Looks like there's some serious IT horsepower here - hoping someone will lend a hand to a n00b in need. Just set up a new DS212J (running DSM 3.2-1955) attached to an ASUS RT-N56U router (running latest firmware), and everything is going great...except remote access. I tried Synology's EZ Internet wizard, and it IDs my router, says that it sets up static IP and port forwarding for me, and that I'm good to go for web station remote access, photo station, etc. Then I test it off my LAN, either through the external IP address/port or DDNS I set up on no-ip, and I get a 504 timeout error every time. Likewise, testing connections in Synology's Router Setup leads to "Failed" messages. Googled a bit, read up on things, and tried to set up static IP myself (followed Windows 7 directions on portforward.com) and also port forwarding manually in ASUS's WAN settings, and I get the same result...I think I did those things right, but I'm not 100% sure...none of the portforward.com walkthroughs look exactly like my ASUS' settings page, and I feel like I've only set up static IP on my laptop, not on the router or NAS itself...when I tried to do turn DHCP off in the ASUS WAN settings, it told me the subnet mask I got from ipconfig (255.255.255.0) was invalid. Huh? Isn't that like the default subnet mask? Do I need to adjust settings for both the router and the NAS to be static IP, or just one? What am I missing?? Help!
