Install and Run on Synology NAS?
« on: July 17, 2017, 11:41:14 AM »
Hey All.. Been using WeatherCat some time and Have now gotten a Synology NAS in here and getting away from DROBO's.
Is there a way to install WC on something like this? And have USB see the Weather Station? Anyone Ever TRY?

WeatherCat not designed for this. (Re: Install and Run on Synology NAS?)

Dear Jeff and WeatherCat fans of abundant storage,

Hey All.. Been using WeatherCat some time and Have now gotten a Synology NAS in here and getting away from DROBO's.

This is interesting technology and could be useful for many things, but I don't think you can use it directly with WeatherCat.  WeatherCat is software fine-tuned for the Mac.  It certainly won't run on anything else.  Also at the moment, there isn't an easy way to change where files are stored.  I suppose you could try symbolic links, but it is definitely a rough approach.   Feel free to tinker and see what you discover, but I suspect you will be "goin' about it da' hard way!"

Do let us know what you discover though.

Cheers, Edouard
