shared album asks for userid and password

Post by balma01 » Tue May 10, 2022 11:07 pm

I've created a shared allbun in photo station without any epiration date and without the password flag but when I point to the sharing link, it asks me for USERID and PASSWORD.

I have the same issue on photostation

I want to share some photo´s with family, but don´t want to create logins for everyone.

If I create a sharing link on file station, I can open it without login credentials, but then I can´t open the photo´s via the browser but have to download the files to see them..

Sounds like a great plan to get yourself ransomwared. Never ever expose your NAS to WAN!

Hi dolbyman
I do not expose my NAS to WAN
I've created a shared allbun in photo station accessing it from my LAN and I point the sharing link from my LAN.
The problem is that is asking me for USERID and PASSWORD and it sould not ask it !

If it's your home LAN just give everyone access (passwordless guest access) to a specific SMB folder

I havce some folders with everyone access but it doesen't solve my problem.
Please note that my problem is a "photo station" problem not a generic SMB sharing problem...

Is this a new problem? (i.e. did it ever work like that before)?
What version of photo station?

Likely, only QNAP can fix it if it is an actual issue (and not by design) so you may want to log the issue with support.
QNAP TS-563-16G 5x10TB Seagate Ironwolf HDD Raid-5 Triple NIC: 2x1GB 1x10GbE
QNAP TS-231P-US 2x18TB Seagate Exos HDD Raid-1 Dual 1GB NIC
