Accessing a file via CloudStation?

Unread post by DataCrypt » Wed Jan 03, 2018 7:43 pm

I have a current need to be able to access images remotely via HTTPS connection. My question is if I setup CloudStation on my Synology NAS (and it's using HTTPS via a certificate from LetsEncrypt) along with a DDNS (to access the NAS externally), would I be able to store some JPG or PNG images in this "CloudStation" and then access them via a shared link (like https://mycouldstation.domain.net/image.jpg)? I don't want the user accessing the link to be prompted to download the image, etc. Just opens up in the browser. Similarly this link could be in an HTML page like <img src="https://mycouldstation.domain.net/image.jpg">. I have no need to "sync" files to/from CloudStation - I'd just want to put them out there manually for a while when required.

Any help on how I can host these images on NAS (if CloudStation or another service would be better) and access them via HTTPS would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards
