The Synology DS211 and 411j are capable of acting as basic website hosts. Web Station in a nutshell allows users to create websites directly from the NAS devices. Administrators are also able to choose the users who are permitted to do so. As shown about it is also possible to enable MySQL database and PHP functionality.

Firewall & IP Block

As you would expect, a firewall has also been implemented in order to restrict unauthorised access to the device. Moreover, you may manually select specified ports to block as well as choose from a list of applications to protect as well.

Following on the subject of unauthorised access, Synology has also implemented an "IP Block" function. If for example a client attempts to log in to the NAS device repeatedly with no success, the 211 and 411j can block that given IP address for a specified period of time. An email notification is sent to the administrator to make them aware.

As the title suggests, both boxes offer DDNS support so that they can be accessed via a given hostname URL. This is a priceless option for those with a domain and the need to access their files away from home.

The 211 and 411j also support SNMP, which allows network management software to access and monitor the servers.
