Forwarding Ports for a QNAP TS-210 NAS
You may need to forward ports in your router when you use a QNAP TS-210 NAS. By forwarding ports you allow connection requests coming from the internet to be directed to a QNAP TS-210 NAS.
By default routers do not allow incoming network requests. Forwarding ports can work around this limitation.
Before Forwarding a Port Checkoff This To Do List
Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things:
- Your router's internal IP address.
- Your NAS's internal IP address.
- The list of the TCP and UDP ports that you need to forward.

- Log in to your router.
- Find the port forwarding section in your router.
