How do you make your Synology NAS externally accessible?

Synology has a very convenient function called 'QuickConnect', which lets you easily enable access from outside your network by following these steps.

The step-by-step plan

Find Synology
  1. Open http://find.synology.com in an internet browser to open the NAS user interface. Examples are Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer. Do this on a computer that's connected to the same network.
  2. Next, go to the configuration screen.
  3. Select 'QuickConnect'.
  4. Select the "Enable QuickConnect" check box.
  5. Log in with a Synology account. If you don't have an account yet, you can create one here right away.
  6. After logging in, choose a name for your NAS with which you can access it from outside your network and enter it in 'QuickConnect ID'.
  7. Leave the checkbox at 'automatic port forwarding' checked.
  8. Click on advanced and make sure that the check boxes for both DSM and the mobile applications are checked.
