The trouble is, every time the NAS reboots, that IP address may change.
So that's why I'd prefer to access the NAS' data folder by name, for example http://mynas, instead.
What do I need to do to make that work?
- Set up a website on my internal network and access it with a domain name instead of IP -- this explains how to configure the host file, but that won't work because the NAS' IP address changes after reboot
- Google: how to access synology by name instead of ip -- wasn't helpful either because those search results explain how to access the NAS from the Internet
- Hardware: Synology DS212j
- Software: Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) 5.0
