  1. i wrote an article to go forward this pb … remote access.

    Synology NAS are easy to set up, and there is one more thing to do …

    You have to open port (NAT) of your box, and permit services to be reachable from evywhere !


  2. my nas is on the second router.

    The first router is built in modem from my ISP. and the second one is asus router.
    all connected through cable but om different floor.

    Try to set the DDNS but i think it got blocked. i dont know how to set up on the router, any suggestion?
