NAS Remote Access for Newbies: Part 4 - Reverse Proxy for Multiple NAS on a Single LAN - A discussion on how to configure multiple NAS on LAN from a newbie perspective

Preface​

This tutorial is a continuation of the Remote Access for Newbies series of tutorials, and continues the discussion started in Parts 1-3. While parts of this tutorial can stand on their own, it does reference an office building analogy used to describe your LAN in Part 1. If you are unfamiliar with the basics of your LAN or how to configure a reverse proxy, it’d be best to start with Parts 1-3 of the series:

Hi @NAS Newbie,

Lot's of work gone into those missives! I have been on a similar voyage of discovery in the last weeks and am now at the persuading my father stage so that he be sent a NAS and leaves it on 24/7 to receive my backups!
Really well put together; part iv looks very interesting for me personally, but a great series! Thank you.

Thanks! Everyone on this forum is super helpful, but it isn't always the easiest for a newbie to know where to start. Hopefully this provides some direction. Also, regarding your offsite backup, you can reference my thread on that if you haven't yet. I haven't completed setting it up yet so can't confirm that it all works, but it might give you ideas. Critique my backup structure...

Nice job. I'll suggest an alternate reverse proxy method I use for multi-NAS.

I created a second DDNS for NAS2. Let's call that magic.synology.me. Since both NAS are facing the same WAN address, 210.61.203.200 in your example, entering remotely...

https://magic.synology.me

brings me to NAS1 (based on router forwarding rules), not NAS2... so a small reverse proxy entry on NAS which will route...

https://magic.synology.me to 192.168.1.6 (NAS2's LAN IP), solves the problem preserving the DDNS domain for NAS, instead of assigning a wildcard domain to NAS2.

Easy-peasy. Different strokes for different NAS.
