Matching SN/MAC on DSM 6.0.2 baremetal?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I'm about to migrate my XPEnology from DSM 5.2 to 6.0.2 today, running on an ASRock N3150-ITX.

 

Now I would like to know if there's chance to calculate a valid S/N using my real, given MAC-address? Because I only found ways to calculate random pairs of both, not being able to use an existing MAC.

 

The alternative is to flash my NIC with the new MAC-address to be able to use some Synology-services, but I'm afraid to mess up something while flashing a new MAC (I think that's a really serious thing, right?).

 

Any help or ideas on this?

 

Thanks a lot for your help!

 

Best regards

Mischa

Okay, I know this, but then I wouldn't be able to use Quickconnect and other services from Synology.

 

Honestly I don't know if there are other ways to connect to my NAS running DSM 6.0.2 without using Synology's own services - are there?

Maybe simply using port-forwarding eg.?

 

I really would like to avoid flashing my NIC.

 

So, it seems there is no way to calculate my S/N using my real MAC-address?

I don't know where are you getting this ideas from.

 

 

Community here has always suggested to use DDNS instead of Synology's services.

If you want to use synology services like Quickconnect you should buy a real synology box and "pay" for the services.

There is no need to calculate anything, to flash anything or to have a valid pair MAC and s/n to have DSM run.

 

If you wish to be able to access your NAS from the outside simply setup a DDNS in DSM. It will be exactly the same thing as having QuickConnect but you wont be rapping Synology and consequently you wont be giving Xpenology a bad reputation.

My router that's provided by my internet provider doesn't let me to open ports to use DDNS.

I had to buy an old Synology Nas and used its SN/ MAC to access QuickConnect. That's fair enough, right?

Your router wont let you to open port 80/443?

Yes, its fair because using quickconnect you will use not only DSM system but also synology's servers without fees. Is it fair enough for you to do that?

I'm using Verizon FIOS-G1100 and need a port forwarding rule to forward port 22 to my XPEno Nas but I couldn't. BTW, I'm using No-IP.

This is all you need to do. With no-ip you will have access to nas from internet

Never heard of a modern router that didn't allow you to configure port forwarding. In fact in took me less than 20 seconds on google to find your router model and understand how to configure port forwarding >>> http://screenshots.portforward.com/routers/Verizon/FiOS-G1100/Port_Forwarding.htm

 

Fair, not so sure unless you are not using the original NAS with QuickConnect.

Unless you know exactly why you are opening port 22 to the world I would advise against doing that. Instead I would recommend setting up a VPN with DSM and accessing SSH through VPN.

Thanks, that's what I did try before but had no luck.

I set

 

192.168.1.xxx tcp any -> "the port number"

udp any -> "the port number"

 

with 192.168.1.xxx is my Nas IP address. The problem is I really don't know what is "the port number" here to enter in the port field to see my XPEno from internet. I tried port "9" and somebody told me to try port "22" but got no luck either.

 

We here encourage people to use DDNS instead of QuickConnect. That's fine and great, but in fact, there is no instruction in the forum to guide people how use it properly.

I'm using 30-days trial of No-ip and plan to buy a 12-months plan. But I may change my mind unless I find out the way to setup port forwarding correctly.

Port 22 is for ssh, in most cases you dont need it to open in router. Standard ports to access DSM are 5000 for http and 5001 for https, but DSM has pretty nice tool which is port forwarding. You can forward only port 80 and/or 443 to your NAS and with port forwarding on NAS and subdomains you can access DSM, audiostation, videostation, download station etc thru subdomains. Its really very simple. Of course you can simply open port 5000 or 5001 on router.

 

In my case im using twoDNS. Its free ddns with wildcard option. FreeDNS also is nice to use with subdomains.

Let me restate this. Since you don't seem to understand why you want to open port 22, I think it is safe to tell you the following: Do not open port 22 on your router. You have been warned. Unless you know why, there is no need for that port to be opened to the world in the first place. All you need to start with are the ports to access DSM GUI and those are port 5000 and 5001 unless you modified those within DSM. That's about it to start with. You can then port forward other ports if you see the need for it.

 

Regarding DDNS there is no instruction here perhaps because this is not the best place to find such information. This can be found on Synology's forum as setting up a DDNS is an integral part of DSM features. Simply look at the External Access > DDNS in the Control Panel. In fact I made a short tutorial on how to set up a DDNS but it's in the French section. I think you can follow through as I added some pictures to make it easy to understand >>> http://xpenology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=21928&p=79177&hilit=DDNS#p79177

 

Also there is no need to buy any plan with NO-IP. There are several DDNS providers out there that are free: https://www.duckdns.org, https://www.nsupdate.info (these are the ones I use) or as stated earlier https://www.dtdns.com, https://www.twodns.de and https://freedns.afraid.org. See plenty of choices. The only thing I recommend is setting up 2 DDNS (or more if you are paranoid) so that if one goes down then you still have redundancy and you will still be able to connect to your NAS from outside.

 

You just need to be a bit curious and search and you'll get your answers.

Were you able to successfully upgrade from 5.2.x to 6.0.x using Jun's loader on your ASRock N3150ITX? My concern was the suppor of the Realtek nic.

 

Thx.
