Thread: Using Wine for NAS synchronisation

  1. #1

    Default Using Wine for NAS synchronisation

    I have a NAS from Synology with which I synchronise and back up my data. Now, however,the desktop sync app is no longer available as an rpm package, so that I now have a compatibility issue between NAS and my Linux clients.

    I am wondering if one solution could be to install the Synology Windows .exe application on the clients running on Wine. Would this .exe client have a) access to all my Linux files and b) network access to the NAS (via my Linux-configured network) for data synchronisation?

    Does anyone know how this might work?

    Does anyone have any other suggestions how I might solve this issue?

    A NAS is a rather vague term. Do you use it as an NFS server for your Linux (thus NFS client) systems, or are you suing SAMBA?

    I don't know for sure what the Synology application for file synchronisation with the NAS uses. On the NAS both SMB and NFS protocols are enabled. I usually access the NAS manually with Nautilus using SMB. My clients are Linux or Mac based.

    When you use SAMBA, you have to wait for others. I am a Microsoft noob.

    There are several here with SAMBA experience. Don't worry.

    I think the question is: Do I need to configure Wine for SAMBA? How? Also, how is the application installed under Wine? Using the .msi file?

    You should not need wine. SMB is built in but you do need to configure But it may be better to use NAS. SMB is more Windowsy

    Dos you mean that I can use the .exe (Windows) without needing to installl Wine? Otherwise, I'm not sure I understand what you mean. My problem is that Synology no longer provides a .rpm application for synchronisation of the OpenSUSE client data with itts NAS. There are now only exe,, dmg, or deb packages, whereas previously an rpm package was availlable that had been compatible with Leap 15.2.

    You should not need to rely on the desktop client software. It should be possible to 'automate' backups from the NAS itself. This article may be of value to you...
