Set Up a Port Forward for a QNAP TS-410U device
You may need to forward ports in your router when you use a QNAP TS-410U device. Forwarding ports is used to allow incoming connection requests from the internet to a QNAP TS-410U device.
Routers generally do not allow incoming connection requests from the internet. A port forward can overcome this limitation.
Before Forwarding a Port
Make sure that you know these things before forwarding a port:
- Your router's internal IP address.
- Your NAS's IP address.
- The TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.
