Hi folks,


I have a QNAP NAS and am connected to AirVPN on the QNAP itself (NOT using Eddie or Router config) using "kradsith" guide here (AirVPN instructions at bottom of page 2);



All good! Connected fine and getting good speeds etc.


I have also set up two Port Forwards; 1 for plex (working fine - green TCP Test) and one for the QTS Admin console which by default uses port 8080. However the port forwarding for this port shows as yellow. I have removed the port forwarding to this port in my router but unsure why this shows as yellow. The port forwarding works fine i.e. I can use my own DDNS name with the AirVPN generated port and see my console but concerned that I have a leak as it currently is.


I guess I could try amending the console port from 8080 from within QNAP QTS Console and try fort forwarding again but reluctant to do that until I know why the TCP test shows as yellow.


Some other information which may be pertinent is I have port forwarding in my router for Sickrage, NZBGet, Couchpotato, Headphones, Transmission, (I'm not actually sure if I need ANY of these to be accessible from the internet as suspect they working fine together on the LAN as they are all hosted on my NAS/QNAP).


Could anyone provide me with any pointers, ideas, solutions?


Thanks in advance!

You will need another rule on your router to forward your external AirVPN port XXXXX to your local port 8080 of the QNAP.

Hi. Thanks for the reply. This makes sense. I added a port forwarding rule to the router for the AirVPN port to 8080 but now the TCP Test shows as Red (I guess this means that I can tunnel in from the internet but also from my real IP. I have removed the Port Forward for the moment in both AirVPN and Router. Not urgent but would like to be able to access my NAS remotely if possible... Definitely not a must. And probably better not to have any more ports open than the one for Plex. I'm a bit of a novice so thanks for the patience.
