This guide was produced using QTS v4.3.6
  1. Download and extract the IVPN .ovpn config files to your computer system.

  2. In the QNAP web interface, open the AppCenter and search for qvpn.

  3. Click the + Install button to add the QVPN Service app to your device if it is not installed already.

  4. Open the QVPN Service app and under the the VPN Client area, click VPN Connection Profiles. Click the Add button and choose OpenVPN.

  5. Use the file picker dialogue box to choose the VPN server location you prefer and click OK.

  6. Enter your account ID that begins with 'ivpn' and any password in the credential fields and (optionally) change the Profile Name to something different. Click the Apply button.

    Only your account ID is used for authentication. The password field can be left empty or set to anything if your client software requires a non-blank password.

    Note: You are free to choose whichever server location you prefer. Our Japan server is used here only as an example.

  7. Add as many VPN server profiles as you would like.

  8. Click the Connect icon under the Actions column. The connection may take 10 to 30 seconds and the Status indicator will turn green when the connection is successful.

  9. Click the Use VPN as NAS Default Gateway button for extra settings related to the default gateway and failover.

    If you check the Allow other network devices in the same subnet to connect to the VPN through the NAS option, change the default gateway on your computer system to the local network IP address of the QNAP device to route all of the Internet traffic on your computer through the NAS VPN.

    Use our standard DNS server, our AntiTracker DNS, or our Hardcore Mode AntiTracker on your computer system to complete the routing setup.

  10. Instead of using servers separated by a great distance, you might prefer to use a location with multiple servers. This may offer a more seemless and familiar network experience if failover occurs:

    You will have to make a copy of the .ovpn file and edit the server hostname prior to importing both files. Any text editor, like WordPad or TextEdit, will handle the editing. The server hostname is on line 4.

    Our server status page lists all of our servers.
