The Synology USB Station is an inexpensive 3-in-1 USB SOHO server that functions as a USB disk sharing device, FTP server, and print station. The unit relies on a single Ethernet port to connect to a small office network, after which Windows and Macintosh users can access the attached devices either locally or remotely. In fact, the built-in FTP support provides users from anywhere on the globe with instant access via a user login and password. Included also is the ability to manually configure the FTP port, restrict FTP upload/download bandwidth, and allow for anonymous user login. Note also that the USB Station can be configured with Synology Data Replicator II to automatically backup the data off any locally connected PC.
