In my on going obsession to privatize my data exposure, I’ve set up VPN Plus Server on my Synology router. Works great, and allows me to close external access to certain applications and services on the NAS.

I really need the new Synology Drive On-demand Sync to be added to the macOS client and I think I’ll be ready to drop Dropbox to the free tier.

I’ve been fighting with Resilio for 3 days off and on trying to get it to use the Let’s Encrypt certificate that I use for my NAS. Every other service picks the cert up and uses it, but Resilio isn’t working. Contacted support so hopefully they can help.

I’m amazed at how much faster syncing DEVONthink databases to WebDAV on the Synology is compared to iCloud and Dropbox. It’s ridiculously faster than Dropbox, and even faster than iCloud, especially the initial sync. I’m a little disappointed in myself that I didn’t move sooner only because I thought of moving about 8 months ago and kept putting it off, oh well lesson learned.

In other news, I’m working on two posts, one regarding what I use my Synology for, and the other about how I am moving away from storing data on company servers where I have no control over that data. Hope to have at least one up tomorrow and the other by the end of this week.

Set up WebDav on my Synology and changed a couple of DEVONthink databases over to the WebDav for syncing. It’s ridiculously fast, and now I’m thinking of moving more of my databases over.
