That’s a tough one. You’ve said it, QuickConnect goes through Synology.
Well as @WST16 already said, opening up to the internet is always a problem. In case of DDNS there are several things that I think need to be doneRusty could you do a brief on what we should do to harden and tighten security; including some best practices with one way vs another.
Yes that should work if your router is your LAN DNS server as well.I could add the ddns name into the routers dns, so when the ddns is typed locally it should route to the local ip right?
In what way exactlly?Especially if I try and change the default dsm ports to something different
That is true... I have stoped getting them on email and switched to push notifications but not for reports anyway. I view them on demand.I’m also trying to make the notifications play nice when having reports emailed. The notifications will list the quickconnect, ddns, and local ip links.
Def agree with @Siewert_JR. I have only a few ports open up. One is VPN rest is pushed via a revers proxy (for services that I do want to be out there and not force my users to use VPN). But in general I favor VPN above all of them.That's why i only connect true VPN.
Via QuickConnect was when i had moment to think about it way to easy to get in and communicate with the NAS.
As i run my own VPN at home and only need my internal network ip addresses and no need to connect from the outside.
In what way exactlly?
These are my recommendations. If you need any detail info on this I/we can make a Resource tutorial on how to make all of this work.
That is correct. One reason why I’m working on a syno 101 5 post series on my blog on the matter of setting up syno for beginners. Main reason is coz their Kb is detail but not made as a tutorialPlease do make a tutorial. I find that while Synology's resources are good at explaining individual components, they do not bring them all together into a comprehensive solution very well, especially for rookies like myself.
