    Remote file access on Synology NAS w/double-NAT & static IP

    If I set up VPN access is this an issue?

    I freaking hate USB type C connectors.

    Pixel 2 here, had this issue as well. Multiple aggressive cleanings with a needle got out a bunch of lint and it helped. Now the charger stays plugged in, before I cleaned it it was super finnicky and would fall out with the slightest touch.

    Remote file access on Synology NAS w/double-NAT & static IP

    My networking friend was able to help me out yesterday, tldr is I'm dumb. To set the static IP on the USG we just had to assign it and DNS. Done! ISP router is no longer an issue. And you are correct, now I just need to set up VPN and we should be ready to rock.

    NAS for small business

    Nice thanks guys. Yep it might be DOA but the seller has been responsive & helpful as well. I'll try opening the cover to see if anything is loose, then button it up and let it run for 20-30 minutes to see if it will fix itself. If not it's return time.

    NAS for small business

    Started setting everything up & may have an issue with my ebay-sourced S2500. When I plug it in the fans spin up, all port LEDs flash, but I get nothing from the power, status or stack LEDs or the LCD screen. Fans just spin as long as its plugged in. Does that mean its DOA? Or is there anything...

    Stuck trying to setup NAS remote file access

    Ha thanks guys, message received. I'm changing plans a bit and will set this up at the office before configuring so that I only have to get the networking part dialled in once. Once I have a gameplan I'll share it so that you all can give me notes before I try again. Appreciate the feedback so far!

    Stuck trying to setup NAS remote file access

    So I should remove the port forwarding settings I added and follow this instead?: https://www.synology.com/en-us/knowledgebase/DSM/help/VPNCenter/vpn_setup Will this allow me to map network drives on remote computers?
