Synology NAS is a network-attached storage device with a variety of functions including backing up computer drive and managing and storing media files. Your Synology NAS can be covered with VPN protection in 2 ways:
Before you start setting up VPN on Synology NAS using L2TP, you need to generate the required VPN configurations in your User Office. Check out the guide How to manually create VPN configurations for detailed instructions.
The VPN configurations for L2TP protocol will include chosen VPN server domain name, pre-shared key (psk), login, and password.
Before you enable the VPN connection, we recommend to turn off IPv6 on your Synology NAS. This will help you avoid IPv6 traffic leaks outside the VPN tunnel.
To do this, follow the few simple steps below:
The VPN profile you’ve just created will appear on the Network Interface window. To establish connection with the VPN server, click on your new VPN Profile and press Connect.
That’s it! The Synology VPN setup is complete and your Synology NAS traffic is now protected by KeepSolid VPN Unlimited.
To disconnect from the VPN server on your Synology, navigate to Control Panel > Network > Network Interface. Click on the relevant VPN profile and press Disconnect.
