FTP connection to Synology NAS

I am unable to connect to my Synology NAS using Catalyst Browse.  I am using the Places tools, "Add remote server" tool.


I have set up the NAS for access to the required share via ftp, but I cannot find the settings required to access it from Catalyst Browse.  There is no help provided about the required settings in the on-line help for Browse.  It is not possible to enter the full ip address of the NAS, as there appears to be a limit on the characters that can be used for this.


Whatever settings I try I always receive the same error message "Failed to connect to diskstation due to time out".


Can anyone offer help with the settings required, please?

Re: FTP connection to Synology NAS

Hi stablesgh,


Welcome to the forums and thank you for the question!


Can you mount this device directly Windows Explorer/Finder?  If so, I would recommend trying to access the NAS that way, and locate it in the Devices tab in Catalyst Browse.


Let me know if this works for you.


Thank you,

Re: FTP connection to Synology NAS

After a number of further attempts, my diskstation was recognised - I do not know what I did differently to make it work.

Once recognised it seems to be there permanently.

Thanks for the suggestion. i will keep it in mind if problems re-occur!
