Share specific folder over internet

Post by larbac » Fri Mar 05, 2021 1:57 am

Hi

I'm trying to find out if a QNAP NAS have a way to share a specific folder to a specific person only with a link sent by email without the need to create accounts or similar.
Just a plain share over email or giving a link to someone.

Is is possible?

Thank You

best to use dropbox,onedrive, etc.. exposing your QNAP to the whole world (does not matter if the link is only for one person, the NAS is still exposed)

If it needs to be done via QNAP, check myQNAPcloud Link to tunnel traffic via QNAP servers (at least this way your NAS is not exposed)

Hi Dolbyman

Yeah, I understand your suggestion. The thing is that sometimes I need to upload 400/500GB of data and takes me 1 or 2 days just to upload.
I was trying to provide that service directly from me.

I will check the link you gave.

Thanks
