Can I use Time Machine to make a backup to a NAS (Network Attached Storage) device?

Time Machine requires the protocols CIFS (Common Internet File System) and SMB (Server Message Block) to function. When you use this device as a NAS device, these protocols are not supported. If you use this device as a DAS (Direct Attach Storage) device, you can use Time Machine.
