It looks like it is working but i can't find my device on the "global bitcoin nodes" map, any ideas?In the most recent version of Synology Disk Station manager DSM 5.2 they have added support for Docker.
This makes it super easy for anyone with a Synology Disk Station to run a bitcoin full node.
Install the Docker package:
Once Docker has installed, open it, and search the registry for "bitcoinclassic"
Highlight the one you want, and click "Download"
Step 3. Once the image has downloaded, select it, and then choose "Launch With Wizard"
Follow the wizard steps:
That's it! Everything should be up and running!
The only other things you may want to check are:
1. Make sure your router is forwarding port 8333 to your Synology Disk Station
2. Check and see if your node is reachable from the outside internet. There is a great tool for checking here.
Things I didn't figure out how to do yet:
1. I don't know how to check the node status locally from the DSM. (How many connections? How much of the blockchain has been downloaded and synced?)
2. I think if I reboot the machine, it may lose the entire copy of the blockchain and need to download it again. I think there is a way to map the blockchain files to an external folder.
I'll gladly update the tutorial above if people can provide additional information.
This seems like a super easy way for hundreds of thousands of Synology Disk Station owners to start running a full node!

I guess the closest thing I have to an "official" channel is this, but I just use it as a personal place to toss up occasional videos that I need hosted.Thanks Roger, do you have an official youtube channel?
