    Synology NAS problem & question

    I recently migrated from Windows to Ubuntu (KDE).

    The problem:
    I own a Synology NAS which I ca'n login to like I did on Windows. To get to the admin I accessed https://somename:5001 with a browser, but in Ubuntu that page doesn't exist. In windows I'm in default "WORKGROUP" same as defined in samba config under Ubuntu. I don't have a certificate so I turned that off, so I could access it via http://somename:5000 but no luck. Anyone had similar experience? Maybe I need to configure that 5001 and 5000 port in Ubuntu (if, yes => how)?

    The Question:
    How I can mount shared drives on that NAS?? I can access them with Samba but there I have limitations like I can't play video from it. Probably I need to turn on SSH acces on NAS and mount drives or something similar?

    Try the IP address instead of the hostname. For example:
    https://192.168.0.1:5000

    Connect with Windows, then find the IP address by looking on your router DHCP status, or snoop it with tcpdump or ettercap or some such.

    Can you ping the name and get an IP back OK?
    Can you ping the IP and get replies?
    Can you telnet to the network socket and get a connection (Run "telnet somename 5000" in a terminal)?

    If I ping in windows I get ip6 address

    Telnet returns:
    telnet: could not resolve somename/5000: Temporary failure in name resolution
    telnet: could not resolve somename/5001: Temporary failure in name resolution

    You could use the IPv6 address to access the server but if you want a more customary IPv4 address specify that in your ping on Windows:
    Code:
    ping hostname -4

    thanx, now I can access my nas with url https://192.168.0.13:5001/

    How to deal with this if I didn't had windows at disposal?

    Re: Synology NAS problem & question

    It's my understanding that Synology NAS is Apple friendly so you should be able to ping it with it's mDNS hostname in Linux:

    Code:
    ping -c3 hostname.local
    EDIT: Most of the posts I see on this device have the host name of diskstation so you would use diskstation.local. Don't know if that is the default?

    Re: Synology NAS problem & question

    Under newtwork in synology control panel I had to turn on "Enable customized domain" and set it as "synology". After I've done that I was able to ping it and get the ip which I don't need anymore because I can connect to it via https://synology.local/

    This is all fine but I managed to set this because I found admin IP with help of Windows. If I didn't had it, how I could find that IP ? Is there a local ip scan ot something similar?
