Remote Access via myQNAPcloud


"myQNAPcloud" is a service made available by QNAP that enables users to publish the contents of their NAS over the internet via DDNS.

Getting started with myQNAPcloud is rather simple. From the app inside QTS, we click the get started button to begin the process.

In the next few steps, we will sign up for a free myQNAPcloud account, register our NAS with the system and enable what services we would like published.

The first step is creating an account with QNAP.

Here we setup the name for the DDNS service.

From here the NAS takes over and configures network components including the router for the service.

About 3- 5 minutes later setup has finished and we are ready to connect to our NAS from the internet.

Above, you can see I have publish the Wed Administration, File Server and Web Server to my account. As I said, you can choose which services you would like access to on the go.
