    sharing folder using NFS for one linux user only

    Hi everyone, on my linux machine (Mageia) I would like one user (let's say, user1) to be able to access one directory on the NAS (DS220j). This directory should be mountable by user1. Do I need to define a user named user1 on the NAS (in DSM) ? Or shall I create another user (e.g. user1_NAS)...

    Very slow download speed from DSM web file sharing

    Hi, I'm facing very slow download speed when I share a file with someone using DSM "Share file" feature from the web gui (File station). I can workaround this by giving a direct access to DSM from internet (bypassing the reverse proxy) but it's not a setup I would like to make persistent. So...

    DSM 7.0 Problem sharing album from Synology Photos using reverse proxy

    Hi! This is my first post, so please forgive me if I do something wrong. I have a Synology DS916+ running DSM 7.0 Beta. (I know, it was a mistake to make the upgrade instead of running it as a virtual machine first to try it out). The most important application for me is Synology Photos. I am...

    USB file sharing ONLY - currently on DS213J (noisy HDD)

    Hi, I recently bought a DS213J which I'm using solely with an external USB device which has super/ military grade security. In a silent room the DS213J is very noisy, presumably due to it's disks. I'm not using disks for storage, although I understand they hold the OS. I have adjusted power...

    Cannot view videos using a shared public folder

    I have noticed that when I share a folder via a public link in Synology Drive 2.0, videos placed in this folder cannot be viewed by users when double-clicking them. A double-click on the video by a user (without a Drive user account) (in any browser on macOS at least) triggers a dialogue to...

    Info pwndrop to hide login screens when sharing files

    While sharing files using DSM’s “Share” that creates a link to be sent to the recipient is convenient, if someone deletes the “share” portion of the URL and tries the FQDM, they’ll land in your DSM’s login screen. I didn’t like that. For example, if the shared link looks like...

    Sharing Calendar's To Do lists

    I want to share 'to do' or reminder lists with some users. Previously I've done this using the calendar in Nextcloud so I know its possible in CalDAV. We're not using the web interface, everyone has desktop and iOS CalDAV apps. The Synology Calendar lets me share calendars nicely but it...

    Question Sharing files with Drive and not getting in trouble

    Hi everybody! I've got a Synology Drive question. Synology Drive doesn't appear to completely obfuscate filenames ... so if you share an MP3 file or something like that, the filename might be visible in the link. So when you first make the share link directly to a file it looks like this...

    Security advice when sharing files?

    In the past I've had a domain pointed at my DiskStation (DS1019+) and accessed DSM, Drive etc. via the domain name/HTTPS, but now I have sensitive work files on there and don't want to expose the Synology to the internet. So I no longer use the domain name and just use a VPN to access DSM...

    Is there a way how to inform user about a Note sharing?

    I would like to share some Notebooks with users of DSM. The problem is that the users are not informed about a new sharing (they do not used DSM web so they do not see the notification in the bubble). The best would be that the user gets an email notofication. Another problem with Notes - I...

    Tutorial Share file links 2019-04-20

    It took me a while to discover this feature when I first got my DiskStation. It’s very useful. Together with the “file request” option, they compliment each other for a very nice solution that allows you to interact with users who don’t have user accounts on your DS. Share file links video...
