Setting Up a Port Forward for a QNAP HS-210 device
You might need to forward some ports in your router when you use a QNAP HS-210 device. By forwarding ports you allow connection requests coming from the internet to be directed to a QNAP HS-210 device.
By default routers do not allow incoming network requests. By forwarding a port you can overcome this limitation.
Before You Forward a Port
Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things:
- Your router's internal IP address.
- The internal IP address of your NAS.
- Each of the TCP and UDP ports that you need to forward.
Find the IP Address of Your Router
The easiest way to locate your router's IP address is to run our free Router Detector utility. The software is part of our Network Utilities suite of tools and it is completely free to use.
Otherwise, you can follow our guide Find Your Router IP Address.
