I’m attempting to set up external access for a couple services on my Synology DiskStation. I have a cert created from LetEncrypt (using the DSM’s GUI to do so) and I can access https://mysynology.synology.me:5001 just fine but any of my other externally accessible ports are only accessible via HTTP. Otherwise they complain:

“This site can’t provide a secure connection.”

I’m guessing there’s a config error somewhere that I’m missing but I haven't found any information in any guides.

  • Is the cert a wildcard certificate for a hostname? What is the hostname associated with the cert. – Giacomo1968 Apr 18 at 21:56
  • So far as I know it's not a wildcard cert. Hostname is a Synology.me name, similar to th example but without a port specified. For some reason I need to specify a port when accessing the URL. All ports work but only the 5001 port works over HTTPS. – dougoftheabaci Apr 18 at 22:08
  • You have forwarded the port to your device on your router? Additionally, you have gone into Synology and enabled any external access options that might exist? – Ramhound Apr 18 at 22:18
  • Yes. As I said, the ports are accessible, just over HTTP but not HTTPS. – dougoftheabaci Apr 19 at 0:07

    @Giacomo1968 Not from there specifically but that's the process I used. I didn't enter a wildcard value. – dougoftheabaci Apr 20 at 1:28
