NAS: Boot your NAS…

In a previous article I showed how to make the Synology reboot a router via a cronjob.

There are many more options – such as automatically rebooting your Synology NAS thereafter – you would just extend the script by another two lines:

# Wait until the router has restarted. This is a simple sleep, # but you could also check the NAS's interface or # ping the router. My Belkin takes 60 sec to restart sleep 60 # The following command initiates a restart of the NAS echo -n "CCCC" > /dev/ttyS1
