Synology Diskstation DS211+ cannot be accessed via DDNS hostname

I successfully setup my DS211+ with a static IP and established a hostname through no-ip.com by which it could be accessed remotely. The only problem was that the DSM setup would not allow me to secure the DS by enabling HTTPS connections. Two hours on the phone with a Synology tech did not fix the problem.

Since it was time to upgrade anyway, I swapped out my Linksys WRT310N router for the Netgear WNDR3700 (which MaximumPC gave a kick-ass award, and which the DSM EZ-Internet Wizard has listed as one it can set up automatically)

The wizard could not set my new router up automatically. I went in and set the port-forwarding (with error messages saying that the ports were already in use, which lead me to disable a lot of features in the router) manually: 5000/5000 to the DS IP, 5001/5001 to the FDS IP, remote desktop 3389/3389 to my desktop. When I test these connections in DSM, the results are “normal.”

I can enable the HTTPS connections successfully, but now I can’t access my files through my DDNS hostname.

I’ve done a lot of troubleshooting on this, but nothing seems to work. Probably a router setting I’m missing?

Any and all help will be appreciated. Thanks--

you need to move HTTPS port to 444 for example, and it will be working....

Ikalmar, thanks for answering my question. Would you be extremely specific? Do you mean in a router setting, port-forwarding?

yep you need to forward external TCP 444 port to inside address of Diskstation TCP 443

Thanks for your response. When I got the email notice, I went to read your comment, but the E-E servers were down.

Finally I got it to work last night.
