How to Set Up and Use ExpressVPN on ASUSTOR NAS

ExpressVPN supports manual OpenVPN configurations. So, you can set up ExpressVPN on your ASUSTOR NAS by configuring it manually, picking a specific VPN server location, and encrypting your data using AES-256 encryption.

We'll also add that ExpressVPN doesn't provide a list of supported ASUSTOR NAS devices. Still, as long as your NAS device supports OpenVPN connections, you should be good to go. You can also check your device's manual to see whether it works with VPNs.

And now, let's show you how to get ExpressVPN on your ASUSTOR NAS.
