Re: Remote access and VPN

If the VPN client on the router still connects to a remote VPN server, the router still wouldn't need to be port-forwarded.

If you want to access some service located in your home network from places outside of it, you have to setup in your router a "port mapping" or "virtual servers" etc. Please look at your router manual for further information. Or ask your question on basic networking setup related forums, because your question is not related to QBittorrent directly.
