View volume1 as a share, or folders outside of volume1 via Samba

> vi /usr/syno/etc/smb.conf
> /usr/syno/etc/rc.d/S80samba.sh restart

i.e. ...

  1. Enable the Command Line Interface
  2. Login to the Command Line Interface as root
  3. Use vi to edit the file /usr/syno/etc/smb.conf, e.g. enter the command "vi /usr/syno/etc/smb.conf". See Basic commands for Linux vi Editor if you are new to vi. The format of the file should be fairly obvious, e.g. if you want to share "/volume1" copy one of the existing shares such as "[music]" and then change the title to something like [Volume1_Dir] and change the path statement to "path=/volume1". Save the file and exit vi.
  4. Restart the samba daemon, e.g. enter the command "/usr/syno/etc/rc.d/S80Samba.sh restart"
  5. Exit the Command Line Interface
  6. Reboot the NAS (Dont reboot! It stops working.)
  7. Finished

Change SSH Port

> /usr/syno/etc.defaults/rc.d/S95sshd.sh stop
> vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config
> /usr/syno/etc.defaults/rc.d/S95sshd.sh start

When editing the sshd_config change the line #Port 22 to Port 10022 or some other port number.

  • Block FTP: Insert ftpd : xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx : deny
  • Block SSH: Insert sshd : xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
