    You sure can.  You just need to connect over VPN, and access the NAS/Remote desktop just as if you are at home.  Everything will be encrypted

    This is good to know. I connected with the OpenVPN client on my iPad. I can surf the internet but cannot access anything locally. I’m trying the MS RDesktop client and that does not work and cannot connect to my NAS system. I did noticed the VPN IP address is not the same as my local network. Any suggestions?

    Can you connect via an IP address?  The VPN IP address is connected to your local network, so anything on your network is visible to you.

    That worked. Is there a way to configure the VPN connection to use my local DNS servers?

    If I use the fully qualified DNS name of the NAS box i’m able to connect.

    Is your DNS something xxx.local?  If it is part of MDNS, it may not work, since firewalla VPN server is on a different network segment.  If it is part of the DNS system, one way is to add this line to your .ovpn file (advanced work)

    dhcp-option DNS 192.x.x.x
