In general a VPN client does establish an secured / encrypted tunnel from the VPN client to the other end of the VPN (a VPN server, a VPN concentrator).

If this VPN is an entry path to an anonymizer service run a test connection through the VPN tunnel and check the anonymizer exit IP, typically 1:1 or M:1 NATed from the tunnel.

Connect to something on the other end.
ADVICE - read the manual (online) and use the forum search feature (upper right hand corner) before posting.
Chances are very good you will find your answer.


It is a recommended to use RAID. It is also recommended to have external backups. RAID is designed to protect you from disk failure and keep your system running and data accessible while the disk is replaced and the RAID rebuilt. Backups will allow you to recover data that is lost or corrupted, or from catastrophic system failure. One does not replace the other.

If I understand you right this connection test only works if I configure VPN client so it "Allow other network devices to connect to the VPN through the NAS"?

You can login to the NAS via SSH and run the below command:

curl http://checkip.dyndns.org

It will show the IP your NAS has changed to.
