Synology DSM 7: Access synology.me without Port :5001

Synology DSM 7 Access synology.me without Port 5001

Are you tired of typing yourname.synology.me:5001 in your browser address bar every time you log into your DSM 7? Would you like to know how to remove the :5001 part and still be able to access your Synology on DSM 7 in a professional way? Right now, if you remove the port number :5001 from your synology.me address and press Enter, instead of your usual login page, a standard screen with an error message will appear.

Did you know your Synology NAS can act as a Reverse Proxy Server that transfers requests from the Internet to devices in the local network? Starting today, you will be able to connect to your synology.me DDNS address without typing :5001 at the end of the link every single time. To learn how to do this, just follow the instructions below.

  • Reverse Proxy Name: Type in name or description (you can just type in Synology NAS, like I did).
  • Source
  • Protocol: select HTTPS (which is the transfer protocol used to access the web over the Internet using Reverse Proxy)
  • Hostname: type in the individual unique domain name for your Synology NAS that you want to access over the Internet using the Reverse Proxy protocol (for example: yourname.synology.me) In my case I used my own DDNS name that I have previously created on STEP 2 of this article.
  • Port: 443 (the default HTTPS port).
  • Destination
  • Protocol: select HTTPS
  • Hostname: type in localhost
  • Port: type in port 5001 or the port you have chosen to access your DSM via the HTTPS protocol. The standard port is 5001.
  • Click Save.
  • STEP 6

After clicking Save, if everything went as it should have, you should see your new Reverse Proxy rule.

Now try to connect to your Synology DSM 7 through your browser using your name followed by synology.me without adding the :5001 port at the end. Enjoy!

Look here https://mariusdocker.synology.me/ It’s my synology.me login screen without :5001 at the end. PS: Don’t try to connect, your IP will be blocked automatically.

Note: With Reverse Proxy, from now on you can connect to your NAS without adding the :5001 port at the end. Remember you can connect to your DDNS with or without :5001 at the end and everything will work fine either way.
Note: Access synology.me without Port 5001 at the end on DSM 6.2.4
