NICS on NAS routing traffic

  • hi all,

    im very interested in getting a QNAP TS-231P as it has dual NICS but couple of questions before i buy

    im going to install on it PLEX and a VPN eg torguard/nordvpn/hide my ***

    i want to bind PLEX on NIC 1 and bind the VPN on NIC 2

    basically if i want to access PLEX from the LAN/WAN i want it go in/out via NIC 1 and i want the VPN to use NIC 2 only

    obviously the reason why i want to use seperate NICS for different things is because as soon as i start the vpn client it will get a random IP address from a VPN server and it wont get my ISP IP and when i want to access PLEX from outside i want it to use my ISP IP

    is this possible?

    many thanks,


  • dont worry about this now as im not going to do it this way no more

    the reason is because i would need to spend £££££ on a NAS to get a top dog one to install plex on so it can do the transcoding to 1080p
