Foobar2000 - NAS Synology

Good Morning,

I have not found anyone raising the same issue as I am facing so I am posting this message. This is my first message on this forum so I hope I am posting it in the right section.

I have installed Foobar2000 Mobile on my android phone, purpose being to access, through FTP protocol, to my music library that is on my NAS (Synology brand).
In my NAS I enabled the FTP.
Through wifi, my phone is connected to the local network.
On Foobar2000 on my phone, I went to settings, Media library and added the following location : ftp://192.XXX.X.XX/XXXX
After doing so, everytime I try to connect, I receive a message saying that the login is incorrect.
I do not know whether I need to input my credentials on Foobar2000 or whether there is another problem. On Foobar2000, I do not see any place where I can do so.
I know that the nas is detected because, when I disable the FTP protocol on the NAS, or when I enter purposedly a wrong IP adress, i receive a different error message (like "path not found")

Has anyone already faced this issue before ? How to deal with it ?

Thank you very much in advance for your feedback

Just be sure that your Synology NAS doesn't have a FTP connection limit enabled.
Otherwise you'll run into non-indexed songs due to rejected connections, since fb2k mobile knows no limit for FTP connections.
