SMB shares over VPN not loading

I’m trying to set it up so that I can access my synology with Infuse also away from home. Other video-player apps (like n-player) allows me to use SMB as long as I’m connected via VPN. This does not work with Infuse for some reason. Just keeps loading until error.
Unfortunately, mapping the shares with FTP does not work at all, I get the root folder but when trying to go deeper I just get: “Empty folder”
Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated
thanks

We have an all-new SMB implementation currently in progress which may help with cases like this.

We’re hoping to have this available soon, so please keep an eye out for updates.
