    How to set up WebDAV for Synology
    If you follow the instructions in the link above, you will be provided with a WebDAV access URL with port number 5005 (http) or 5006 (https). You can use that as the Server URL required when you set up the WebDAV destination in BackupAssist. Alternatively, you can create a shared folder inside it that will serve as the destination, within which the Backup Container will reside.

    How to set up WevDAV for QNAP
    If you follow the instructions in the link above, you will have set up one or more Shared Folders with WebDAV access. You can use any of these folders as your WebDAV backup destination, within which the Backup Container will reside. For example, if folder was called "backup" on a QNAP NAS named webdavhost, the Server URL required when you set up the WebDAV backup in BackupAssist will be http://webdavhost/backup.
