This is the tutorial on how to set up your Synology NAS based on DiskStation Manager (DSM) 6.1 version. Instructions for an older, 5.1 version can be found in our Help Center here.

  1. Login to your Synology and go to Control Panel.

  2. Navigate to Network.

  3. Go to Network -> Network Interface -> Create -> Create VPN Profile.

  4. Select OpenVPN (via importing a .ovpn file) and click Next.

  5. Fill in the fields as in the following picture. We suggest using our Recommended server utility here, and download the server configuration file from there:

  6. Import the downloaded .ovpn configuration file and click Next.

  7. Select all options and click Apply.

  8. Select the created profile and click Connect.

In case of any issues while trying to establish the connection, open the .ovpn configuration file on your computer and add this line:

log-append /var/log/NordVPN.log

Afterward, import the edited .ovpn file again into Synology and try connecting again. Send us the log file from this directory:
