Important Notes:

There are a few subtle but important differences between Syncrify running on QNAP vs a regular Linux machine:
  • The default HTTP port on QNAP is 7800. On a regular server it is 5800. This change was done to avoid port collision with other services like VNC on QNAP.
  • The HTTPS port is turned on by default and will listen on 7900 allowing you to connect using the following URL:

    https://yourNasHost:7900

  • The default installation path on a regular Linux machine is /opt/Syncrify. However, this value on QNAP is /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/Syncrify on QNAP. This is important in case you need to read/modify some advance configuration or access the log files to troubleshoot common problems
