Forward Ports for a D-Link DNS-320 device
When you use a D-Link DNS-320 device you might need to forward some ports in your router. Forwarding ports is used to allow incoming connection requests from the internet to a D-Link DNS-320 device.
Routers do not generally allow incoming connection requests from the internet. A port forward can overcome this limitation.
Remember to Do These Things Before You Forward a Port
Before forwarding a port make sure that you know these things:
- The internal IP address of your router.
- The IP address of your NAS.
- The list of the TCP and UDP ports that you need to forward.
