Synology Drive to Synchronize a folder between two Macs
I would like to use my DS-216+ with Synology Drive to synchronize a folder that is on both my home and work Macs (running Mojave). (Thus mimicking dropbox, for example.)
So far, I can get Synology Drive to work just fine with one computer. But as soon as I sign in (to the same user account on the synology) with Drive on the second computer, then the first one stops syncing and says "Authentication error" with a red !. If I fix that, by editing the sync task on that computer and logging in again, then the other one stops syncing.
I've been discussing this with the support staff at Synology, but I'm not sure I have asked the question in a way they can understand. The latest answer is
"You won't be able to create 2 tasks on 2 PC/Mac with the same user account, it is by design. I would suggest you create another user account for the task on another computer."
That just doesn't seem right to me. Did they really mean two accounts on the synology? Can I allow two such accounts to access the same synology directory?
