Hmm, using your phone, you want to access your NAS from the internet, or from your home LAN?

What app are you using to access your photo station? Is it the synology DS Photo+ app?
Hi mooz, my intention was to access the nas outside my home network, anywhere in the public and i was using DS Photo+ app on my android phone. Just a quick update i manage to access the nas using the Photo+ app when connected to my home wifi but once i switch to my 4g network it cant be done thanks for ur help

homeplug is the main bottleneck for you. I also got that kind of speed with 200mbps homeplug.

unless you plug in direct to the NAS, quite impossible to get anything above 30MB for DS413j.


Hey guys, just did a little real world test of transferring a huge file from my DS413J (About 5gb) connected via homeplug to my PC and the speed isn't looking too good.

On average I am getting 5 - 6.5 mb/s, most of the review I read on DS413J are getting 30mb/s and above.

Any idea why I am getting such sucky transfer speed?

sorry for the late reply, you can try the following:

1) Set your NAS to a static/fixed ip.
2) Go to your NAS settings > application portal, check what your DS photo (running on the NAS) is using which port
3) Go to your NAS settings > firewall > Allow all ports OR if you feel unsafe, just allow the port that DS photo is running
4) On your router, forward the port your DS photo is using, to your NAS static ip
5) Wait. Your router might take as long as half a day to a full day just to forward your port. For mine (starhub given router), it took half a day just to open and forward the port

6) Check if your port is open, can use this Open Port Check Tool. If it is successful/opened, everything should work.

7a) If you do not have dynamic dns service signed up, the only way you can access DS photo via the internet is to find out what is your ISP given IP address. Key that ip address into your android DS Photo app, along with the port used.

7b) If you have dynamic dns, log into your ddns account, and make sure that the DDNS points to your ip address. In addition, you need to go to your NAS settings > DDNS > insert all your settings.

Anyway if any part of what i say is wrong, please correct me, then at least i know xie xie

USB3 if possible.

If u know linux commands, plug in directly to 1 of the bay, ssh in and manually mount it, then manually use command line to copy

Setup a 1812+ with 4pc 3TB for the company. Now on DSM 4.2 running CloudStation, VPN server (pptp and openvpn), phpBB and OpenERP. Registered with Startssl for a SSL cert.

Have not tried out others like Qnap, etc. but I think the Synology is really excellent.

Activated ssh few days back to edit some configs, and a few hours later, the AutoBlock IP blocked out and locked the IP of something from Mexico (or somewhere like that) which tried to login as root.

My passwords are usually strong (> 12 chars/numbers) so no problems. Also disabled ssh service since not using normally and stopped the port forward too.

So - new users - make your admin passwords strong and activate the firewall and auto block. And don't open your ports unnecessarily.

Hi everyone
RAID/NAS noob here. I have ZERO experience in NAS/RAID stuffs. I have read some online suggestions and now with suggestions from all of you, I will be able to make better decision.
----------------------------------

I need some expert advice on getting the right Synology 2 or 4 bays device and accessories. I will need minimum 3TB to store all my current data.

I have 3 computers. Have LAN port, No internet and No WIFI dongle. I want 2 to 3 computers to be able to access the drive at the same time.

What will be the best setup and what are the things that I should get?

Hope some of you can help.

Thank you very much!
