User and Group Configuration

To add a user in FreeNAS, you first need to add a group (Figure 7). Save and Apply the changes and then add a user to that group (Figure 8).

FreeNAS allows you to set user and groups from the web-based control page. Unfortunately, the 0.685b2 beta doesn't yet let you set folder-level permissions from the web interface. You have to set them manually from the command line (fixing this is on the to-do list for the 0.7 beta).

User authentication is supported via Active Directory authentication for Windows based networks. Curiously, the LDAP page is enabled, but LDAP doesn't work (Figure 9).
