Assigning static internal IP address for ASUS AiCloud/FTP-application

    Not sure I'm putting this question in the right subforum, so many to chose from.

    I'm on a Asus RT-N66W (same as RT-N66U, just different colour) with AsusWRT-Merlin firmware. It has a function to work as a FTP server through Asus DDNS (myusername.asuscomm.com) but even though I run a VPN client 24/7 on the router it still reveals my true IP to the Asus DDNS-service thus anyone look it up through iplookup.asus.com/nslookup.php

    It seems that all applications installed on the router is communicating not using the VPN which kind of makes sense. I had the same problem with the bittorrent client that I'm using on the router but I managed to solve that by following a guide and now I have Transmission installed on the router and it uses the VPN client. The solution was to assign and bind Transmission a specific internal IP address and then just put that address to be routed in the VPN client on the router.

    My question is basically, how do I assign and bind an internal IP address to Cloud Disk/FTP DDNS service? Surely it must be the same way as the solution for the Transmission application? If so, how do I go about it?

    Thanks! :)
