I have two Synology RT2600ac routers.

One is at home and is using VPN Plus Server. I've enabled pretty much every one of the supported variations.

I'd like to configure the other one as a VPN client so any device attached to it will have its traffic routed through my home internet connection.

I have a "remote" work location that I use frequently. In the end I'd like two wifi routers there... one that uses the local internet connection, and the other that uses VPN to route the traffic through home. So I can easily switch between them on any device.

Every attempt to connect the client router to the server router has failed. The "client" router gives me options to set up VPN as PPTP, Open VPN, Open VPN (via importing a .ovpn file), and L2TP/IPSec, but all fail to connect.

I set up dynamic DNS through Synology (e.g. MYNAME.VPNPlus.to). When I use "ping" it does translate to the correct IP address, but, pings time out. Maybe the service doesn't support replying to ping?

I thought for sure there'd be a tutorial on how to do this and that maybe, being the same brand and model of router, there'd be a nice easy way to set it up... has anyone ever succeeded? Or is there a better way to accomplish the same goal?
