Quick question - I'm running a Synology DS218+ NAS with an Emby server, which is sat behind a VPN on my ASUS RT-AC86U (Asuswrt-Merlin F/W 384.9).

While it works really well, for some reason it's preventing unfiltered access to the internet for the Emby server. For example, if I add a movie, normally (without a VPN) it will fetch all of the relevant metadata, including covers and other images. When I put it behind the VPN it times out.

I've reached out on the Emby forum, but I think it's more to do with the router than Emby.

Any thoughts/help would be appreciated. Thanks :)
