8001 is only used for _source_ connections and not client connections. client connections are always provided on the main 'portbase'

people have used network monitoring tools to see what is going on (cannot remember any that have been explicitly used) to determine the networking load / rate coming out of the DNAS (there's nothing natively built into the DNAS in either version to do such things).

though some routers people have found have issues when doing loop back connections like you're describing you are attempting for testing the server connection.
