synology plusnet hub 1 firewall port


I have a synology DS720+ which has application called Drive (Private cloud)

Fromt thesynology site they state the application needs port 6690 to be open


Therefore from the firewall (Advanced) I have added 

TCP 6690 6690 

However using the External IP address as given by the plusnet router

I can not connect to the Cloud Drive Storage

Event Log 

11:06:52, 14 Aug.           IN: ACCEPT [57] Connection closed (Port Forwarding: TCP []:6690 <-​-​> [999.143.49.135]:6690 -​ -​ -​ [999.143.49.135]:1024 ESTABLISHED/ESTABLISHED local_dev NAPT)

NOTE 999 is not the real external IP address , just changed in case

If I use the internal IP (Same WiFi) then I can connect 

Using Synology Quickconnect does work , but would prefer not to use this as Quickconnect is soft blocked by my company.


Any thoughts.
