Synology: What is QuickConnect?

Synology What is QuickConnect

QuickConnect allows you to access your NAS device from outside of your internal private network. This is Synology’s way of ensuring you don’t need to open ports on your NAS/router to access your data externally. I don’t use QuickConnect. QuickConnect is meant for beginners. There’s nothing wrong with using it. The way that I access my data from outside of my network is through DDNS services like my-favorite-name.synology.me

While QuickConnect allows your devices to establish an indirect connection to your DSM or SRM operating system through Synology servers, DDNS helps establish a direct connection to your DSM or SRM operating system.
