Share links

Post by tmassi » Fri Jan 22, 2021 5:43 pm

Hello,
I use to share the content stored inside folders on my QNAP NAS with others using share links.
MyQNAPCloud will turn off Publish Services starting from 29th January 2021.

The question is: will it still be possible for the others to connect to the shared folders after January 29th using Share links?

Please help.
Thank you.

Should be a different system ..but stay far away from exposing your NAS to WAN anyways..so disable upnp and manual port forwards

to share files use dropbox/onedrive/etc

Don't worry, it's a NAS that stores exclusively public data, absolutely no private or business, there's no problem.

So if I understand well the two things are not related or linked one to another in any way?
Can you or someone else from QNAP confirm this?

It would be vary much appreciated.
Thank you.

For official confirmation, you would need to contact qnap .. this is a user forum

Even a public NAS infected with crypto malware (slows it down to a crawl and uses your electricity to mine crypto for other users) and that is harmless, all other sorts of things could be done to a NAS that is not under your control anymore
