Synology NAS: Configure Static IP Addresses, Link Aggregation

October 15th, 2013 1 comment

As mentioned in early article on Jumbo frame, I bought a Synology Diskstation 1513+ NAS server and really like it. The NAS server comes with very rich features that I have just explored partially. One of my favorite features is its GUI which is Web based but feels like a desktop using the Ext Javascript framework. Besides basic functionalities, it also has appstore kind of extensibility. For example, you can install cloud storage to have your own dropbox without exposing your data on public cloud. I haven’t got time to explore all these yet, but will try them later.
