port forwarding a specific port through vpn

RCF

New Around Here
I have a nas D918+ with Qbittorrent docker (https://registry.hub.docker.com/r/linuxserver/qbittorrent/) and i am trying for days google everywhere even on asus merlin wiki and can do it right .

What i am trying to do is i have a expressvpn conf on vpn1 client, and i want to do is that qbit port in that case "6881" goes throw the vpn1 instead off my isp.

Can you give me any light on this matter.

Thanks

You can't configure a port forward through a VPN unless that provider gives you a static IP, and allows you to configure port forwarding on their own end. A typical VPN provider will basically apply a second layer of NAT in front of you, and you have no control over that layer.

As RMerlin said, "unless that provider gives you a static IP, and allows you to configure port forwarding on their own end".

So check with your VPN provider whether that's a service they offer.
