anyone had any luck setting up docker edge agent on the synology to allow another instance or portainer (running elsewhere on the LAN - NOT for WAN access)?

i followed the guide here


and, although it did sucessfully add the agent to the synology, whenever i tried to access it via portainer running on another local device it would fail to connect, giving a vague error saying "Environment Unreachable"

I run it on my self. Single "main" Portainer host, with other docker hosts connected via the agent.


Last heading in this article.

took a look at that article, started at "Add Docker host to your Portainer using an agent"

Stage 1 - completed fine, i can see the container running in docker on the synology
Stage 2 - portainer has changed a few of the settings and pages since the article, but was essentially the same as mentioned in the youtube video.

Environments > Add Environment
Docker > Start Wizard
Select Edge Agent
entered the name - unsure what "Name" it's asking for here , name of the NAS or name of the portainer host?
portainer server URL - http://192.168.50.8:9000 (which is the IP port of the device portainer is running on)
click create - not a lot happens after that

if i then go back out the "home" page on portainer i have a second environment in the list, but clicking on that doesn't do much other than loading an additional config page.

should note that what i'm trying to do it add the synolody docker to my existing portainer instance running on a pi, so that i can manage both pi and synology docker containers from the 1 portainer instance.

if i enter the IP/port of the edge agent container
https://192.168.50.2:9001 then it still doesn't do anything (portainer requires that either http or https be in the server URL, so the image below shows what i'm entering.

i then click "create", and it then requires to me to create a new container on the synology with the edge key embedded, but that article doesn't mention doing that, as step 1 has aleady created an edge agent container?

Code:
docker run -d \
  -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
  -v /var/lib/docker/volumes:/var/lib/docker/volumes \
  -v /:/host \
  -v portainer_agent_data:/data \
  --restart always \
  -e EDGE=1 \
  -e EDGE_ID=348fd6fa-8054-4809-80c7-74f08d78e0fd \
  -e EDGE_KEY=aHR0cDovLzE5Mi4xNjguNTAuMjo5MDAxfDE5Mi4xNjguNTAuMjo4MDAwfDExOmY1OmQ0OjY5OjRjOjRkOjNlOjg4OmQ2OjI0OmZhOjlkOmQ5OjdhOmQ5OmQwfDEy \
  -e EDGE_INSECURE_POLL=1 \
  --name portainer_edge_agent \
  portainer/agent:2.14.2

the synology is not "local" though.
i'm running portainer on a rapsberry pi, along with other containers.

i have a few "intel" based containers running on the NAS and want to be able to control them via portainer running on the NAS.

ok well something isn't working as it should then.
not sure if it's related to portainer changing the UI so that "endpoints" is not called "environments", and the set up structure being different.

Hmm not sure what to say, but this is how I connect my LAN-accessible Docker hosts. Ofc they are running the portainer/agent image and on the default 9001 port (because it's free I haven't changed it).
