no forwarded ports means I'm safe, right?

  • I've tried to set up my OMV as a pure NAS. This means the only thing its running is syncthing (inside Docker which is maintained through portainer).


    My router forwards no ports. I hope this means that the web interfaces (OMV, portainer and syncthing) only are accessible from LAN. Is this correct?

    As far as I can see, syncthing is the only WAN-facing application and it's already encrypted. So no need for LetsEncrypt, right?


    Future plans:

    I want to set up a second machine with a Plex-container and some torrent-related containers. These will all be routed through a VPN-container.

    The OMV NAS will share (probably NFS) its data with this other machine, mainly for the sake of Plex.

    Am I safe now?

    Yes. Unless a system on your network gets hacked, nothing can get to the OMV stuff.

    Nope.
