File Copy Upload Problem?

I finally finished setting up my website development server, which is a Synology DiskStation NAS. I just tried uploading a test site using File Copy and I’m getting the following error message:

“Cannot complete upload because you do not have access permission.”

I checked the folder I was attempting to write to and it has full Read & Write privileges for everyone. Any thoughts on why this is happening?

Okay, this is definitely a Synology problem. I just tried File Copy to my desktop and it worked fine. I wish a day would go by where I didn’t have to solve some technical problem. :slight_smile:

Well maybe not. I just tried uploading the files again and a few files uploaded before I got the error message. I then initiated the upload again and a few more files uploaded before I got the error.

To me, this sounds like some kind of timeout problem. Does anyone have any ideas?

You would think I would get smarter with old age. As it turns out the Mac OS considers a NAS a server (doh!), which means I have to FTP the files to the NAS’s local IP address. Turned on enable FTP on the NAS and everything works fine. :slight_smile:

That’s because that’s what it is. A NAS is a computer that looks
after data on some disc space it can access and offers a pseudo
filesystem to other computers on the network based on the content.
The filesystem(s) it offers may be the same type of filesystem as the
actual storage - or not.

A NAS doesn’t share disc drive sectors over the network. That’s
nearer to what a storage unit on a SAN does, but on a SAN the data
can’t be shared between hosts. If there’s sharing (as in mounting a
filesystem on multiple hosts) then something has to sit as a front
end to the data storage to manage conflicts.

Arguably the best known early NAS box (actually a ~6 foot 19" racked
cabinet) was from NetApp. Some models offered storage from the many
internal drives as NFS and SMB shares simultaneously. The actual
drive were, obviously, neither of these.
