    What to do with my old NAS?

    About 6 months ago I bought my first NAS for my home/office setup, a DS220J with 2 x 2TB Seagate Iron Wolf drives. I’ve now bought a DS220+ with 2 x 8TB Seagate Iron Wolf drives - a vast improvement! My question is: what should I do with the DS220J? Sell it or put it to some other use?

    Hi all, I have a Syno MR2200 router and a NAS on the LAN side. The NAS is accessible from the outside. I managed to configure the router as a VPN client, so all my traffic can benefit from a VPN service. However, this prevents my NAS to be reachable from outside, which is a must. Is there any...
