I have just factory reset my DS218J to correct a finger error. On completion I'm repeating the QuickConnect setup but can't complete it because I get 'Authorisation required' as I'm using my default email address.
Please advise how to perform authorisation in this situation. I really don't need internet access to my NAS but I don't see how I can side-step QuickConnect.
Thanks in advance for your response, Colin

Isn’t there a skip link and then you can do it later on from within DSM?

Thanks Rusty - yes, but I don't know how to set up port forwarding.

You don't need port-forwarding for QuickConnect.

Thanks Telos - just what I needed.
It makes you wonder why DSM software installation insists on port-forwarding!

You are welcome. FWIW, for QuickConnect, port forwarding is optional. When you forward ports, you may realize greater transfer speeds since QuickConnect will operate like a "DDNS" connection, and not use Synology's relay servers to "punch through" a connection to your NAS. Not forwarding ports adds a layer of isolation from unwanted external connection attempts to your NAS.

However, if QC's connection speeds are insufficient for your needs, you can go into the "optional" settings and set up port forwarding (I suggest doing this manually via your router settings interface).

My take is that if I need to forward ports, I might as well set up a DDNS connection. Good Luck!
