I have installed VPN server and configured the Synology VPN server. This works fine with the app on my phone. I then also configured the router as VPN client under the Internet connection and now I can not VPN back into it. I am using quick connect and the IP address is correct. Is there any additional setting to make this work?

By activating VPN on your gateway device you are essentially closing yourself from the outside world. Using an external VPN, you want that provider to be able to port forward traffic, and that usually happens.

What you might try is the Multiple Gateway option in DSM > Control Panel > Network > advanced settings (button). There is a check box for multiple gateways. See if that will help out.
 
The strange thing is that the photo service from the Synology NAS still works. I found a very good post that explains the issue in more details and also how to fix it.

My mistake, I totally failed by not picking up that you have this configured on your router. So my previous answer has no weight in this scenario.

OHHH, I totally missed this too - I assumed he had it set up on his DS920+. So, same goes for my answer. :-(
