This page lets you manage your LaCie NAS's automatic port forwarding. In order that the LaCie NAS be accessible to the internet, it's necessary that certain ports be opened in your router. If you need to change the ports to be forwarded for HTTP, HTTPS, or remote (LaCie MyNAS) connections, you can do so from this page.
To change the port for one of these services, click on the value in the NAS Port and Router Port columns. To disable port forwarding for a service, click the configuration icon (pencil) and then select Disable.
