Remote acces with MacOS Finder

Unread post by lobsterboy » Thu Sep 13, 2018 5:18 am

Hi all,

I'd like to be able to access my NAS remotely and use the MacOS Finder to browse/open/save files etc, just like I do when at home on the local network. I've been able to Log in via QuickConnect but it doesn't allow me to browse with the Finder. Is there a way to do this?

I have installed WebDAV but have had no luck logging in remotely with an IP address.

Synology DS148
MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6

Thanks

Hi

I will suggest that you make a VPN connection to your DS, rather using everything else, if possible.

The safest way to access your DS from outside.

Same question / problem. When I'm outside of my home, I would like to use a VPN. I also have a subscription with Purevpn but what I don't understand is the difference between set and use the VPN through the VPN Server app on the Nas or configure on the Nas on Control Panel / Network / Network Interface tab / Create a Vpn Profile...

I search and follow this guide also, is it secure like this?

Ummm, I'm so so confuse and I really don't understand how to do it perfectly. I'm outside my house and I want to search something on my Nas. So, from where and with what tool I can connect to it through a VPN?

Thanks <3
