Set Up a Port Forward for a Synology DS412+ NAS
When you use a Synology DS412+ NAS you may need to forward ports in your router. A port forward allows incoming connection requests from the internet to go straight to a Synology DS412+ 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 Checkoff This To Do List
Before forwarding a port make sure that you know these things:
- The IP address of your router.
- The IP address of your NAS.
- The TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.
