Synology DiskStation, iTunes Server and Time Machine: the Forgotten Ports

A hint for those who aren't able to connect their iTunes to the Synology DiskStation iTunes server or who are having a hard time getting the Time Machine directory to present itself on the Finder: on the DiskStation interface (DSM 3.1), check all the appropriate built-in application ports ("Bonjour," "Synology Assistant," "iTunes Server," etc.) and create a custom rule opening the TCP range from 9997 to 10000. This last step solved all network connection problems between our Mac and the DiskStation services.
