Synology set as default gateway
Looking at the dhcp settings on a synology router
I finally had a few moments to test out the mixed-environment Synology backup workflow that I’d been wanting to try, but I needed to make some fast changes to some boxes that I hadn’t used in a while. I had no idea I’d have to reschedule it once again.
[2017.06.13 update. For this exercise, I’ll assume your Synology is linked to a router/switch rather than being directly connected to a device. If you connect the Synology to a device that isn’t running DHCP, you’ll get a 169.254.X.Y address, which means it won’t connect to the Internet and these instructions won’t work.]
Yeah, indeed. “Connection failed,” says the bad. The error “Please check your Internet Connection” is shown. Many a poor soul has been perplexed by this problem. According to legend, the Ancient Mayans are the only ones who have successfully overcome this devilish dilemma, as they were also able to count to 2012 and start over without fearing the end of the world.
If it isn’t already visible, go to the control panel (that’s the icon I showed above). Then you’ll want to search for the “Network” button. It resembles a small house perched on top of a sewer line (which, if you know anything about networking, is entirely appropriate):
How to set a static ip address and renaming your server
My NAS’s DNS name is tag-ds1815. I entered the correct information and chose Trusted Domain from the Management Mode tab, but the program just sat there for a long time before failing.
However, when I tested the Computers OU under AD Users and Computers on my DC, it showed up as a computer with two separate system names, one as tag-ds1818 and the other as tag-ds1815CNF:7956014c-06a2-437f-9f5f-9cda762671f2.
Tag-ds1815 has three separate DNS entries: 169.254.104.24, 169.254.106.83, and 169.254.216.77. I found out that those are the IPs that are allocated via DHCP on the disabled interfaces, but why would they be registered on my AD DNS if they are disabled? The only active interface is LAN1, which has a static IP address, but I’m not sure what the “Set as default gateway” option means.
Dhcp isn’t used to assign 169 IP addresses. When a computer can’t locate a DHCP server to give it a contract, it assigns one to itself. As a result, the system is using DNS to register unused interfaces with self-assigned IP#s.
How to find ip address of synology nas diskstation
IPv6 should be disabled. Unfortunately, IPv6 connections over VPN are not supported by Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM). Disable IPv6 first to avoid IPv6 leaks. Open the Synology DSM Control Panel to do so. Pick Network Network Interface from the drop-down menu. Select the LAN gui and then press the Edit button at the end.
Giving the VPN profile a meaningful name in the General Settings stage (in the example Frankfurt). Enter your user name and password for Perfect Privacy. Pick one of the OpenVPN configuration files you downloaded in the first step by clicking Browse next to Import.ovpn file. Our recommendation: To get the best pace, choose a place that is as close to you as possible. Since this information is already in the.ovpn register, the CA certificate field must be left blank. Next should be selected.
Enable the checkbox in the Advanced Settings stage. When the VPN link is lost, use the default gateway on the remote network and reconnect. To complete the setup and return to the Control Panel, click Apply.
Create a VPN link Pick the VPN link you just added in the Control Panel and press Attach at the top. The icon will turn blue after a few seconds, and the status will change to Linked.

Configure port forwarding to remotely access your synology
Please notice that installing Monocle Gateway using Docker on a Synology NAS is an advanced and complex topic that can only be attempted by advanced users who are familiar with Docker and advanced networking. Users attempting this mission should be familiar with networking, routing, Docker, SSH, and Synology NAS administration in general.
Monocle Gateway as a Docker container on the Synology NAS needs more effort than a standard Docker host. The main issue is that Monocle Gateway must listen on port 443 (as dictated by Amazon), and the Synology NAS has already reserved and is using port 443 for itself, with no way to change it. As a result of the port dispute, we’ll need to configure some advanced networking solutions for the Docker container that the Synolog Docker GUI software doesn’t help. This means we’ll have to configure the Docker container using text files and launch it from the terminal shell/SSH. In the end, we’ll allocate a secondary static IP address to the network interface used by the NAS to connect to the local/private network, and the Monocle Gateway docker container will listen on this new static IP address rather than the NAS’s current host network address, which is already listening on port 443. The macvlan networking options for a docker container are used in this setup.
