Forward Ports for a QNAP TS-119 NAS
You may need to forward ports in your router when you use a QNAP TS-119 NAS. By forwarding ports you allow connection requests coming from the internet to be directed to a QNAP TS-119 NAS.
Routers generally do not 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 you can forward a port you need to know the following things:
- The internal IP address of your router.
- Your NAS's IP address.
- A list of TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.
