Hi everyone. 1st thank you for the hard work on xpenology project.

 

I have installed and updated 5.2 on an old tower I had to learn about a cheaper way of having a synology server. It is working great i have hooked a network camera up to it too.

 

My first question is why do i need to create a new mac ID or serial number I am still not clear on it?

 

The other question is about access from the wan. I don't need to have access to it from the web. I am trying to see where to go to make sure the access from the web is disabled, could some one please advise.

 

I am having a lot of fun learning

 

Thank you

1. To make Quickconnect and other Synology service working.

 

2. If you are behind router, you don't have to do anything (since all ports are blocked except those you open). If you are not go to Security-> Firewall on DSM and set your settings.
