    I have DSM 4
    What i read on internet is that the cloud solution (witch is amaizing) is unsucure.
    With the update DSM 4.1 is the file transfer for the cloud solution secure now.

    • Hi Palermo,

      Your correct! In 4.0 the transfer isn’t encrypted, in 4.1 the sync is encrypted with HTTPS tunneling. The following statement is in the release notes of DSM 4.1;

      HTTPS tunneling is supported to sync data via HTTPS Tunnel with QuickConnect.

      Full release notes;
