Configuring Your LenovoEMC Personal Cloud

As a LenovoEMC Personal Cloud administrator, you can manage various settings on your Personal Cloud
to ensure that it functions as efficiently as possible. Settings include specifying an email address when
sending invitations. When data is traveling through the Personal Cloud, you can control the security of that
information by specifying a Secure Communication level. Note that data stored on your ix2 through the
Personal Cloud is not encrypted, and using encryption can slow down communications.

Enabling Internet Access to the ix2

You can grant internet users, including LenovoEMC Link users, secure access to the web interface and
unrestricted access to media content on your ix2. LenovoEMC Link is an application that runs on mobile
devices, and allows access to content on your ix2. Before enabling secure access, you must first
on your ix2 and
ix2, and view any unsecured content. Secure content is restricted to internet users who have valid
usernames and passwords for the ix2. When you enable unrestricted media content access, your media
files become available to all internet users.

Changing Personal Cloud Settings

In the Configure section of the Personal Cloud page, click Settings.
In the Personal Cloud Settings dialog box, configure the following:
Administration Email Address — This is the sender email address used on the email
Port Number — Your router forwards this specific port for your Personal Cloud. This value is
automatically filled in, and you do not have to change it, unless you have more than one
Personal Cloud on your network. Refer to
for more information.
Secure Communication — This setting controls the security of information traveling through
the Personal Cloud.
You can also specify a Secure Communication level setting with LenovoEMC Storage
Manager. The Secure Communication setting for the ix2 Management Console sets the
minimum value. You cannot specify a setting lower than this value using LenovoEMC Storage
Manager. For information on using LenovoEMC Storage Manager, refer to its online help.
Enable unrestricted access to media content— This setting makes all media files in media-
enabled Shares available to anyone on the internet accessing your ix2, even if those media
files are in secured Shares. For more information on making a Share media-enabled, refer to
changing Share
Click Apply to save your changes.
