Forwarding Ports for a QNAP TS-219P NAS
When you use a QNAP TS-219P NAS 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-219P NAS.
Routers do not generally allow incoming connection requests from the internet. By forwarding ports you can work around this limitation.
Before You Forward a Port
Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things:
- Your router's IP address.
- Your NAS's internal IP address.
- The TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.
