The goal of NAS-Tweaks.net is to allow owners of small Network-Attached Storage (NAS) devices to communicate with each other about technical- or usage matters related to their device. We hope the site will also help the developers who create these devices to learn about user issues and enable developers and users to informally communicate.

The site intends to inform about tips, FAQs, tutorials and issues of the devices. A forum is available to ask questions or for general discussion.

The scope is currently limited to small devices, mostly boxes with two slots for SATA drives which run a small version of Linux on a ARM processor. We may extend the scope in the future to include other NAS devices – especially that that run very similar software on very similar hardware.

NAS-Tweaks has no affiliation with the manufacturer or distributers of the NAS devices. Representatives of these companies are however encouraged to use the site to collect user feedback and to communicate with “their” users in general. Such representatives are requested to clearly indicate their affiliation in their signature or user name to avoid misunderstandings.

This site was created by Uli (who is the site administrator and who registered the NAS-Tweaks domain name) with the help of PeterH.

  1. Hello – great site, thanks for the excellent info.

    The webpage


    as rendered in my browser (Chrome 16.0.912.77 m) repeats after the first “Fun_plug and user accounts” header, with the line:

    “Note that the initial execution of the fun_plug script creates a new usThe Conceptronic CH3SNAS run…”

    and goes on to repeat most of the content above. Just any FYI.

    Kind regards,


  2. First, I want to thank you for your tutorials which helped me to tweak my old dns-313 very easily. I’ve tried so many times before with no success but now I am following your tutorials everything is running smoothly.
    I’d like to make a request. I’d like to install irssi but couldn’t make it to work. I’ve tried to follow the instructions here : http://forum.dsmg600.info/viewtopic.php?id=5421 but I’ve failed.
    So maybe if you have some times to spend on it you could make again our life a little bit easier 😉

  3. HOwdy,

    Thanks for the tutorils, they are great!

    Since I had great success with Twonky install, I was wondering if there could be a tutorial for ‘SERVIIO’, since Java is an option with the FONZ FUN_PLUG.

    I love that Twonky works, but I don’t like that it doesn’t not have any rewind or Fast-forward controls. I heard Serviio does, so I was wondering if there is a way to install it on a DNS-345.

    Thanks n Cheers.

  4. hello trying to get a c compiler working on my dns320 funz .7 .does anyone have some links to what packages are required.

  5. About a DNS-320L with last firmware and FFPlug.
    Is it safe to power off the NAS using the front switch? (i.e. properly close/halt all the running NAS processes?)

  6. finally got my dns 320l working thanks to this site. Brilliant thanks. Does anyone know what is the best software to access content via mobile without having the computer on? at the moment i can access all my music, but only whilst the computer is on.
