Setting Up a Port Forward for a Synology CS407 NAS
When you use a Synology CS407 NAS you may need to forward ports in your router. By forwarding ports you allow connection requests coming from the internet to be directed to a Synology CS407 NAS.
Routers generally do not allow incoming connection requests from the internet. By forwarding ports you can work around this limitation.
Before Forwarding a Port
Before forwarding a port make sure that you know these things:
- Your router's IP address.
- Your NAS's internal IP address.
- The TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.
How to Locate Your Router's IP Address
You can run our free Router Detector software to locate your router's IP address. The software is part of our Network Utilities suite of tools and it is completely free to use.
We have a guide you can follow Find Your Router IP Address if you don't want to run the software.
