Hi Everyone.

I am quite new to networking and do need a little help, please:



I have a DLINK NAS that does NOT SUPPORT VPN.

I would like to VPN into the Dlink NAS when not at home.

could I set up a VPN server on a Windows 10 PC, and then access the DLINK NAS by connecting to the Windows 10 PC ? (The Windows 10 PC and DLINK NAS are connected to the same router)

If this will work, I assume I will have to forward the VPN ports to the Windows 10 PC (PC will be using a static IP).

I will also have to use dynamic IP updating app, as my internet connection has a dynamic IP.

In theory, will this setup work?

Are there any obvious pitfalls that I will likely encounter?

 

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

You can use Teamviewer to connect to your Windows 10 machine and use the VPN feature to access the NAS.

Thanks, that sounds very simple.
 

Only problem - I don't see the VPN option when I open Teamviewer.
Am I doing something wrong?

Nevermind - figured it out - Thanks once again. Think this might work for my requirements.
