Forwarding Ports for a Synology DS411+ NAS
You might need to forward some ports in your router when you use a Synology DS411+ NAS. A port forward allows incoming connection requests from the internet to go straight to a Synology DS411+ NAS.
Routers are not designed to allow incoming network requests. By forwarding a port you can overcome this limitation.
Before Forwarding a Port
Before forwarding a port make sure that you know these things:
- The internal IP address of your router.
- Your NAS's IP address.
- Each of the TCP and UDP ports that you need to forward.
