Configuring Qfile connection after having established QVPN connection

Post by PIRATA! » Sun Apr 07, 2019 2:12 am

I have configured QVPN on both TS-251+ and my Android smartphone...but after having established the tunnel, if I have to access to my files stored in my nas I hit on Apps in the QVPN Android app, and then again on Qfile....and the Qfile installed on my smartphone starts up asking me to connect to my NAS!!

I a bit confused as I though that QVPN app established already the tunnel + the connection with my nas directly so to use directly apps remotely...

Do I have to launch a connection to the nas using Qfile app so to access to files??
Do I have to create a brand new connection to my nas using maybe some particular IP address?? I see under available connection methods a list of Hosts: By Host/IP, By LAN IP, By myQNAPcloud, By CloudLink, By WAN IP....

Please help me understand this practical new world for me.

Thank you.

when the vpn is established, all app communications should be done by lan ip .. nothing else

lan ip of your nas

tunnel subnets should be traversed transparently
