Download Station doesn't download via VPN

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Download Station doesn't download torrents if VPN is connected.

Any ideas why it can happen? 

 

Thank you.

Could be that you have enabled on the vpn profile the use of the remote gateway.

Can you be more specific?

I 'm not sure I understood you. 

Attached two screenshots with VPN and default gateway addresses.

VPN by seed4.me.

 

Thank you!

That second screenshot you posted is not the vpn’s advanced settings screen. It’s DSM’s network configuration screen. Select your vpn and then click on the edit button.

Untick the « use default gateway on remote network » option. Now try again with Download station.

 

Don’t forget to restart the vpn connection.

 

Also if I may I would suggest using Openvpn or L2TP. PPTP is old and not safe anymore.

Ok try this. re-enable the « use default gateway on remote network » on the VPN profile.

 

Now within the General tab, click the advanced settings. Then enable as below:

Surprised. Relaunch your download station as well as all your network connections then try again. It should work in principal. 😕
