Welcome to Logicube’s tutorial on the Falcon-NEO forensic imager. The Falcon-NEO allows you to image directly to or from a network repository using SMB or CIFS protocol, or using iSCSI. Two 10GbE ports provide extremely fast network imaging performance. In this episode we’ll show you how to image from a physical drive connected to the Falcon-NEO, to a network repository, using CIFS protocol. Make sure you have full permissions to the shared resource before attempting to create a network repository on the Falcon-NEO. We strongly suggest that you contact your network administrator to ensure proper permissions have been set up.
We have set up a directory on a computer that is connected to the same network as the Falcon-NEO. By right clicking on the directory and checking the share properties, we can verify that we have full permissions to this share. We’ll now create and mount the repository on the Falcon-NEO.
