Newbie wanting to sync NFS to Synology NAS

Unread post by Grumbleweed » Tue Sep 25, 2018 4:27 pm

I have a router with NFS shares. Is there an easy way to copy anything new on the share to a folder on the NAS, either as things change on the NFS share, or on a schedule? I have looked around but cannot find any useful info on this.

I have now started looking at rsync but not too sure how to get started with that as it's not installed on my router. I have copied the rsync files on to the JFFS partition but not sure how to run rsync as a client. I have installed Hyper Backup on the NAS but this looks to be more backing up from the NAS rather than to the NAS.

I just want a simple solution
