Hi psailast,

 

ReadyDR is not available on the RN10x series and RN2120. You may also check this article for reference.

You could switch to rsync-over-ssh, and enable custom snapshots on the destination NAS to give you some rollback/retention.

Re: Rsync-over-ssh

Generally you'd set up DDNS on the remote system, so you can use a hostname that will track the WAN address of the remote router (which generally will change without notice).

 

Many Netgear routers have a built-in DDNS service you can use (getting a name like psailist.mynetgear.com.  NoIP.com has a free DDNS option, along with paid options.

 

Most routers will support DDNS.  If yours doesn't, you can also install software on a PC that connects to the DDNS service, and periodically refreshes the DDNS IP address.

 

You also will need to forward the port you are using for rsync-over-ssh in the remote router.

Re: Rsync-over-ssh

If I go for the NoIP.com for the DDNS being that both our routers will support DDNS do I need to  install software on a PC that connects to the DDNS service, and periodically refreshes the DDNS IP address?

 

In order for the Rsync-over-ssh to operate the PC needs to be switched on?  Is there any other option to have a replicate of my ReadyNas on the other Readynas which is at a remote site

 

Thanks

If your router supports ddns (as most do), then there is no need to put anything on a PC.

 

You can check this by simply pinging the hostname you pick, and confirming that the IP address matches WAN address of the router.

 

Note you only need a DDNS name for the remote router, and you don't need to configure DDNS at all in the local router.

Since your router supports DDNS, then no.

The other approach is to set up a VPN that will reach the remote NAS.  One option for this is to use ZeroTier.  There is an ReadyNAS app for that - not sure off-hand where it is, but @Sandshark would know.  ZeroTier can be intimidating, but the basics aren't too difficult.

 

But I think you are close to getting rsync-over-ssh up and running, so maybe just stick with that.

You can find the latest version of ZeroTier foir ARM systems (which is actually quite old, but still works) here: https://github.com/NAStools/zerotierone/releases/tag/readynas%2F1.1.14-nt3 .

Re: Rsync-over-ssh

Thanks for your support and your replies.  

 

The problem is that my routers does not support DDNS beacuse my routers does not support DDNS shall I go for  NoIP.com for the DDNS?

 

In order for the Rsync-over-ssh to operate I need a PC needs to be switched on at the receiving end being that my router does not supports DDNS?

Re: Rsync-over-ssh

What router model are you using at the remote site?  One option might be to upgrade the router there.

Accessing the remote system by name (which is what you should do) will require using a DDNS service (either NoIP.com's or someone else's). That's true even if your router supports DDNS.

 

It will also require you to set up something on the remote site to enable that DDNS service. Basically the DDNS service needs to be told what your remote WAN IP address is, and it needs to be updated whenever the remote WAN IP address changes.  Your ISP might not change your WAN IP very often, but most will change it w/o any notice to you.

 

If your router doesn't have the needed feature, then you can use a PC with a DDNS app installed.  It doesn't absolutely have to be on all the time, but it does need to be on frequently (at least every day) - ideally shortly before the backup jobs are scheduled to run.
