Because it is rsync protocol not http. inreto.de site is fully functioning at at moment.

Wrong. Instructions are for specific server setup on Zyxel NSA3** series and specific PC client setup for accessing server on NAS. As your intention is to use openvpn service as the client, then it is totally different and simpler case. You should use your VPN service provider's instructions for adjusting client config file-/ffp/etc/openvpn/client/client.conf. For openvpn client daemon service start use command:
Code: Select all
sh /ffp/start/openvpn-client.sh start
For installing ffp0.7arm openvpn package use these instructions:
1. # Check, if you have slapt-get package installed. If no, then proceed further else proceed from step3:
2. # If there is no slapt-get installed, then create funpkg cache dir for br2 repo in case it not exists and install new slapt-get package manager:
Code: Select all
[ -d /ffp/funpkg/cache/br2 ] || mkdir -p /ffp/funpkg/cache/br2
/ffp/bin/wget -nv http://downloads.zyxel.nas-central.org/Users/barmalej2/ffp/0.7/arm/packages/slapt-get-0.10.2t-arm-2.txz
funpkg -i slapt-get-0.10.2t-arm-2.txz
3. # Update slapt-get lists and upgrade core packages:
4. # Restart sshd daemon service after upgrading, if you are using it:
5. # Install openvpn package with dependent packages together:

then I assume ALL processes accessing the internet goes through the network/tunnel device.
You will be surprised, but it is not so easy as it seems at first glance, either way you had it running already.
BTW. You didn't tell your NAS model and kernel version, which is important for drivers.
Also, ffp 0.7 is the LATEST version.. Is there another newer version???
Yes, it is latest and outdated version. I have plans to release major update for ffp next month.
So, it should be possible to DIY self-repackage a funpkg 0.5 to be 0.7 compatible?
Everything is possible, it is just matter of time, patience and desire. Edit: Didn't read carefully that question. I am not sure, but if clearly remember they incompatible.
P.S. As another option instead ffp consider installing entware-ng:
