Hi. i have installed my pfsense router yesterday, everything works fine exept the Firewall blocking my Qnap dns service myqnapcloud.
I know that i have to open the ports, but because i am new to pfsense, i don't know exactly how.
When i go to Firewall - Rules - LAN and add a new Rule, i don't know what settings i have to put in.
you wouldn't put anything on the lan, you would need to create a port forward for the port that service uses. Or you would have to use UPnP for the application running on your nas to auto open the port.
To be honest I wouldn't suggest opening up that to the public internet unless you could lock down the source port to specific IPs you or your friends would be coming from.
If you really want to open it, and you know the ports it uses - then
Firewall / NAT / Port Forward
And forward the port to your nas IP. Again not very secure to open up such services to the public internet. Can you not just vpn into your network if you want to access your nas remotely?

@johnpoz VPN would be my preferred final solution, but i'm really new in this firewall, network stuff and i don't really get it, how to set up a VPN.
Run thru the openvpn vpn wizard..
The book is now available for everyone.
So that is going to have all the info you would need to setup remote access.
And the handouts avail as well - there is 2 parter on remote vpn access. I you have specific questions - start a thread in the vpn section with your specifics.
