The only way to do that will be that you have to manually edit the OVPN file from your VPN provider.

See this article for the basics around it:
https://www.reddit.com/r/PleX/comments/ ... h_openvpn/

Once you have the edited .OVPN file, then you can use that modified version and setup your VPN client on QNAP with it.
Thanks Paul,
No luck.
The reddit bit I followed and got it right I think except where to put it?
I put it at the very bottom (just pasted on the end) of the 2 ovpn I use and saved as new names.

They connected but Plex did not....
Tried on/off port forwarded - every option and combination I could come up with... failed.
