Is there any reason you would port forward the web interface (port 80) to a Synology to be internet facing? I was auditing a system and discovered an admin did this and couldn’t think of a reason one would do this.
No, I would not recommend having your file server public facing. If there is a need to access it remotely, do so with a VPN. This is not just a suggestion about Synology, but really any file server on your network.
The admin should have just enabled the VPN server on the Synology… it’s super easy to set up (L2TP/IPsec or OpenVPN).
there are plenty of these showing up on Shodan with the web management internet facing.
That being said, there are plenty of others too.
Question that I have on the Active Backup for Business…more specifically the USB Media Creation. Do I need to make a USB for EVERY pc that i have being backed up? Or is the USB Boot media generic enough that I need just one.
Thank you in advance
As best I can tell, the USB / ISO recovery is generic and can be used with any machine.
That’s actually how I discovered it on a non standard port…
Good old Shodan, pays to be a paid up member.
