    I'm sorry but the disappearing URL is not our bug. We have no control over this, we only provide the information (port number) in Asset's package manifest.

    The only other package with its own admin web interface I could find - Transmission BT client - has the very same problem.

    Please complain at Synology.


    There are other ways to open Asset web interface, for an example, in Windows 10 Explorer, "Network locations" will list running Asset instances; right click it, choose Properties, click device webpage link from there.

    That's very odd, Peter. The other app I use regularly which has a management URL is the MinimServer UPnP server and I've never seen the flashing URL on MinimServer's Package Center page.

    Their is a three on the Naim forum you should look at. https://forums.naimaudio.com/topic/a...33103025985678.

    Bottom line is I seem to have missing GUI & other features: I've have been pondering how good this install is, does it have an issue, missing or bad links. The missing GUI link & 'Open' tab seems to indicate a bad install, so I've uninstalled (again). After uninstall I checked & noted the AssetUPnP-Data folder is still in the Shared Folder & I've also deleted this. Additionally with this uninstall I've included a system restart in an attempt to clear out any detritus that may be present.

    Now with beta-11 installed as per above: AssetUPnP-Data folder is NOT in the Shared Folder. There is NO GUI IP*:45537 link. There is NO 'Open' tab - only Stop & Uninstall. I had to go back into Configure to reset my preferences. Apart from that Asset works.

    I copied Synology SPK manifest ("INFO" file) over from MinimServer, produced a working SPK with no bug, then replaced MinimServer info with ours line by line.

    Turns out that the only way I can fix this is by changing app name to "MinimServer".

    I also took MinimServer SPK package from MinimServer website, extracted it and edited the name to "MinimServer2". Resulitng SPK has the disappearing URL bug also.

    Please tell Synology to stop sabotaging apps that are not registered with their online store. I'm done with this.

    I suspect Synology will not do anything that we (users) ask them in this case, I guess somehow its you that will need work to open up a dialog & seek there approval/cooperation for another 3rd party program on their OS.

    I also had a play with the INFO file and couldn't get it to work but I didn't try rernaming the app. I can imagine you probably don't want to do that :-)

    I'm not sure you can conclude that Synology is therefore somehow sabotaging apps not registered with their online store. In any case, a bug report to Synology would carry more weight coming from Illustrate as a developer rather than from users, I would guess.

    These minor packaging issues aside, there will be a lot of Synology users happy to have the option of using Asset as a UPnP server.
