If your network is DHCP-enabled, your LaCie NAS will automatically be assigned an IP address and other values.
The LaCie 2big NAS has a single LAN port while the LaCie 5big NAS Pro includes two LAN ports (see below). If you wish to review or modify the values of a LAN port:
Selecting Edit allows you to modify certain network parameters. You can manually adjust network values by choosing Manual configuration and give the LAN port a unique name (LaCie 5big NAS Pro only). Make certain to check the box next to Default gateway to enter or revise a gateway address. For the manual address to take effect, all fields (including Default Gateway and DNS Server) must be completed before selecting Apply. The LAN port will revert to automatic if a field is left blank.
Icons representing the two LAN ports on the Connections tab indicate connection to the network:
The LaCie 5big NAS Pro is equipped with two LAN ports for enhanced network performance. Review the instructions below to learn how to configure the LaCie 5big NAS Pro LAN ports for your network.
The primary Ethernet port:
You can change the priority order by reassigning the role of primary port.
A proxy server may be used to connect compatible network devices to the internet. If necessary, your LaCie NAS can be configured to use a proxy server. First, activate the feature by selecting the Proxy server option from the drop-down menu, then fill in the proxy server address, port, and optional authentication information. Choose Apply for your changes to take affect.

Use this page to manage your LaCie NAS's port forwarding.
To access the internet, file and application services (e.g. HTTP, HTTPS, remote access (see LaCie MyNAS), download machine, and more) use port numbers on the LaCie NAS and the network router. As seen in the screenshot above, automatic port forwarding is turned on by default and the port numbers are the same for both the NAS port and Router port columns.
In most instances, automatic port forwarding should help you access services on the NAS. However, enterprise-level network security or port availability on your router can prevent access to ports. Therefore, it may be necessary to change the router port numbers manually for services. Before adjusting numbers in this tab, confirm that the ports you wish to use are available on your router. For example, if you intend to change download machine to router port number 8800, you must make certain that port 8800 is available on your router. Additionally, your router must be compatible with UPnP-IGD/NAT-PMP protocols. See your router's user manual for details.
To disable port forwarding for a service, select its configuration icon (pencil) and then choose Disable.
