After the container is running you can login with guacadmin/guacadmin.

If ports are blocked by firewall you can still connect over ssl (443) when you use reverse proxy and you are not home for example.

So this is a viable option for people who don't own a Synology Router.

ah ok. Makes sense and also mitigates the need for opening 3389 for rdp external.

Nice. Good access to my Win10 Pro PC. I had some "custom scaling" issues initially but those seem resolved w/Chrome. Gotta go back with Edge and retest. Maybe a Teamviewer replacement for me? But darn, that "Shut Down... " menu is still missing.

with reverse proxy in NAS it doesn’t matter what brand of router is in usage, except routers w/o NAT of SSL port - in this case is better such router put into wastebasket

I always find it best, when I need remote Win access, to use RDP. Nothing beats the speed of it. Ofc opening 3389 on the internet is a bit risky, so say the least, but a VPN before that solves that. In my personal experience, this works best.

That's correct but on my work pc I am not allowed to create a VPN connection other then the one of the company and then this is a good solution for me.

Also true. Should have posted, where it can be applied.
