DC++ on a Qnap or Synology NAS device

DC++ and NAS devices

I am am planning to purchase my first 4 bay device NAS, and the main functionality I require is support for DC++ client. Which (synology or Qnap) supports DC++ clients?

There is no DC++ app for Linux since this is a windows client. But you can have a plus series NAS with Celeron like TS-251+ / DS218+ or similar which will allow virtualization. You can install Windows on this VM and then set up DC++.

  1. Hello thanks for this video great work. I am not sure if you can help. I installed a VM and everything is working using VIRTIO drivers. I have a TS-h973-AX and I am using the 10Gbe port. My virtual switch it also using that adapter but the VM network performance is limited to only 1Gbps for some reason. I can get proper speed when directly connecting to the NAS but when I go through a virtual machine is it only 1Gbps. Inside the VM it actually says my link is 100Gbps but it is really limited to 1Gbps. Thank you for any insight on this.

  2. Thanks for this. I’ve been watching your channel on/off for the past few years. I have a TS-412 & more recently the TS453-BT3 with a TR-004 RAID array.
    Your videos area always SO clear & honest. I’ve only watched the QNAP ones, but they always seem very unbiased (IMO) in your review style…
    I need a Virtual Windows machine to install software for the Lotharek HxC floppy emulator hardware, for some vintage music equipment – and I run OSX at my place.
    I figure using the Windows Virtual Machine on my NAS should be good enough to run the software, to create the configuration files and/or disc images for the HxC emulator!
