Meshcentral Docker container on a Synology NAS

Docker newbie asking for help.

I have been spending the last few days days trying to install a Docker container for Meshcentral on a Synology NAS. Meshcentral is version 1.0.36.

Synology 718+; DSM 7.1-42661 Update 2

In my LAN, I have gotten Meshcentral with agents working fine on a Raspberry Pi using the “npm” install command in the terminal but would like to have it on a Docker container on the NAS.

The Meshcentral install on the NAS works fine for no-agent access with RDP and VNC, but not with the agent!

I have tried several images of Meshcentral, but the one that most reliably installs, yet does not work with the agents is: Docker Hub.

So, I don’t know if the problem is a permissions problem on the NAS or port problem or, obviously something I don’t know about.

Can someone please give me a tip of where to look for a solution. I will provide config.json and whatever files you might deem useful.


Came across your post when I was search for a solutions to same issue.

Know this is kind of old, let me know if you still need help. I was able to get it working and can provide docker imaged used, json settings, DSM reverse proxy and port forwarding.

I’m running DSM 7.0.1-xxxx on DS2415+

Yes, please, I would like to know the solution for the NAS. I got Rustdesk working in a Docker container, but it does not offer the features of Meshcentral.

Sorry. As a new user I’m unable to upload attachments and limited to 2 links per post.

I was going to upload PDF with the steps and settings. Perhaps I can DM you the PDF file, not sure if that’s an option.

Below is link to PDF on google drive.They’re the steps I used to install meshcentral docker container and settings for json, DSM reverse proxy and port forwarding. Settings should work for you as well.
