    GT-AX11000, VPN and Plex

    That's exactly right - the Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is the OS for Synology DiskStation and RackStation products, just like QTS is for QNAP products. Thank you for all your advice - what a wealth of knowledge! Based on the above, I think what I've done (i.e. torrent client through the...

    GT-AX11000, VPN and Plex

    I haven't given this as much attention as I wanted to; it kind of fell by the wayside... Still I thought I'd give an update since I have it working now. I checked with Surfshark but they couldn't help and, while I played around with the ovpn config file some more, I couldn't crack it that way...

    GT-AX11000, VPN and Plex

    I knew smarter people than me would have already dealt with this issue! I can create a VM on the Synology easy enough - that should do it. Still, I'd like to figure it out without doing so...so I'll keep plugging away. I'll keep this thread updated as I go :)

    GT-AX11000, VPN and Plex

    Thanks for your input. It's my fault. I should have looked into this more before choosing a VPN... I just found a deal for Surfshark for ~$20 for 2 years so I kind of jumped at it, as I was in a rush. I honestly thought it would be straightforward to do this but I've never used a VPN before so...

    ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Firmware version 3.0.0.4.384.7979

    I just updated my firmware (now on 3.0.0.4.384_8011-gf86f4e8) and this issue has been resolved. My VPN settings survive a reboot!!! EDIT: I have to add a 'sometimes' to this. It's not consistent. When I rebooted it from the router interface, it seems to do fine and the VPN settings survive and...

    GT-AX11000, VPN and Plex

    Sorry, I should have given a little more info on what else I do via the Synology. Here's a run down.... So, I do use a private tracker so ratio is important for me. I have an unlimited internet plan but I recently got a little email from my ISP about 'excessive usage'.... Umm...woops. Don't...

    Aah, lucky you! You presume correctly!!! :)

    GT-AX11000, VPN and Plex

    That's thinking outside the box! I bond them (link aggregation) to increase/support transfer speeds... But, even if not, you can't define what runs through which - i.e. I couldn't set run Plex through one and the rest of the activity through another.... I mucked around for a few hours with the...

    GT-AX11000, VPN and Plex

    It's an option but definitely not my preference. Before I had this router, I had the VPN set up on the Synology itself but it was buggy. If I had to reboot my router for any reason, it wouldn't automatically reconnect through the VPN and a key app I use would stop entirely. I would have to go in...

    GT-AX11000, VPN and Plex

    Thanks for your response. I'm not sure that'll work. The Plex server is on my Synology NAS, which has lots of other things going on too - all the rest of those connections, I want through the VPN. The Plex server is the only thing that I don't. The exception list is based on the device IP, not...

    GT-AX11000, VPN and Plex

    Hi All, I'm struggling with how to enable remote access to Plex while using a VPN. Wondering if anyone has any experience with this. I've got an Asus GT-AX11000 running the latest firmware (3.0.0.4.384_8011-gf86f4e8). I've got my Plex server running on a Synology DS918+. Everything worked...

    ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Firmware version 3.0.0.4.384.7979

    Agreed. Still an issue for me. Have to go through unticking, applying, re-ticking and applying every single time I reboot... Thankfully that's not very often though. No response from Asus

    ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Firmware version 3.0.0.4.384.7979

    Just wanted to let you know that I've reported this VPN issue through the Feedback tab on the router interface. I incorporated your feedback and noted that it's mildly frustrating when you're on the local network, but entirely prohibitive if you need to do a remote reboot. Asked for a fix...

    Port forwarding and VPN

    Ha! Just my luck! I can find very little on this for my router...but I'll try searching the rog forum. Thanks for letting me know - saved me staring at this for ages trying to figure it out! :)

    Port forwarding and VPN

    I want to achieve the same thing on a GT AX-11000. Haven't started or done a lot of research yet but, on just my initial scan, it's slim pickings and seriously over my head! If you find a straightforward solution, please post it up!
