Forwarding Ports for a Synology DS409 NAS
When you use a Synology DS409 NAS you might need to forward some ports in your router. A port forward allows incoming connection requests from the internet to go straight to a Synology DS409 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
Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things:
- The IP address of your router.
- The internal IP address of your NAS.
- Each of the TCP and UDP ports that you need to forward.
