    There is no such thing like "typo exceptions" with OpenDNS anymore, and it wouldn't help anyway.  Your issue must be of a different nature, most likely unrelated to OpenDNS.

    "I cannot access my Synology NAS box when I am not at home..."

    Check the port forwarding rules on your router, and ensure your Dynamic DNS hostname is updated with the correct IP address.

    "...and my Synology box is reporting that its DDNS service can not connect to the outside world."

    Check the network settings on your NAS, IP address, subnet mask, gateway, DNS servers.

    I have a similar issue, although I'm now sure my Synology NAS is correctly setup.  Port forwarding and DDNS are OK.  When trying to connect from outside, I can't get in (webpage never answers).  Maybe because I access my nas with the DNS from Synology (xxx.synoloy.me) and this is considered a rerouting (or portal)?  I believe it is being stopped by OpenDNS but I'm not sure OpenDNS can block incoming traffic (I thought that it blocks only outgoing traffic).

    You are not only in the wrong thread, but in the wrong forum.  OpenDNS has nothing to do with accessing your network from outside.  It just serves your DNS requests raised from inside your network.

    "I have a similar issue"  -  LOL, in no way!

    "I'm not sure OpenDNS can block incoming traffic (I thought that it blocks only outgoing traffic)."

    A DNS service like OpenDNS cannot block traffic at all, not incoming and not outgoing.  OpenDNS can just block DNS queries from your network, not "traffic".  A DNS service has no power over your internet connection.  DNS is the phone book of the internet, not the phone lines.

    Dear rotblitz,

    This shows at the bottom of my Live Parental Controls Default Settings screen:  "Tip: Do you have a printer or file server that you need to access? Add them to your list of typo exceptions."

    If there is "no such thing as typo exceptions in OpenDNS anymore", why does this show on my screen? The router is brand new and is current on its firmware updates.

    It's showing on the screen because the firmware has not been updated to remove references to a feature that OpenDNS removed from it's offerings years ago.

    Despite the router being brand new and running the latest firmware for that model, it's entirely possible that your model is an old model that firmware updates and development for stopped a long time ago. Regardless, it doesn't really matter since OpenDNS currently does not offer any sort of typo exception feature.

    Of course the Tip could be referring to something that Netgear offers in the firmware, rather than an OpenDNS feature that they are leveraging. If that's the case you'll need to check the Netgear support forum if you have questions about it, rather than the OpenDNS forum.

    In Live Parental Control on the Netgear R7000 router, there is still an option to add typo exceptions.  login to router, go to parental controls, then scroll down to where it says "Tip: Do you have a printer or file server that you need to access? Add them to your list of typo exceptions." and click on the typo exceptions link.  Then click the typos exceptions tab at the top of the next page.

    Not sure why you post this here.  As mattwilson9090 said already last year, "the firmware has not been updated to remove references to a feature that OpenDNS removed from it's offerings years ago".

    Do you face problems with accessing internal devices within your LAN?  As I said above already, this has nothing to do with Netgear LPC, but is of a different nature.  Typo exceptions won't help here.
