I choose it, but I can't find it on my server to add books! I set it as /Library/Ebooks. If I go to that folder, there is nothing there. There should at least be the quick start guide calibre starts with. If I drag an epub to my /Library/Ebooks, I should be able to add it through the calibre gui. When I select add books, it shows the folder is empty except that quick start guide.

SO confusing!

Just saw your screenshot.
In volume mapping, you need only map the main library. Remove the config mapping, you don’t need it (assuming the config folder is in your existing /Library/Ebooks folder).

If now you are running on a blank /nobody/library folder, on Calbre gui, choose Calibre Libray—>Switch library, you will see the blank folder, press up green arrow to enter the root directory.Then you will see your existing /Library folder (mapped from your /Library/Ebooks), choose it. Then you should now see all your existing ebooks catalogue.

I started again and mounted to /Calibre_Library. This is where I keep getting the error

"OSError: [Errno13] Permission denied."

This happens if my books are there, or even if the folder is actually empty!

Sorry for that. I attached another 2 screenshots. Not sure it will help you create "nobody" user for your folder. I'm not keen at the user setting in synology. Just to show you what I've set it up long time ago for my Calibre library.

I know that feeling. I also struggled on my first setup.

Been quite the adventure. So the server is up and running. Can't access it with anything yet. Lol. Tried with Moon Reader + Pro and also with just directing my browser to the address. Am I missing something?

Wrt the port mapping number in my post #26. For local access:
Moon reader+ Pro, set up a new Net Library by refering to: 192.168.x.x:4002/opds

I attach screenshot from my iPad.

Do you have problem with access from public internet access outside home? Port forwarding issue?

I've never set it up before. Had a server for years, just never was able to get it going. I finally have a good reason to now.

I am so happy with this setup now. I can access my huge Calibre library in my favorite ebook program! Amazing.

I have a synology router and a synology server. They play well together. I started trying to figure it out earlier, but didn't really get too far.

I doubt I have a static IP from my internet provider, so I imagine this is where Quick connect or my synology.me comes into play.

Pretty sure I set those up right, just not sure what address I should be using.

I'll try tomorrow night to keep going.

Thanks again for all your help!

Calibre from the internet

So I love having the server on my local network, but can't figure out to how access it from outside. I have a synology router as well as server, and I have a synology.me account.

Any help on where I can find info to connect from the internet?

Thanks!

Hi Villax,

I've never used synology.me, but have your tried something like this for your url:

http://villax.synology.me:4001 (supposed you have your port mapping as 4001 in calibre docker)

If the above url works, you are ready to go without additional setup. If not, you will have to set up port forwarding in your synology router.

As I do not have Synology router, but I used to consider one, so basically do the following steps:

1. login to your Synology router

2. goto Internet-->Port Forwarding-->Create Portforwarding rule, you will have to fill in:

Private IP address: this is your Synology NAS local/private IP address, which is 192.168.x.x. You have to ensure that your Synology NAS has fixed local IP address, e.g. my NAS address is always 192.168.2.4

Public Port: this is the port number that you will use in your url when you are outside your home, it could be any number, as long as the number has not been used by another port forwarding rule. For me, I use 9001

Private Port: this is the port number to access your Calibre docker when you are at home (usually when at home, I use 4001. This is the same port number you fix for port 8080 of Calibre docker, as mentioned in earlier post)

Protocol: choose tcp/udp

3. create another portforwarding rule for your calibre content server, so that you can use it for your Moonreader+ Net Library url. For me, the public port is 9002 (forwarding to private port 4002)

Once your complete the above, belows are how you use them:
1. to access your calibre full management gui: http://villax.synology.me:9001
2. to access your calibre content server gui: http://villax.synology.me:9002
3. to setup your Moonreader+ net library: http://villax.synology.me:9002/opds

Please let me know if you need further clarification.

Glad it works! So you had to set port forwarding rules to make it work?

Sorry for hijacking this thread - I also have Calibre running on my Synology NAS and found this thread while googling. Did anyone of you manage to get authentication configured via Guacamole or how do you handle it at all?
