Glad to be of service.

Pitty though it doesn't work for scanners.
I would love to put my multifunctional printer in the network,
but only the printer works.

I found one company that has a software solution for it,
but at twice the price of my printer.

Love this forum too, wife is getting jealous. j/k

NAS to Network adapter. ($49,-)

NAS Adapter from Addonics

Thank you Michel.

Since it will still be handicapped at USB 2.0 speeds, it wouldn't benefit me. I was originally hoping for a cheap NAS box to use 1GB LAN for a faster connection as a workaround to the server's USB connection.

To bad they do not have a direct eSATA to NAS adapter.

Well, I found a good open box special on Newegg for this one below and ordered and received it. - SANS DIGITAL MS2UT+B 2 Bay SATA to eSATA/USB 2.0 RAID 0 / 1 / SAFE33 / 50 Enclosure (Black) - Server RAID Systems

The special was that it was the silver model in the box and not the black model stated on the box even. LOL - SANS DIGITAL MS2UT+ 2 Bay SATA to eSATA/USB 2.0 RAID 0 / 1 / SAFE33 / 50 Enclosure (Silver) - Server RAID Systems

I have it setup in JBOD with two 1.5 TB 5400RPM drives to the ASRock server with WHS installed. It worked perfectly the first time through without a problem. Since it works so well, I'm not worried enough about the color to go through exchanging it.
