Set Up a Port Forward for a Synology DS214se NAS
You might need to forward some ports in your router when you use a Synology DS214se NAS. By forwarding ports you allow connection requests coming from the internet to be directed to a Synology DS214se NAS.
Routers do not generally allow incoming connection requests from the internet. By forwarding a port you can overcome this limitation.
Remember to Do These Things Before You Forward a Port
You need to know the following things before you can forward a port:
- The IP address of your router.
- The internal IP address of your NAS.
- A list of 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. It is part of our Network Utilities suite of tools and is free for you to use it.
