Port 22 is open for external inbound traffic on  How do I close it?  Blocking the service does not work.

I am getting a slew of messages like the following from my NAS

Service blocking is (silly but true) to limit the access to services on the Internet.


Well possible, your Orbi has UPnP PMP active, and your NAS does make use of UPnP PMP to forward the port on it's own. Check the Automatic Router Configuration or however it's named on your undefined NAS.
