iSCSI (Windows Targets)

There are a number of software based Windows iSCSI Target options available, the majority of which require a licence. Some vendors provide a free license version for personal use - which may have reduced functionally. Target options include, but are not limited to, the following -

Installing and configuring all of the iSCSI Targets listed above is beyond the scope of this guide - I have however included some instructions for Kernsafe iStorage Server (see here), Microsoft iSCSI Software Target (here) and pyTarget (here).

NOTE - some Targets will only allow authenticated connections - Client/Host system identifiers may need to be specified for connections to be made. pyTarget for example will only allow connections from a Client/Host whose IQN has been added to a filter list. Microsoft iSCSI Software Target 3.3 also requires Client/Host identification.
