Synology VPN configuration problem: ovpn file contains invalid parameters

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm trying to create a VPN connection on my Synology DS120j using this guide:
Unfortunately I always receive this message: ovpn file contains invalid parameters. Any tip ? Thanks

I've been informed in another thread that Synology ships OpenVPN 2.3.x. If you are generating your .ovpn file, remember to check the Advanced box and select OpenVPN <2.4.
Did you check that?


Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

Omg, that is the problem. I've just tried with OpenVPN <2.4 and it works. However I need the encryption because of my ISP so I need a way to use the NAS with OpenVPN>2.4, is this achievable in some way ?

Encryption? That comes free of charge. :D Data Channel will be encrypted with AES-256-GCM, of course. Unless you mean tls-crypt, the encryption of the Control Channel, there you're on Synology's good will, I'm afraid.
Thinking about it, what you can try, "don't try this at home", is to download an openvpn binary
to your user's home directory and try executing OpenVPN from there. Of course, you will need to use the command line, therefore SSH, and the Web UI cannot be used, so it's largely a pain to get it automated.
