Can Sync open port:8890 with UPNP ?

Recommended Posts


It's very hard to maintain a Sync server on a NAS, if Sync can't open a port on his own Router.

On Linux box and Max i can install libnatpmp and open manually the port on the Router, but own can we do that With a NAS ?

Sync uses UPNP/NAT-PMP to forward listening port to itself (i.e. port it uses to transfer data), but not the WebUI port. If you want to access WebUI port from outside of your router, you'll have to do a manual port forwarding or use some other tools if your NAS has dynamic IP.

Hi @RomanZ Thank you for your reply.

You haven't read under the lines here ;-)

Since you already open some ports on the router, why not opening this one too via an option.

99% of people don't know how to install libnatpnp on their NAS or simply don't know too how to open a port on their own router. That's Why you use UPNP/NAT-PNP no ?

Please consider it because the interface on a NAS for example isn't accessible from the outside while the own NAS interface is ;-)
