Why Can't I Access My NAS in Windows?

Episode 1824 (38:36)

Henry from Los Angeles, CA
Synology Nas

Henry has a Synology NAS at home and at the office. But he's having issues with Windows users in his company being able to access it remotely. How can he do that? Leo says that remote access via SMB may have a security issue that causes Synology not to support it. There is an open-source version called CIF that should work, however. It can also support NFS. Leo can log into his using Windows, Mac and Linux with no problem. Make sure you have all the ports open that you need. CIF uses 139 or 445. NFS 5005,5006. Synology also supports SSH. That will definitely work and could be the key to all of this. 

Leo has also turned on https using Let's Encrypt to make it more secure.
