Most times the "proprietary" NAS software is simply a web interface over 
a standard Linux/FreeBSD OS using Samba. If you know Samba and Linux, 
the web interface may be a hurdle, not allowing access to features you 
know how to configure from the shell or, worse yet, overwriting those 
settings, if they provide a shell at all.
