Remote NAS Backup - TCP/IP configuration

Unread post by TheFriendlyCoach » Wed Nov 29, 2017 8:15 pm

I'm considering purchasing a second Synology NAS which should serve as remote backup for my home NAS. I would like to place the remote NAS (using Hyper Backup Vault) in my work office. However, there I have no idea of how the LAN is configured and I have no access to do e.g. router port forwarding.

So my question is: What are the TCP/IP requirements for the remote NAS running Hyper Backup Vault? Should it be accessible from the internet (e.g. using a DDNS and port forwarding) or is it the remote NAS running Hyper Backup Valut that initiates the TCP/IP traffic towards my local NAS (which indeed is accessible from the internet)?

Unfortunately I have not been able to find this info in the Synology Knowledge database.

You're so right,thanks. I should have found that. So, now I have configured a DS216j for remote backup. Works so smoothly.

hi, sorry if this has already been answered but i cannot seem to find it. we have 2 Synology DS218 systems. one at the local location and other offsite. i am trying to setup the hyper backup from one Synology to the other. might be stupid but i have copied the IP addresses listed in the information on one of the synologies to the hyper backup IP address and user names etc but it just will not connect. i'm not too sure what i am missing but it surely shouldn't be so difficult.
thanks

Did you install HyperVault on the destination server? And did you open port 6281?
