Client -> Server connection Quickconnect ID only?

Unread post by neven » Fri May 13, 2016 9:53 am

I'm connecting multiple Synology units to CMS Server using IP or FQDN and HTTPS port. Server adds connection fine but client adds server connection via Quickconnect ID which is totally unreliable lately. I want clients to use server FQDN and HTTPS port. Can I do that?

Yes you can. Any DDNS will be fine. You need to open the ports (5000 or 5001) on the destination router.

So Client CMS probes only default ports and needs both HTTP and HTTPS open? I was hoping that it will be smart enough to "see" that I'm using https://my.cms_server.name:custom_https_port when adding managed unit and would use that instead.

Are you serious? How should the router be able to know what port to forward to what device? Open the one you are using for your DS management.

I was not talking about router. Routers on both sides have HTTPS ports open and forwarded. Let me explain step by step to avoid further confusion:

1. I log in to my Synology NAS running CSM Host unit using FQDN and custom HTTPS port, lets call it https://host.fubar.com:6969
2. In CMS Server setup I execute Add server and type in CSM client address which is also FQDN on custom HTTPS port, lets call it https://client1.fubar.com:7069
3. On host side client CSM is added correctly in format https://client1.fubar.com:7069
4. BUT, when I log into client1 DSM and check CSM client settings it says it is connected to host trough quickconnect id, lets call it host.de.quickconnect.to

Now, my question is why CMS host isn't "smart" enough to inform CSM client that it uses FQDN and custom HTTP port used to log to that DSM at the first place or is there a way I can manually edit host information on client side? I want to do that because quickconnect is kind of unreliable lately and generates a lot of connect/disconnect messages in CSM.
