Now that’s very, very interesting. I checked the KB you referenced (thanks) but I’m still skeptic. I was hoping that you’ve personally tried it. I should try it and see.
Yes. My skepticism that it won’t work is proven. I tried a few things. The generated link includes the DSM port no matter what.File Station is configured by Synology to use default DSM entry point.
That’s interesting. Does it mean that I can generate a share link with no ports referenced? That’s what I’m after.Drive it’s using RP address.
Yes, after you configure your reverse proxy parameters for those apps/services1) If I purchase a domain name and host it using one of these low cost hosting sites, will that be the same as a DDNS in regards to typing in the website url and being correctly forwarded to the relevant app dependant on the subdomain I used?
Dreamhost comes to mind. Cloudflare as well.2) If so, can anyone recommend a hosting site that allows you the full control necessary to setup reverse proxy and subdomains?
I know this post is rather old, but.. Nginx can act as a reverse proxy AND as a tcp/udp loadbalancer, e.g. to balance TLS-Passthrough traffic (=not terminated in the reverse proxy) or any binary protocoll. Now that I know where custom configurations can be added, It is safe to say: it's possible. Though, domain specific configuration is only possible if the connection is wrapped in TLS (only then it will provide the required SNI information in the TLS extensions). This guy made a nice overview of the possible trickeryGJ.
To bad that Synology Reverse Proxies cannot work on layer 4..
