It is not using any parameter besides the das.id in the incoming request URL to do some type of authentication and differentiate each incoming request. This is a bad design for a server application)

The visitor information is not figure in *visible* part of the HTTP request viz the URL.

If you are having problems viewing this email, copy and paste the following into your browser:
http://dns-name/go/rd/YYYYYY. The latter, of course, does not have the das.id that I spoke of earlier.

The URL http://dns-name/go/rd/YYYYYY is different for every invitation that is sent out.
Like you observed, this URL redirects to the URL which has the das-id. But it also sets a cookie containing the user identity. So the subsequent URLs does not contain information about the visitor.
Hence visitor identity is readily available on every request, and the access control are performed before serving the content.

There is no server on the ReadyNAS Duo that *accepts* requests on any port. So even after blocking all the ports for incoming traffic ReadyNAS Photo works and the shared photos remain accessible.
However, outgoing communication on ports 80 and optionally 8081 on your ReadyNAS Duo should be allowed. If you block outgoing communication either on 80 or on 8081, the ReadyNAS Add photos has to be restarted, for the shared photos to be accessible.
Please ensure that you have 1.7 version of ReadyNAS Photos Add on installed.
