You can have the same folder names at both ends. Less confusing.
Is the folder mount working?

Yes. Download station goes to one of the folders under mp that are mapped to a folder on the DSM.
Mounted folders look different. On VDSM the mounted folders will have a pipe under them.
Here’s a long version if you need it :)
It works! Thanks so very much for helping me out. This is an awesome solution that I think will be my primary means as I can still utilise my DS mobile apps this way too.

I do now have the same folder names, deleted the old ones. thanks very much mate.

Fantastic. You’re welcome. Just make sure your kill switch is working and go ahead, download the internet now 🚀

We’ll send you a brochure to the new SynoForum satellite VPN service (with a complementary picture of the evil cat). Payment in Bitcoin only 😇

Im going to keep playing with SSH solutions like that from @Rusty too as im curious to learn. It only looks complicated if you don't understand it I guess.

ive configured my router to pass my VDSM IP through a VPN, but not any other IP address. So I can keep my downloading private but also port forward remote streaming and enjoy the internet speeds ive payed for.

I’ve only had it a few weeks. Just had a virgin Super Hub 3 before. It’s very good. Very easy to use, even for a layman like me.

I’m trying to figure out where did you do that. As I said, I don’t have the 2600, but I’m curious (as a potential buyer).

I found this video tour (albeit a bit old). I can’t figure out where to control outbound traffic for individual clients on the LAN!

I can't find the video that educated me, so bear with me:

1. Goto Network centre:

2. goto internet, then VPN settings:

3. Here you'll find the same interface for adding VPN's as you do on DSM, so add what you have and connect. This will pass all of your router traffic through the VPN:

4. Then click on smart WAN:

5. You'll see the set up here. first click on 'interface priority:

6. Make WAN number 1, VPN number 2. That way all your internet traffic will go through your normal route, not the VPN.

7. Then click on policy route. Create a route, add your desired IP, and select VPN on the 'interface' drop down menu.

Now This one selected IP is running through the VPN, whilst the rest of the IP's in the network remain on the WAN. You can pick as many IP's as you want to use the VPN instead.

I see. So you’ve actually used the 2nd WAN port for VPN. I thought the VDSM was configured to connect to VPN through its own network interface. Didn’t know that you can do this.

The few tutorials I saw talks about the 2nd WAN port as a failover port only. It’s clear now. This opens up a lot of possibilities :)
Thank you for posting the screenshots :)

No probs. You can also configure the VDSM to connect to VPN through its own interface too.

Yes of course. That’s what I’m doing with my VDSM, and was doing with DDSM. But no kill switch. I have to take care of that manually by removing the default gateway :(
