How to sync folders of two XPenology NAS?

Recommended Posts

Hi to everyone. I'm trying to remote sync two folders of two Xpenology NAS (both last 6.1.4 DSM).
I understand that I have to install Cloud Station Server on the first Nas and Cloud Station ShareSync on the other Nas; on both nas I enabled the Rsync service (on port 22) and authorized the rsync service on a user (pippo). Pippo is an admin user and he has got r/w permitions on all folders.
On "server Nas" I selected which folders to share
On both Nas I forwarded these ports: 22 and 873 for external access.

 

The problem is that when open Cloud Station ShareSync and I try to make a connection to the "server NAS", using
Public IP of "server Nas"
user: pippo
password: pippo's password

 

This error is shown: ERROR on connection. Check your Lan settings and retry

I don't understand where is the problem... Do I have to forward others port?
Anyone can help me? Thank you for your support!

I'm pretty sure you have to specify the port number along with the ip address if you haven't done that already.  Same thing with remote connecting to any other service as the NAS is only listening on a specific port.  So if you have your router forwarding external port 22 to internal port 22...  "x.x.x.x:22" or something like that.

 

You could also forward ports that don't match.  I have a random external port forwarded to an internal 5000 so I can access my DSM externally (sometimes).

cloud station might also need tcp port 6690 open. also have you enabled on the server the folder to allow sync

Thank you! The problem was very very stupid: simply a type mistake! I typed 6630 instead of 6690 in the router's port forwarding page!
Thank you Dfds for this link, it could be very useful!

Do you know if there is any way to see the sync speed?

No worries, glad you got it sorted. I've not used cloud station so don't know if there's a way to see the sync speed.
