Forwarding Ports for a QNAP TS-112 device
You may need to forward ports in your router when you use a QNAP TS-112 device. The purpose of forwarding ports is to make a direct connection from the internet to a QNAP TS-112 device.
By default routers do not allow incoming network requests. Forwarding ports can work around this limitation.
Before You Forward a Port
Before forwarding a port make sure that you know these things:
- Your router's IP address.
- The internal IP address of your NAS.
- The TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.
Locate Your Router's IP Address
We have free Router Detector software to help you find your router's IP address. It's a part of the Network Utilities suite of tools and it's completely free to use.
If you do not want to run the software, you can follow our Find Your Router IP Address guide.
How To Forward Ports for a QNAP TS-112 device
The easiest way to forward your ports is to use our Network Utilities software. Network Utilities lets you manage port forwards by putting them in when you need them and also removing the ones that you no longer need which maximized network security.
Port forwarding can also be set up step-by-step by hand. The way to forward a port is:
- Begin by logging in to your router.
- Find the port forwarding section in your router.
- Put the IP address of your NAS in the proper box in your router.
