Plex Media Server on Nighthawk X10 R9000 wont connect to Synology NAS

server-netgear

#1

Whenever I try to connect my Netgear X10 to a folder on my Synology NAS I get the message "Your router can't connect to your network drive because of network errors.


#2

Is there a way to test inside your X10 admin panel that it has access to \your_synology_server\share\path?
If it does, then you should be able to enter that in folder access in Plex.


#3

It was the firewall on my NAS, disabled the firewall for the IP address of my router and all was fine.

I am having a similar, when I Add Network Drive Connection from my netgear x10 (R9000) to my synology NAS it never fills in it just takes me back to the “Add Network Drive Connection” again. When I go into plex I can see the name that I gave it, however it does not work. I have checked the firewall on my Synology. Any other Suggestions?
