Connection not secure error


Recommended Posts

Trying to get my new server access outside the home network. Have activated host name and all working using port 5500, as 5000 already being used.  But i am getting a connection not secure error, which is stopping me access with my mobile DS photo app. I have tried using port 5001 which the port was made open, without success.


What am I doing wrong, any ideas?

To be accessible from outside your local network, PhotoStation needs port 80 (http) or port 443 (https) to be forwarded in your router. Personally I only open the secured port. PhotoStation does not use the same secured port as the GUI's access. Pay close attention to what is mentioned in DSM network settings:

If you are ever in doubt what port is needed you can look at DSM's list of service ports: https://www.synology.com/en-global/knowledgebase/DSM/tutorial/General/What_network_ports_are_used_by_Synology_services 


You can also look in DSM's firewall to check what ports are being used for each service.


Also don't forget to configure PhotoStation accordingly:

There is another option where you could bypass all the above and that would consist of configuring your DSM as a VPN server and then accessing PhotoStation by VPN from DSPhoto. This is even more secure but it implies opening up a VPN connection each time you wish to access your photos through DSPhoto.
