    Howto Block DSM redirect error page.

    Hello again. I have 443 open and forwarded to the NAS. This lets me use PhotoStation, DS Photo and DS File from the interwebs. (Plus it apparently needs to be open for Lets Encrypt). But, by the same token a Browser request to 'www .mydomain .com' - whilst not loading a page - provides an...

    If I change DSM default ports, does that disable the default port access for mobile apps?

    So I'm still poking around my network trying to understand all the ports and how they're interacting. Eventually I'll get some reverse proxies set up, but I want to make sure I clearly understand what is going on at the base level before moving on. I had DSM set on the default 5000/5001 ports...

    How do you choose your DSM network ports?

    I keep reading to change it from the default 5000/5001 to make it more difficult for bad guys to find my stuff. I know where to change the port; my question is how do you go about selecting a different number? I don't want to accidentally pick a port number that is even more common than 5000/5001.

    I'm just wondering: It's great to install a virtual DSM to test some betas (for example DSM7 this time), maybe test some settings, testing new packages, etc. But when and why might you need to host more than one virtual DSM? On your host machine you can set up multiple users, user quotas...

    Info DSM 7: where art thou Reverse Proxy?

    It took me a bit of time to find this and no help looking up 'reverse proxy'. DSM 6's Application Portal page is now Login Portal. The old Reverse Poxy tab is now buried in Advanced. Login Portal also is the new home for DSM 6's Network / DSM Settings.
