps for your computer operating system below.  Please contact the helpdesk if you need help.
