Product Shot 2 Many of the applications that come with the similar DS109j have been included such as an iTunes server, BitTorrent, FTP, HTTP, eMule, and NZB, Photo Station 3, Download Station 2 and website hosting with PHP+MySQL. It is also DNLA certified which means it can stream audio and video content to compatible devices such as TV's, stereo systems, Xbox, PS3 and more.

Common with NAS servers, the software that you use to access it is web based, which means you use a web browser to communicate with it through the Gigabit LAN network connection.
