Hi there,

I've set up successfully DDNS + OpenVPN on my Synology DS215J / DSM 7 . Internet Access "on the go" is working well.

Additionally I want to route specific ports through the NAS to a server, which is connected through the OpenVPN. Meaning: I want to call DDNS:5xxx, which should be tunnelled to a server behind the VPN. Port forwarding is enabled on the router, where the NAS (DS215J) is connected, but whatever I do, port 5xxx is not "open".

Is it possible to let port 5xxx be accessible through the VPN (or not)?
If so, I was not yet able to find out how.

DS215J is using DSM 7.
 
Thank you, got it to work: issue was, that I was expecting TCP port forwarding through the VPN, which was setup with UDP.
