Been lookingat a mates machine, and he has Time Machine backups going to an external USB drive.

Can Time Machine be set up to use a NAS box (FreeNAS)?

Cheers

Here is more information on using an NAS.

It seems that FreeNAS supports iSCSI, so, with a bit of technical effort, you could use an OS X iSCSI client. Could be somewhat faster and lets you commit a specific amount of space, if you want.

Thanks guys.
Yes FreeNAS does have an iSCSI services available, as well as AFP (I think it is called) the Apple file sharing protocol.
