New to Synology with a DS220+. Where to begin…
Everything was pretty straight forward and appear to have the apps working as needed and external access is working when using QuickConnect. QuickConnect is convenient and fantastic, and QuickConnect also has a few limitations when it comes to how apps interact remotely.
Looking to set up an external subdomain to point to the server. While I have been pouring through loads of tutorials on the topic something keeps getting tripped up which I am guessing is somewhere in the port-forwarding space.
Made a ton of progress and now just spinning…so many rabbit holes and each empty.
Also a little overwhelming now and think getting the dynamic url forwarder working to synology admin page would be the next hiccup to resolve.
OBJECTIVE: CUSTOMER URL FOR EXTERNAL ACCESS FOR…
- AFP access to mount server from remote network (& smb if required for other apps)
- HTTPS access to admin page
- Primarily for iOS Files and various applications to access seamlessly
- Everything secured w/certificates and working through VPN.
Certificates reserved for next step and after that VPN…both of these are disabled for now.
- Apple Time Capsule
- Port forwards from pre Synology hardware that appear to work…
- Hardware mapped to MAC IDs (except synology)
- Mac desktop running BigSur 11.1
- Synology DS220+ running DSM 7.0-41890 (same issues on previous version)
- Dynamic DNS relay
- Custom domains available (have a few)
- Firewall / VPN disabled on Synology
- VPN disabled on Mac
- Synology services internally (all)
- Outside access to Synology DS via QuickConnect (browser/iOS “DS file” and Drive)
- Dynamic DNS relay (think it works as it requests asks for credentials, however see below)
Evidenced by request for credentials when using Connect to Server + DynamicDNS url
- Outside access to Synology DS via dns forwarder as credentials not accepted…see below…
- Expecting more to add here…first things first to get forwarder to the synology admin page.
- Assigning synology Mac ID in Time Capsule seems to screw things up…
- Assigining a fixed IP via Time Capsule and/or Synology seems to screw things up…
- To be added
SMB/AFP ERROR VIA CONNECT TO SERVER
This appears to connect in so far as a screen appears requesting credentials. From there, however, the following error…and error which appears could be from anything…
“The version of the server you are trying to connect to is not supported. Please contact your system administrator to resolve the problem.”
This might seem like a lot for anyone reading…that or people understand and either something easy to those w/more experience, or still a lot either way. Any support is appreciated…
