I have recently bought a Synology NAS DS3617XS and would like to access it through Dolphin file browser.
How do I make this possible as I have no idea...

I also want to be able to write to my NAS, as at the moment, I am unable to save anything to it unless I connect an external Hard Drive to it and transfer what files I want to move. Also, I want certain programs to have access to my NAS.

I'm running Kubuntu 18.04

Kubuntu 18.04LTS 64bit|KDE 5.47.0|Plasma 5.12.19|QT 5.9.5|Linux|M5A78L-M USB3|BIOS 2101|AMD PhenomII X4 965 3400+|P8H77-I Motherboard NIC|32.0GB PC3-10600 1333Mhz CL9 ( 9-9-9-24 ) DDR3

Hi, I think there are multiple methods depending on how you want to work, but in Dolphin;

  • Open Dolphin, select "Network" from the left hand menu / column
  • Double click on "Add network folder" icon in the main pane
  • Select your access method, FTP/NFS/SSH should work for you if they're enabled on the NAS
With NFS, you may need to mount the drive "before" trying to access it via Dolphin.
