Forward Ports for a QNAP TS-859U-RP+ device
You might need to forward some ports in your router when you use a QNAP TS-859U-RP+ device. A port forward allows incoming connection requests from the internet to go straight to a QNAP TS-859U-RP+ device.
Routers do not generally allow incoming connection requests from the internet. By forwarding ports you can work around this limitation.
Before Forwarding 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.
- Each of the TCP and UDP ports that you need to forward.
