AS-202T-1A00 and ASUS WebStorage

Postby sdemills » Thu Sep 23, 2021 5:00 pm

I would like to be able to use my AS-202T-1A00 NAS together with my ASUS WebStorage space. So far I can find no APP that is compatible with both of these things.

Although there is an APP called ASUS WebStorage it does not list my NAS on its list of compatible devices. I tried using the manual install procedure just in case it might work, but it didn't work.

There are other Cloud backup and sync APPs available some of which show example cloud services that they work with and they say they can work with other cloud services too, but when I install them they do not actually offer any other additional cloud services at all - just the ones shown in their screen capture.

I would like to selectively backup up parts of my NAS storage to my ASUS WebStorage account - I'm not interested in backing up to any other cloud service - I've paid for ASUS WebStorage and now I wish to use it.

I notice on the ASUS WebStorage web page for my account that multiple platform APPs are available including for Linux. Since ADM is a version of Linux I'm wondering if I download a Linux client whether I can install it using PUTTY and whether it would actually work?

Has anyone been down this path who could offer some helpful advice?
Kind Regards
Steve

ASUS WebStorage appears to be a 64 bit binary whilst your NAS is 32 bit. It's only possible with emulation (limited and lots of things to do) but I don't have your NAS to test. So the best bet is to request ASUS for the linux 32 bit app.

Thanks for the reply.

What is the best way of contacting ASUS to ask for the 32-bit version?

It's a pity they don't simply support their own WebStorage for my NAS - it could cost them lost business - for example: had I bought 1Tb of Microsoft OneDrive storage then there is a standard ASUS APP that would let me backup and sync to OneDrive, but there is not one for ASUS WebStorage. Similarly had I gone for AWS storage then that is supported for my NAS too. I guess it's another example of "cheapest is not always best" :)

I'm not sure as I'm not using their service. The app seems closed source hence I can't help compile for you, although I do roughly see some APIs which you can program with some knowledge. So best is to contact them personally and request for the 32 bit (i386) version https://personal.asuswebstorage.com/.
