Open Turbostation

This mini-wiki is designed to provide additional technical information for the Qnap Turbostation range of NAS devices. These little boxes contain SATA drives and small Linux kernels enabling the contents to be served across a local area network. Recent additions, such as UPnP provide opportunities to stream music and video data to your local devices.

More general information can be found on the Wikipedia site [1]. This mini wiki is designed for those who want to Open up the functionality of their Turbostation; in particular making use of the type III mini PCI socket, and upgraded memory. Thus it is similar in concept to the nslu2-linux website.

Firefox and Port 6000

Within Firefox the port 6000 (used by the TS series administrator menu) is disabled. To enable it browse to the following page


Then add a new key

Right click within the list window, and select 'New'->'String'

Enter the string name


Enter the port number (use a comma seperated list for more than one port)


Newer firmwares

Newer firmwares uses port 8080 for web administration pages instead of the old choise of port 6000. This makes Firefox work out of the box with the QNAP NS series.

Mailing List

An OpenTurbostation mailing list has been created at Yahoo!. Please use this to ask specific questions rather than adding lines to the Wiki. We suggest subscribing on a daily digest basis in order to minimise traffic to your mail boxes.

Slimserver and Squeezebox / Transporter
