    • Block webcrawler ect. with firewall

      Hello everyone,

      I have configured my OMV to shutdown via the autoshutdown plugin after 30 minutes of no activity. Also my router will wake up the nas when accessed via internet.
      The internet access is needed for my nextcloud and uses a dyndns service.
      My problem now is, that every time the nas shuts down, shortly after it gets waked up again. I assume this is because of search engine crawlers or something alike. Is there a ip list of webcrawlers that i can block with the router firewall? Or can I prevent my nas from getting waked up unintentionally any other way?

      Kind Regards,
      Xologrimm
    • I am using a fritzbox 7490. There is the option to wake the computer automatically if accessed via internet. Unfortunately no other options are available for this function as far as I know.
      Access from the internet to the nas is only possible on port 80 and 443 via port forwarding.
    • Probably the only thing you could try would be to accept traffic to those ports only from a list of known IP addresses that you wish to allow waking up the NAS and reject all others.

      WOL packets sent via a VPN would be a better solution. I have that setup here and have tested to be sure it works, but I do not actually use it.
