Part of the Furniture
Sorry, I don't have experience with those scenarios to give you an answer. Someone on the NAS thread can probably help with those questions.Thanks a lot !! This is the best guide I have seen! Link saved.
However it doesn't answer all of my questions. To be more specific:
- What happens to accesses within my network? I have devices such as cameras, alarms, switches, lamps etc. There are also smart TVs, apple TVs and other similar devices. There is no way I can install a client there.
- Then there are my two QNAP NASes. I use my old NAS as a file server for backup purposes. My next step is to move my old NAS to my brother-in-law's house a few kms away. He will move his old one to our house. How will VPN affect this setup (using Rsync and RTRR)? What needs to be changed?
- How will I access the QNAP mobile apps? I use them to access the new NAS from the outside. I have to use QNAPs myqnapcloud as DDNS. I can't use any other DDNS to get it to work (I have tried).
- How do I handle the manual port forwarding done for my cameras and for the NAS access? For QNAP, UPNP only works for one (1) NAS.
On the VPN server page, there is an option to give access to the LAN only, Internet or Both. But it is an all or nothing setting. You can' set it my device.
On one site I support, I needed to access the Windows Server machine. I assigned a static IP to the Windows Server. I then used the Windows Remote Desktop app to connect to it over the VPN connection. You may have to do something similar depending on the OS used by the device. I've seen similar questions posted on the DD-WRT forum site.
