Setting Up a Port Forward for a Synology RS407 NAS
You may need to forward ports in your router when you use a Synology RS407 NAS. The purpose of forwarding ports is to make a direct connection from the internet to a Synology RS407 NAS.
Routers generally do not 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.
- The TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.
