Thanks for this info.

Do you know if it is possible to:

- Add, index contents (words inside) & search

PDF files that are stored on the NAS, accessed via Internet (Wifi or cellular), using an iPad app like Mendeley or Papers?

I've been really miffed by the too little storage space that iPad has and have been looking at ways to extend that in a way that is *DIRECTLY ACCESSIBLE* from scientific research paper reading apps like mentioned above.

For me, it's not very useful to have thousands of papers manually openable via a file browser.

They need to be fully indexed, searchable and readable from inside an iPad app like Mendeley or Papers.
