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: ... 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.
Qnap TVS-1282 - HD - 6x10TB WD white, 2x 10TB Iron Wolf - (Raid 6)
SSD - 2x Samsung 860 Evo 500gb - Thick (Raid 1) - QTS and SSD - 2x Samsung 860 Evo 250gb - Static (Raid 1) - cache
PCI-e - M.2 - 2x Samsung 960 Evo 250gb - Static (Raid 1) - Plex and M.2 - 2x Crucial MX500 500GB - (Raid 1) - VM
Back up - Synology -1817+(8x8) Raid SHR & Drobo 5n - 5x4tb Seagate & Buffalo LinkStation -2x 4TB Seagate = about 170TB all up.
All software is updated as soon as it's available.
I give my opinion from my experience!
