    Info Port forwarding rules not have to generate firewall rules

    I just noticed the Setting button on the General tab of Network Center's Port Forwarding page. Throwing caution to the wind I clicked it and found three options. Two are for UPnP and I have UPnP disabled, but the third, when enabled, will auto-generate firewall rules for the port-forwarders...

    Excellent Series of Synology NAS Tutorials-Mydoodads

    I bought my NAS a year ago and realise that, amongst other aspects, permissions, Photo Station and Moments had created a year-long confusion; well permissions had, partly because I did not start with groups as I had only one or two users. As far as Photo Station and Moments goes, after a short...

    Plex vs Firewall

    Something in my firewall settings blocks Plex from a direct connection. My settings are pretty basic.. 1. allow LAN IP range 2. allow VPN IP range 3. allow USA (all) and deny all else... When active I get no connection and when disabled I can directly connect. I'm stymied. Ideas? Thanks.
