"Digital hubs." iPod and its successors. (iPhone?) Convergence. How ridiculous will DRM get? Yep, put it all together and it just might make for a successful thread.

Do you know where the permissions are?

I'm sure I hacked at it wrong/ly...so I gave everyone read/write to a share.

Ah hah! I think I know why my transfers are so slow. I've been using sftp on the command line because it's supported by the Synology but it's dog slow. Using scp instead (also on the command line) gets me nearly drive speed transfers. But! But, the catch is that to use scp I have to route the transfer through my laptop with the NAS volume mounted. So, I'm copying from the server via scp to my laptop and writing directly to the NAS mounted drive on my laptop (/Volumes/Synology/) and that's _faster_ than using sftp direct from the server to the NAS. Go figure.

There are lots of web links that debate the speed merits of sftp vs scp and lots of (sometimes informed) speculation as to why this is the case. My anecdotal evidence suggests that scp is way faster in my hands.

So you're trying to copy data from a shared drive on a server to the Synology? What kind of server is it?

You might try enabling SSH on the Synology, then you could try connecting into it that way and then use scp to pull the files directly from the source server onto the NAS without using your laptop as a go-between.

It's a RS2212. SSH is enabled but I get the sense that it's to actually ssh in and poke around. When I try and scp I get 'lost connection'. Plus, ssh/scp aren't listed under "File Services" like sftp is but rather ssh/snmp are under server management.

What is the other server, the one that you are trying to copy the files from?

I need a cheap-ass 30-pin speaker dock or something similar, that lets me use an old iPod to play music for the baby's nursery. I'd rather not have to have a bunch of cables running from the iPod. Anything super cheap out there? Dealmac turns up nothing.

What a journey.
I've never thought about searching Twitter to shop for items, but on a lark (is that a saying?) I did....
$26 - http://dailysale.com/logitech-s400i-30-pin-ipod-iphone-alarm-clock-speaker-dock.html
$45 - name band Sony. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sony-ICFCS15IP-30-Pin-iPod-iPhone-Speaker-Dock-Black/301075373657?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item46197d9e59
$29 - Nice JBL http://www.harmanaudio.com/refurbished-speakers/ONBEATAWAKEBLKAM-Z.html?CJPID=CJ

Oh, and I even originally tried the "Pay the Bills" B&H with nothing noteworthy...

DDT?.... you've stated here before you have URL shorteners.... how do you EVER put up with Twitter... which is ALL shortened URLs? Or have you stopped your short-hating, bigoted, blue state biases???? (bwhahahaahahaahahh love ya!)

Is that a short joke!? Okay, you may have reach, but wolverines are small critters, too!

They have a 30-pin cylindrical dock for $17.88 on the shelf. name brand ends in ANN... but again, lousy photo.

Jeez, thanks for finding some good ones, fellas. I did not realize how many good cheap ones there are out there. I ended up with this Phillips because I needed something without a glaring display in the night, it has a built-in rechargeable battery, and I like good design. http://www.amazon.com/Philips-DS7650-37-Discontinued-Manufacturer/dp/B005OYR9D8/ref=lh_ni_t?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A1GAD27JKMQM26

Thanks! That looks like the holy grail of making that damn thing useful.


The other server(s) are a mix of Ubuntu 12.04 and CentOS 6.5 rack mounts. We're migrating from 12.04 to 6.5 and moving the data off the main drive is part of the process.

In trying to decide on which NAS to get for home to replace my nearly-full Seagate NAS, I decided I was just going to put a bunch of drives in my Windows Server instead.
