Mysterious QVPN user

Post by KrsCph » Sun May 17, 2020 7:57 am

I've been trying to get remote acces to my QNAP via VPN. It seems to work. For instance, I can log on via the OpenVPN app on my iPhone and I show up as a user in the list of users in "QVPN Service 2" (still don't know how to access files, but I get back to that in a later question).

However, it troubles me that a user no. 2 shows up in the list of users every 2 - 3 minutes (which I then disconnects but the users shows up again). Even though I disconnect the connection in the iPhone, user no 2 pops op again after a few minutes.

Does this makes any sense - pls. advice?

Hmm - seems that the problem disappears when I deactivate UPnP (of course, I've made a manual 'port forward' in the router)
