My Cloud Ex2 Ultra
Apple Time Capsule router
Trying to set up remote server
Enabled ssh with password
enabled “remote server” with password
added port for remote backup 873
added port for ssh 22
when I click on “details” for each port forwarding type, the pop-up says “checking” then says “fail”
I went to portchecktool.com and tried port 873 and 22. Both failed. Went into my airport router and manually set up port forwarding for those, even though NAT-PMP was enabled. Now portchecktool.com can see those open ports.
I went back to my Ex2, rebooted it for good measure, and clicked on details again. I still get the “fail” message.
I have a Qnap NAS that I’d like to rsync backup from one to the other. For kicks, I go to my Qnap and try to set up rsync. I can see the Ex2 but a test button during the setup shows an error message about the port not being open.
I’ve also tried many times to rsync the other direction. In my Ex2 Backup section under “remote backups” I’ve not been successful to see the remote NAS (my Qnap) directory list.
Has anyone seen a port forwarding issue on an Ex2 and an Apple router?
