We have a nice new Synology DS218 box but how to get data in and out? This page will document known methods.

Login to Control Panel

Use this link for Quick Connect: http://quickconnect.to/WXANRLYZ You will need a UserID and Password to log into the NAS

Getting data in

  1. Sync - setup a sync task on Drive Client
  2. Backup - setup a backup task on Drive Client
  3. ftp - use site 72.188.170.26 using your ftp tool and enter your UserID and Password
  4. drag and drop onto the Synology user interface panel - once in the NAS you can see files with File Station and will be able to navigate to anywhere in the file structure. You should be able to drag and drop files from the finder (MAC) or File Explorer (Windows.)

Getting data out

  1. use the Synology user interface panel, click on a file then click ‘download’
  2. ftp - use site 72.188.170.26 using your ftp tool and enter your UserID and Password

Report generation

  1. Synology is quite poor at this
  2. Use SSH - Use this terminal command on Mac: > ssh admin@72.188.170.26 -p 22
