Why so much network chatter from Synology NAS?

Recommended Posts

Have a 1515+ on my network running Sync 2.5.4 and pfSense is showing that it's going nuts making calls to the 169.254.x.x address space (which from what I've read is the address space devices use only when they don't get an address from a DHCP server)... it's definitely Sync doing it on the NAS, because when I stop the service on the NAS, the blocked entries in the firewall log stop... if I start Sync back up, the log entries start rolling in again. I have about 10 computers on my network also running the desktop versions of Sync and none of them make so much noise on the LAN, only the NAS.

Anyone know why it's doing that? is it normal? is there a way to stop it?
