synology or pch nfs authentication glitch?
I currently have a Synology DS1511++ and i've set up my Synology and PCH-C200 exactly as described in the wiki article "Network Synology NAS setup". If I leave the username and password blank on the NMT settings for an NFS setup, I can access the share on the NAS just fine. On the other hand, using SMB, I must provide a username and password or I can not access the share.

Would there be a reason why I can still access my folder without a username and password using NFS settings on the NMT? I don't have any guest accounts active, and the only users that have access privileges are the admin and a specific user set up for the NMT.

Could someone who uses NFS and a Synology share for their NMT, remove your username and password from the NMT settings and see if you can still access your NAS share? It doesn't really make sense if Synology is authenticating simply because of the NMT's IP address I set up in the NFS privileges on the folder share or could it?
Thanks.

NFS does not have user names or passwords. You base it on ip address of hosts you want to allow. If it works it means the synology is most likely allowing everything on its subnet to access it.

Thanks for your quick reply. I had wondered if that was the case, but wasn't quite sure as the wiki indicates you must use a username and password with the NFS setup.

It does, it keeps it simple and is good practice.

You can limit the devices quite well if you use internal static ip's and setup the NFS privaleges accordingto ip if you want security.
