3. Confirm User Home Service is enabled

The user account that will be used to SSH to the Synology NAS must have the User Home Service feature enabled for their account. Please note that depending on the version of Synology you are using, the path to enable the user home service is slightly different.

a. Synology version 6.2

To enable User Home Service in the Synology UI, navigate to Control Panel > User > Advanced. Tick the ‘Enable user home’ service box and click apply.
