Synology VPN

We have IPSec between two offices with two Zywall USG 100.

  1. zywall
  2. zywall

Our synology is in .50 network. It also runs a VPN server. When a user connects via Synology VPN it is able to talk to .50 network, but unable to reach .53 network. What rule do I need to create and where to allow the communication?

Thank you for your help.

    You should ask to Synology Forum, IMVHO. This is part of routing table of your NAS (if availble).

    Otherwise you can use L2TP VPN to allow a user to connect only to Synology AND .53 network.

  • If you have NAS in your topology, check your NAS and Zywall USG100 .50 routing table first if it has .53 routing in it.

    IF not,you can add policy route on both your NAS and Zywall USG .50 routing table to make the communication success.

    Hello and thank you for taking the time to look into my "issue." I have been working with zywall for very short time. I already have some routing created. Is this what you mean? My goal here is to have the user that is in .53 network, connect via synology vpn from outside and then RDC to his PC.

    @cpg_juraj What is the PC's IP when it connects to synology by VPN?

    Synology VPN is set to assign IP addresses in a range - I tried to add a rule to allow traffic from a created object for this specific range to .53 network. I might be missing something or not doing it correctly.

    Your scenario is similar to this FAQ.

    At the site .53 network, create a policy route.

    Incoming: any, Source: any, Destination: -, next-hop: VPN tunnel

    At the site .50 network, create a static route.

    Destination IP:

    Subnet Mask: <the subnet mask of ->

    Next Hop: 192.168.50.x (Synology's IP)

    Create a policy route.

    Incoming: any, Source: any, Destination:, next-hop: VPN tunnel
