Using tmux on Synology DSM

       124 words, 1 minutes

tmux is not available on Synology by default. But it only takes a command call to get it.

Connect to the DSM using SSH. This requires starting the Control Panel, going to Connectivity > Terminal & SNMP and checking Enable SSH service.

Once logged in, switch to the root user and run the commad:

# synogear install

The extra commands can be listed using synogear list.

To use them as a user, add /var/packages/DiagnosisTool/target/tool to the user’s $PATH.

# which tmux

# ls /var/packages/DiagnosisTool/target/tool/
autojump           iotop            nmap           sar  iperf            nping zblacklist
