Mount Remote Folder

Unread post by DanielD » Fri Aug 05, 2011 1:14 pm

Is it possible to share content between 2 distant Diskstations using "Mount Remote Folder", or any other way?

I try to have a secure way to share files between my DS109 and my brother's DS411+ii located in another country. So far I found it nearly impossible (just as described in this other topic ... 10&t=20011). For the moment I extract the FTP path from his server, replace manually all the "%20" by spaces in the url and then paste it, prefixed with my credentials in the Download Station, ...fastidious, and no secure (

The ability to mount remote folders in DSM 3.2 looked like a possible solution but...

I can't mount any CIFS folder from the remote DiskStation even with port UDP 445 openned and properly forwarded on both sides. (I even did it for 137, 139 but I suppose/hope they're not needed!)

Any help much appreciated,

DS213+ - DSM 4.3

Did you find any solution?
Is it perhaps possible to use the VPN function to connect the two NAS servers?
