Enabling Security and Creating an Administrator User

With security turned on, only administrator users can view or change settings on the ix2, including creating
or deleting users and Shares. When you create users, you limit access to your ix2 to specific people, and
when you secure Shares, you limit data access to specific users.
1.
On the Security page, click the switch on.
2.
When you turn security on, you will be asked to create an administrator user. Provide a username
and password, and then confirm your password.
3.
Encryption is always available when you access your ix2 using https. By setting local encryption,
you enforce encryption on your local network. By setting remote encryption, you enforce
encryption outside your local network, such as through the internet. Choices for both encryption
types are Not required, Passwords only (passwords are encrypted through https), and Always
(encryption is always enforced). Always encrypting communication is safest, but can impact
performance.
When security is turned on, browser communications with the ix2 are encrypted. Therefore, each
computer that attempts to access the ix2 may encounter a security warning, which can be safely
ignored. In addition, you may be asked to accept a signed certificate for the ix2 , which you should
accept. If you change the device name at a later date, these warnings may appear again.
4.
If you have your own security certificate, you can load it by selecting Use an imported
certificate and browsing to the certificate to load it.
