    2. If the remote server requires access privileges to the remote folder, enter your user credentials of the remote server in the Account name and Password fields.
    3. Click Browse to select or create an empty destination folder on your Synology NAS for mounting the remote folder.

  1. Tick Mount automatically on startup if you want Synology NAS to mount this remote folder on every system startup or reboot.
  2. Click Mount to have the remote folder mounted to the destination folder. You can now navigate and manage the remote folder from your Synology NAS.
