Setting Up a Port Forward for a QNAP TS-109 device
When you use a QNAP TS-109 device you may need to forward ports in your router. The purpose of forwarding ports is to make a direct connection from the internet to a QNAP TS-109 device.
Routers generally do not allow incoming connection requests from the internet. By forwarding a port you can overcome this limitation.
Before Forwarding a Port Checkoff This To Do List
Before forwarding a port make sure that you know these things:
- The internal IP address of your router.
- Your NAS's IP address.
- The list of the TCP and UDP ports that you need to forward.
