Web Connectivity - can't access my NAS through xxx.myqnapcloud.com

Post by godded » Thu Feb 13, 2020 12:09 pm

Hello QNAP community,

I've had my TS-451+ (Firmware 4.4.1.1146) for almost 2 years now and am very happy with it.
However, I've been struggling for weeks with getting a direct connection to my NAS from outside my LAN.
I can successfully connect using the https://qlink.to/xxx link, but I can't get DDNS / xxx.myqnapcloud.com to work, neither can I connect using my public IP.

I've tried with uPNP and with manual port forwarding, set my NAS as the DMZ host IP on my TP-Link Archer C7 (only router in my network), but to no avail.

My router also shows failed we connectivity.

I'm pretty good with databases and hardware, but I'm not really into network troubleshooting.
Can someone maybe point me into a direction in order to resolve my connectivity woes?

Best regards,
Julian

look at this thread and see what can happen

get a good router with a built in vpn server (e.g. asus 68 or 86) and use the vpn server for remote access to your nas

Considering the amount of posts you have on this forum, I might just have to assume this is one of those points in life, where I should accept good advice when it is given.

I guess I'll figure out another way for my FTP server.
Thank you.

sorry..it's just good practice to keep the web away from your nas

at max...look into containers or vms ..that way a hack would be contained in a virtual environment
