asked on

outbound VPN connections

giganews and slickvpn and many other companies offer encrypted vpn connections.

you have to install a client software, but is possible to configure QNAP to go outbound to internet using the vpn service?


can openvpn which is available on the qnap do outbound vpn connections?

If the QNAP has OPENVPN, then you will be able to use it as an SSL VPN server and vpn to your internal network from anywhere.
On QNAP you can't use any of those proprietary VPNs. OpenVPN is different, because it is an open standard, and it can work as server or client. It always needs an OpenVPN partner, though.

Depending on how those proprietary VPNs work, you can set up a PC as VPN router, and connect QNAP that way. But that could be a lot of work, or impossible.

I know there are vpn partners out there.

Just need to find a way to make a connection (client) to the VPN service (VPN server - openvpn partner)
Why do you need a VPN partner service?
You can run OpenVPN on any system you  like.. even your own @home or work...

these are the services I want to use:

However I do not want to install the client on every computer at home, I want it on the router. I have draytek router - does anybody know how to configure the draytek router so that ALL the devices on the network and encrypted.

was thinking of this service unless somebody else has used some other service:

In general, using a service based on OpenVPN should work on routers. The only issue I see is getting the router to use NAT on the OpenVPN interface - else all traffic will flow thru with your original private IPs, which won't be of any use over OpenVPN for sure.

PPTP might even work better, as you have configuration examples for Vigor to Windows ( http://www.draytek.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=itemlist&task=category&id=343:windows-to-vigor&Itemid=293&lang=en) ). PPTP will automatically NAT.

I need to still find a provider which will encrypt the internet connection at router level. so the settings need to go in the router.
