I have a File server name Synology, it has option to share files to external users, i tired to share the files but remote users not able to access it,
i have two Firewall in my Domain, one UTM version 9.711-5 another XG.
On XG i just created DNAT and allowed the fileserver to http and https access, this work fine and remote users have no issues.
But from UTM i did the same, i done creating rule for file server and allowed port 5000 and Dnat rule, but it not work.
Any suggestion would be appreciated
Opening up your file server to external (internet) access is not a good idea regardless of the port. Have your users connect to your network via vpn. I know for sure UTM supports this, and am pretty sure xg does too.
If you insist on allowing direct access, show a pic of your dnat rule. I assume the synology file server also has its own firewall, has external access been enabled there?
Can't stress the sentiment Jay Jay has given - you should consider VPN access through the firewall devices. This is terribly bad practice to open your network like that.

Thanks for your reply, there is a built-in firewall enabled on NAS, also on NAS external access is enabled, now the issue is port 5001 on firewall, this port getting block byUTM.
How do you see the drops?
Maybe just the proper gateway to the second firewall isn't set?

from the firewall log section port 5000 shows default drop
I don't see any pics.
Please show pics of all relevant rules and definitions.
Can you give us the screenshot of the UTM from that drops?
i tried to take the screenshot for packet drop but surprisingly i didn't find any drops, however the access from external still not work.
