    Change remote server name (not address)?

    Hi, I am backing up a server to a remote Synology. Synology connects to it via the hostname of my WAN that resolves to the ip. Everything works. However in the backup list the server is listed as the hostname. I want to add a more descriptive name, especially if I am going to back up several...

    Coming Back For More on DDNS and Remote Access

    Thank you to both Rusty and WST16 for their rapid and helpful responses to my first question yesterday. Having read the recommended documents I am wiser, but not necessarily sufficiently to take meaningful action. I think I see what to do and then as I try to implement it, I remain confused. My...

    Info How to write a remote server shutdown script after checking the shared folder synchronization log table using SQLITE3 built-in synology

    Saves the results of the successful processing of shared folder synchronization to a DB file through the Log Center. And then we're going to use SQLITE3 built-in synology to re-Script to check. Once a normal BACKUP has been verified, the remote NAS server can be shut down via the SSH...

    Thoughts on Remote Access to a NAS

    A recent discussion about powering your NAS off Pajczur: ‘Startup DS220j when scheduled shutdown’ and then Telos: ‘You need a current cert for that? O my!’ got me thinking. My NAS setup has a straight forward OpenVPN connection and 2-step via an Authenticator; both on my iPhone. Supposing I...

    Is WebDAV the best option for remote access?

    Hi there We are a small company and we just started using Synology (DS920+). Some of us would like to have remote access to the files, maybe sometime working from home, and for this reason I used WebDAV to map the drives (we mostly work on MacOS devices) without going every time through DSM. I...

    Question Mount / unmount remote folder from script?

    I would like to be able to mount a remote folder (CIFS / SMB), perform an rsync, and dismount the folder. If not all that, at least check if the folder is mounted and mount it if not already mounted. (I've already got the rsync script running.) I have no trouble mounting the folder using the...

    Easiest way to implement Remote Desktop

    My team (3 of us) have been grabbing files from my NAS on the road. That works if we all remember to put back the modified files. We have an expensive add on to word that we'd like to use remotely. It is practically too expensive to buy for 3 remote machines. We have a dedicated PC for this...

    Question start local backup, resume as remote backup?

    I have a Synology DS416 with 5 TB of data I'd like to backup. I'd like to use a friend's Synology DS418 as the backup destination. The difficulty is my internet connection is low-bandwidth and capped per-month. It would take about 10 months to backup my 5 TB to my friend's DS418 over the...

    Connecting to DSM via remote desktop protocol?

    I have my Synology 218+ NAS isolated from the outside world on my LAN. The only ways I access my LAN from external sources is via VPN or an Apache Guacamole server, which acts as a RDP client into the various computers on my network. It seems very inefficient that I should have to connect to a...

    Question DiskStation DS118 Good Choice For Offsite Backup?

    Adding offsite backup to our setup (will sit in my office at home across town). Would using a DS118 with a single drive be ok? Am I shooting myself in the foot here? Plan to have one other onsite backup on an external drive hooked directly into our primary Synology. Thanks!
