I want to access my IP cams from WAN whilst OpenVPN client (PIA) is active on my router. The camera streams are fed by the NAS surveillance station, through the QNAP VMobile app for iPhone.
My setup is as follows:
-ASUS RT-AC87U standard firmware with PIA as OpenVPN client installed on the router.
-QNAP NAS with 2 Foscam C1 V2 IP cams.
-Port forward setup for incoming requests for port 443 (SSL port of the NAS) to LAN static IP of the NAS. This is the only port forward on my router.
-UPnP is disabled on the router.
-I am accessing the camera streams using the QNAP VMobile app (but I am open to suggestions for other tools to use).
This all works fine, if PIA is not enabled. But as soon as I enable the PIA VPN on the router, I can't access my IP cams anymore. Just to be clear, I am accessing the IP cams through the NAS, not through the camera itself.
Can't figure out why this is happening, and how to solve it. The IP address given to my router by PIA is correctly reflected in the QNAP remote access service (myQNAPcloud) but somehow the login method through myQNAPcloud does not work anymore if PIA is switched on.
I've contacted both QNAP and PIA but they are pointing to each-other.
Any suggestion are very welcome. Thanks.
