Open VPN help needed

Unread post by PeetRdam » Wed Jan 03, 2018 3:52 pm

Hi there,

I connected my Synology RT 1900 AC (SRM 1.1.6-6931 Update 1) with VPN
Newshosting VPN: OpenVPN connection
On the synology: The VPN is connected.
But when i go to find my IP site there is still my Ziggo router IP address

What step am I missing here?
An extra setting on the synolgy or configuration on the Ziggo modem?

You got the answer already within the Dutch Synology forum.

For other readers (English):
Seems you have set the wrong interface priority.
Go to "Network Center" ----> Internet ----> second tab at the top "Smart WAN" ----> button "Interface Priority"
Choose VPN interface for number 1 and WAN for number 2 (you can change by up & down button).
