  • If your NAS is on extranet (no firewall) or your router has set up port transmission already, then you can refer to Resource HTTP and HTTPS page and you do not need to follow this step and also can go to next section for “Setting Sigfox”.

           (* Note 1: If you use router port transmission, please use router extranet Ip)             

           (* Note 2: CloudLink can not use self-defined port transmission now, so it can not support for this service, but you can use myqnapcloud DDNS service to bind your extranet IP and cooperate with router settings to use.)              

  • If your NAS  can not acquire actual IP and also can not setup the firewall, then you may refer to the following page to use ngrok service: https://ngrok.com/
  • The following steps (Step A to F)  is for your reference only and is provided by third party. After installing application, we will not be responsible for any consequences.

  2. Click “Next”4
  3. Click “Advanced Settings” > “Environment”, click “Add” and enter the following information

    *Note 1: Value of NGROK_PORT will be a port transmission, because ngrok is in container station so the IP address have to set up as docker nat gateway IP then can be connect to your Host. (Default value: 10.0.3.1)  As below picture.4-1*Note 2: Other reference, please refer to:  https://hub.docker.com/r/wernight/ngrok/5
