What's the process for rebooting a QNAP NAS remotely?

Rebooting a QNAP NAS remotely

To reboot a QNAP NAS (Network Attached Storage) device remotely, follow the steps below:

1. Access the NAS web interface

Open a web browser on your computer or mobile device and enter the IP address of your QNAP NAS. Login using your admin credentials to access the QTS (QNAP Turbo NAS System) interface.

2. Navigate to the System Settings

Once logged in, navigate to the "Control Panel" and select "System Settings."

3. Reboot options

Within the "System Settings" section, locate and click on the "System Tools" tab. Here, you will find various options including "System Reboot."

4. Initiate the reboot

Click on the "System Reboot" option to initiate the reboot process. A confirmation dialog box may appear, asking for your confirmation to proceed with the reboot. Confirm the reboot and wait for the NAS device to restart.

5. Verify the reboot

Once the NAS has restarted, you can check its status to ensure the reboot was successful. Access the web interface again and navigate to the "Overview" or "System Status" section to verify the NAS's operational status.


  • Ensure that you have a stable and reliable network connection to avoid any interruptions during the reboot process.
  • Rebooting a QNAP NAS remotely may result in temporary unavailability of services and data access until the device fully restarts.
