GL-AR150 Version 3.017

Hello,

I’m using the GL-AR150 as a VPN router for my Roku and it works great but I have one problem I wish for the Roku to share my files my Nas-drive. My question is how can I do this ?

Thank You


#2

you need to use vpn policy.

In AR150, add your Nas-drive to policy not to use vpn.


#3

By the 3.022 firmware you have to put your local subnet in the list of vpn exclusion…

I have reverted back to the stock firmware.

I’m still having problem so let me explain the set up a bit more.

I have a GL-AR150 Version 3.017 using it as a second router/wifi to connect my Roku by the vpn.
The GL-AR150 is conected to my Isp ( Orange France) router by cable
The Roku is given 192.168.8. * by the GL-AR150
I have a nas-drive conected to the the Isp router with a Ip: 192.168.1.* so the Roku can’t find the files on the nas-drive.
Is there away to resolve this ?

I search the internet and here but unfortunately I can not find a solution. Maybe one of your users can help me.

You have to use 3.022 firmware and in the section vpn policies set an exclusion for 192.168.1.0/24 or for the ip of your NAS.


See main and the mini-router networks?

I have tried this but the Roku still can’t see the nas-drive (from my little understanding there are still on different networks 192.168.8. * for the Roku given by the GL Ar150and the Nas-drive on 192.168.1 given by the Isp router.
Have I done something wrong ?


#8

I have the same situation and vpn policies works great: my devices (android box and linux stb) on 192.168.8.x AR 750 lan can access my NAS on the main lan 192.168.1.x

Hi,

Can you post how you have it set - I may have it set wrongly screen shot would be great.

How do you have the mini router set-up ?

Chris

PS:
Can any of the Tv boxes see the Nas?

https://docs.gl-inet.com/en/3/app/vpn_policies/

All my devices connected to gl router can access my NAS on the main lan because my exclusion on vpn policy is 192.168.1.0/24


#11

Do you devices have fixed address?


#12

Only NAS has fixed ip. The other devices can access it by ip not by name.


#13

I’m sorry to say this is not working for me.

Post your configuration…some screenshots…
