Forwarding Ports for a QNAP TS-410 NAS
When you use a QNAP TS-410 NAS you may need to forward ports in your router. A port forward allows incoming connection requests from the internet to go straight to a QNAP TS-410 NAS.
Routers do not generally allow incoming connection requests from the internet. A port forward can overcome this limitation.
Before You Forward a Port
Before forwarding a port make sure that you know these things:
- The IP address of your router.
- The IP address of your NAS.
- The list of the TCP and UDP ports that you need to forward.
