How to configure Synology 6.1 NAS?

This is a tutorial on how to set up NordVPN on a Synology DiskStation Manager versions 6.1 and later.

  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.

    You can find your NordVPN service credentials at the Nord Account dashboard. Copy the credentials using the buttons on the right.

  7. Select all options and click Apply.

  8. Select the created profile and click Connect.

    The status of this profile will change to Connected when the connection is established.

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:
