Best network protocol for KODI to externally access a Synology NAS
#6
Windows OpenVPN client.

That's the client you'll need. When you set up the server on the Synology (I think I gave you some reference links for that before?) you can export a configuration file from it for the client. You just need to download the client and install it, then link that configuration file to it and it should allow you to connect the cabin PC into your home network remotely. Then all your normal connection methods (SMB, NFS etc) should work in exactly the same way as if you were at home.

This kind of VPN call back home is one of the legitimate uses for VPNs in relation to Kodi, but as noted before as it is outside of Kodi it's not something we really officially support in detail. But there are OpenVPN forums that can give you help if needed.
