On further investigation I thought it may be some problem with HTTP SERVICE SETTINGS (under DSM settings). So I unchecked the "automatic redirect to https" yet this didn't work either. It seems that Photostation is http only yet when you connect on the LAN it works fine however externally (Internet) you cannot go to the /photo directory. Seems like the php code is dodgy as https://
<EXTERNAL-IP:5001> works fine yet the coding in DS 4.0 redirects the Photostation icon to http://
Ok so I have been thinking I was crazy and made mention in a post but have been searching for this thread specifically. I am new to Synology and this has not worked since I have been playing with it.
My behavior is that I can get it to work over HTTP but it did not automagically open the HTTPS (which is all I am willing to open up externally) functionality .
I couple thing I have noted so far. First off... at least the above posting imples to me that they are attempting to hit the wrong port. The Photostation uses standard HTTPS 443 same as web station and mail station.

Second... Per my Control panel, Https Auto-redirection will not automagically work for this add-on.
Now from what I can tell... I should expect that enabling theHTTPS connection setting under the CP > DSM settings panel would enable photostation on 443... but it has not worked for me.
With all of this said ... I am pretty confident we could make it work via manual configuraiton... which I have done on real linux builds with a mild understanding of what I am doing, but was really hoping to not have to do here.
I read some people post that they got this working for one reason or another. Can someone confirm that this is suppose to allow access on port 443 once the HTTPS is enabled on the DSM.
If I have to go at it and hack up the .htaccess I may do so... or I may just start a proper Synology ticket. Either way I will post whatever happens to me on here.
In my reading there are some other security concerns with Photo Station as well... so maybe it is not even worth it.
