Upload files larger than 4GB

Post by majkelm » Tue Dec 08, 2020 10:34 pm

I use myQnapCloud via webbrowser
I cannot upload to my device files larger than 4GB
Is this limited by technology or I can change something to do that ?

Regards
Michał

stop that whole thing alltogether

NEVER expose your NAS to WAN (unless getting hacked is your thing)

P3R said here it worked

viewtopic.php?t=154413

unclear where the limitation then comes from (I never use the browser upload feature of file station..even from local)

best to ask qnap via ticket

thx dolbyman, but still my question remains without answer

you wrote "I never use the browser upload feature of file station..even from local" - do you upload remotely ib other way than web myqnapcloud ?

nothing is impossible

but if you would elaborate what exactly you mean by that (double nat..cgnat..?)..solutions can be suggested

I know that everything is possible, but sometimes it is not worth ... :)

for two clients an aws access openvpn server (server outside your lan) is free (starting 3 clients it would cost a fee)

but cloudlink would be a solution too (see other thread)
