Since Synology Downloadstation does not support any proxys you also have to run e.g. a torrent or NZB client inside the same container. Only the traffic inside the container will be routed through the VPN.
The only alternative is to setup an extra machine (e.g. old Synology, if you have one) just handling your downloads and VPN connection.
P.S.: I really miss my DownloadStation. It is so much better than Deluge (what I am using now inside the Docker container). Hope Synology adds SOCKS proxy support some day - then you could just run a SOCKS proxy inside the Docker container running the VPN
Thats my question though. What happens if the VPN connection drops (Can't reconnect), or say your docker gets rebooted, it will come back online using your connection but without a VPN, thus making you susceptible. Ideally I was hoping for a route of some type within Download Station that won't allow it to pass traffic unless a VPN connection is present.
I'd assume this solution is addressing the original topic of how to access NAS apps externally while running the VPN, rather than the "evolved" topic of how to stop data transport unless the VPN is active.
