When you configure WebAccess settings, the LinkStation’s settings may show the error as below.
To work around the error:
|•||Choose another "BuffaloNAS.com name" for your WebAccess account. Names may use 3 to 20 alphanumeric characters, underscores (_), and hyphens (-).|
|•||Choose another key. Keys may contain up to 20 alphanumeric characters.|
For TeraStation 5000 series with firmware version 2.40 or LinkStation 400 series with firmware version 1.10
If you click [Random Generation] under “BuffaloNAS.com Key”, the character string contain more than 20 alphanumeric characters. You should use up to 20 alphanumeric characters.
