Hi there, just bought SynoDS to use with my new 410 - very pleased with it whilst I am inside my own network - however using it from outside is a different matter!
You really need to write *much* better instructions on how to use it and how to create the connection from outside, simple step by step instructions, preferably with screen shots, until them the app will be useless for the majority of users - remember most people won;t be as technical as you.
Hope you can do this soon and I'm looking forward to more updates and a better user guide
The problem about writing a guide for opening port to the "outside world" is that the way to do really depends on the router brand you have !
Here is a fast generic "how-to" just for you
First check the IP of your Synology NAS, and your public IP (the one you are connected to the internet with, http://www.ip-adress.com/
could help you to find it). Note : make sure that Synology's device IP will not change ! For this, either use static IP in Synology's configuration or enable DCHP reservation by MAC address in your router.
For exemple purposes, we will use 192.168.1.23 for Synology's device IP and 126.96.36.199 as a public IP !
Now open your router configuration page (check your router user guide for how to do it).
In your router configuration page, configure NAT forwarding (also called port forwarding). In this exemple I'll configure the router so the Synology device will be available when connection to 188.8.131.52 at port 1234 :
As local IP address, set 192.168.1.23 and as local port set 5000 (or 5001 if you plan to use SSL), as public port set 1234. If you have specific configuration for both TCP and UDP protocols, fill both protocols with the same informations !
You may have to reboot your router for the new configuration to be applied !
Now use your web browser and check that you can connect to http://184.108.40.206:1234
(your public IP and public port), use https if you are using SSL. If everything if ok, then in SynoDS enter the following informations :
Address : 220.127.116.11 (your public IP)
Port : 1234 (your public port)
and SSL on or off depending on what you have configured previously
I hope it will help !
