Synology and UPnP and UBNT

Uncategorized Add comments

Synology is a fairly good NAS product, but they occasionally seem to drop a ball (*cough* *cough* python3 update, ever? *cough*). UPnP is tonight’s frustration, but A comment by user scyto on UBNT’s community support from May 2016 is what helped.

Plagiarizing Scyto’s response (in case it gets “updated” to the new and “improved” forum) is:

It seems synology built natpmp int0 their units but never turned it on – here is how.

  1. ensure you already cofigure your synoogy with the router wizard in non password mode
  2. enable SSH access to the synology
  3. login with an SSH client
  4. sudo vi /etc/portforward/router.conf to edit the file 
  5. change the following lines in the file:
    1. support_change_port=yes
    2. support_router_upnp=yes
    3. support_router_natpmp=yes
    4. router_type=natpmp
  6. leave all other lines as-in

What scyto doesn’t mention is that after saving /etc/portforward/router.conf there’s no need to sigHUP anything or force a reload — just works the next time you hit [SAVE] on the “External Access” config screen.
