It is advisable to change the default ports from (http) 5000 & (https) 5001 to something different for security reasons. Also, I recommend disabling the default admin account and creating a new account with admin capability. Again, for your security.

Is this a LAN URL issue or and external URL question? What are you now using? For example http://192.168.1.11:5000 ?
It's LAN URL and I'm using http://192.168.0.99:5000/

The default ports for browsing to DSM are 5000 for HTTP and 5001 for HTTPS.
Thanks for the reply, I will try changing the ports.

After changing for security reasons the ports for http and https then you can enable the appropriate selection on Control Panel for all connections to be automatically redirected to https.

I have already changed the administrator account to another one with admin privileges as you said.

This tab that you indicate I have it checked but in the browser I have the https crossed out, I just uploaded a photo in another post.

That's normal. IP addresses always produce this browser "warning". Use a domain name (with certificate) if it bothers you. It's of little consequence within your LAN.

Also, step away (Synology recommends you change these) from ports 5000/5001 if you need external access to your NAS.

So you have automatic redirect to https atm, with port still being 5001. As suggested maybe it would be best to change that to a non default value of your choice.

While the insecure error is normal in this situation, what needs to be done now is to set up a certificate that will validate that https connection, or simply ignore it (for internal usage) and allow it as an exception.

What do you mean I should change the 99 of the address?
