Description Of Issue

Recently followed instructions to set up Roon Server:

Started with Ubuntu 15.10 but ffmpeg or avconv were not available so created a new VM with 20.04 which sucessfully downloaded ffmpeg. I have installed cifs-utils on the server as well.

Installed room using the easy installer and have had no problems finding the server and loving into Roon. Once logged in I cannot connect to my Synology NAS DS918+

I have created a user on the NAS with access to my music share but for some reason, Roon will not authorise.

Hi BlackJack,

Thank you for sending that over. I have now sorted it, it was the special characters in my password that were the issue. I had to go into the Synology user details and disable the requirement within passwords.

Thanks again.
