Image 1 of 7
From D-Link: “The D-Link DNS-323 2-Bay Network Storage Enclosure, when used with internal SATA drives, enables you to share documents, files, and digital media such as music, photos, and video with everyone on the home or office network. Remotely accessing files through the Internet is also possible with the built-in FTP server.”
“Note that use of an FTP Server to access files over the Internet does not provide for secure or encrypted transmissions. It is recommended that the end-user utilize a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to establish a secure FTP session.”

From D-Link: “The D-Link DNS-323 2-Bay Network Storage Enclosure, when used with internal SATA drives, enables you to share your documents, music, photos, and videos across the network and on the Internet so family members, friends, or employees can access them. This enclosure also allows you to create a central network point for backing up valuable files and the built-in RAID 1 mirroring technology protects these files from drive failure. You can also use this device to stream music, photos, and videos to UPnP AV compatible network media players.”
Note: “Hard Drive(s) not included. An internal SATA drive is required to store or share files. RAID 1 mirroring requires the use of two (2) internal SATA drives. To avoid data incompatibility in RAID 1 operation, use SATA drives from the same manufacturer. Formatted drive capacity for RAID 1 operation is dependant on the drive capacity of the lowest-sized drive. May not work with older generation SATA drives.”
Note: “D-Link cannot guarantee full compatibility or proper playback with all codecs. Playback capability depends on the codec support of the UPnP AV media player.”
From D-Link: “Whether you are allowing access locally or over the Internet, keep data safe by only giving rights to specific users or groups. When configuring the DNS-323, you can create users and groups and assign them to folders with either read or read/write permissions. This is ideal for an office environment with employee-specific sensitive data or for the home where you can ensure your children will only have access to age appropriate material.”
The DNS-323 provides a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Port, a USB Print Server Port, and a built-in fan.
The DNS-323’s dimensions are 4.1″ x 7.8″ x 5.2″ (W x D x H).
The DNS-323 weighs 2.7 lbs.
