Default Port Forwarding kicking my butt...

I'm trying to open up port 5000 on my router so I can remotely access my Synology NAS server. What I assumed would be a quick change to my router is quickly becoming a headache. No matter what I do port 5000 won't show up as open on a port checker website.



What ip address should I be putting in? My computer, my router, the NAS server or the public address???

The problem is I can remotely get to the router admin screen, but not the NAS server

Sounds like it is working properly. Port 5000 is where the Synology admin GUI lives.

If you are trying to access web services, you need to open the port that they are on. Check the setup for the service you are trying to access and forward that port to the same IP. Probably is either 80 or 8080

Seems to be working just fine...

port 5000 is http, port 5001 is https if you happen to need ssl

port checker doesn't show it open because your ports are stealthed.
