>The program is completely useless.
This is an incorrect statement.
Believe it or not, WTFast is a legitimate program offering a completely viable service for a reasonable price. It's a VPN service you subscribe to. This is a real thing that happens all the time. It is NOT suitable for everyone and under certain conditions you have to configure your network for it to properly work. Please do more research into what the program actually does.
More on VPNs:
Nord has a support article on how to set up your router as a VPN client so your whole home LAN can be routed through the VPN.
I think any VPN service that supports OpenVPN protocols (which is like... all of them) can be configured on routers that support OpenVPN client functionality.
Something big....these people usually don't keep their mouth shuts so the fact that things have been quite for so long makes me wonder. Could their lives have been threatened in any way? This is the only thing I can think of for them to stay in the dark about the whole thing. YTS, Popcorn Time and all shut down at the same time and big brother isn't in the news bragging about the bust? Something is up, I just hope everyone is okay.
Yep, they only support US, UK, Japan and Canada Netflix. All other locations default to US Netflix.
Good VPN providers have a list of servers that work with Netflix. It changes regularly as Netflix blocks the server IPs.
NordVPN has a free 7 day trial and a list of Netflix compatible servers. I binged most of season 5 with it this evening.
Honestly should never have been implemented. How many of us actually use it? The speeds just simply aren't good enough to justify it over another VPN like PIA?
I get that it's difficult to run PT without money, but there simply isn't a safely legal way to generate it. Even the VPN was the safest course of action.
On a side note, how the shit is the .se fork still standing considering how they are DIRECTLY profiting off of their version?
The domain seems to be transferred to another owner, just like the domain. But the nameservers are incorrect.
However, seems to be just fine. That website also hosts which contains the ip addresses of all servers.
Just want to point out that popcorntime does not get the money from the built in VPN service like many are the explaination from the dev's on why this provider got selected:
"The VPN is a company, different from Popcorn Time (which is a project). They're unrelated, it just happens that the company is offering advantages to PT users, and we added it as a feature.
If you want to make a donation, buying the VPN is absolutely not the way to go, as the money will never land in Popcorn Time.
The only reason why is built in Popcorn Time is to encourage the other providers of VPN to provide their own package to Popcorn Time once we're in 0.4.0, because we've been contacted by many VPN providers looking to use our userbase but none were willing to create a client."
Best way is to VPN your router
Your TL-R600VPN does is not rated for gigabit speeds..
NAT Throughput: 680Mbps
IPsec VPN Throughput: (3DES) 13Mbps
Also why do you have both a Verizon Modem and a Router?
I would typicly expect an ISP modem followed a high end home router, or simply an ISP combo device that does both.
Your setup of ISP Modem -> ISP Router ->personal router is a bit odd.
yes, it does, although netflix keeps making it harder and harder. not sure which netflix you are trying to access, but nordvpns page.
I think there's an issue with your DNS config. Check if your AppleTV/router is configured with DNS servers from Nord and if there aren't any apps messing with that in your TV, because it works fine with my AppleTV. Maybe you'll find what you need here.
If I have some issues connecting I usually go to support, and they always advise me what servers to use. Try writing them via live chat, this way they answer in a minute or two, or read the info yourself here
That's odd, I don't have any issues with Nord and my Xbox. At first, try using their obfuscated servers, the connection should be better this way. Or just set up Nord on your home router. Found this , hope you'll manage to fix this.
If already tried everything - you can contact their customer support, I'm sure they'll think of something else.
Not all servers of Nord work with Netflix, but they have a list showing which ones do. They update it constantly because Netflix loves to ban it. Her you go:
Are you connected to a server that supports netflix?
It also seems like it loads some stuff from cache. You should be able to find the movie/series
If you search for the specific movie/series (if it is available in that country)
Just set up Nord on your router, here is how you can do it and everything will be fine. I think if you have more questions you should just contact the customer support, they will know better than us. Good luck !
Using a VPN is the solution, as others have said.
Sure if you want the content of netflix, that's fine, subscribe to that service.
But netflix does not have everything i want to watch. i use as a service and it's never given me issues.
plus it is cheaper than the 7 € a month, or 600 € charge.
IANAL, but you should be fine (legally), I think, as long as you weren't involved with any of that and didn't view cp intentionally
What did the addresses of those sites end with ( like .onion), and which browser did you use to access them?
To be safe, it's good that you're using a throwaway, and you should continue to use a VPN whenever you post about this. I think nordvpn is fine security-wise.
You should run a virus scan now, if you haven't already.
You should be fine, but it's always good to be a little paranoid.
And lastly, in the future, make sure you do this
Yes, it does reroute to US Netflix. Most VPNs can only bypass a few countries Netflix. You can see which countries does NordVPN unblock here - . Personally, afaik, US Netflix has the most content so I'm good with that.
I meant This list, but again I got better servers from contacting support - which keeps them used less I suppose.
So I bit the bullet and went for it. Here are some speed results comparing my service with one other VPN I have.
Im using Comcast and VPN results vary depending on server.
Comcast - Download 30mbps Upload 6mbps
Windscribe - Download 17-25 mbps Uploads 5.5mbps
Im in New Jersey so Windscribe VPN servers seem to be closer to me then any server. Speeds vary but the above is just a example of the slowest and best speeds I got with both VPNs doing multiple test.
Final thought? Go for it! Its simple to setup, has a browser plugin also that blocks ads. Just keep in mind it's not really a lifetime since after 10 years you have to contact them to renew which I'm willing to bet they want you to forget and won't be sending you any reminders. Even if you do forget $40 for 10 years is one hell of a deal.
You can setup your NordVPN on the router () but then every device connected to the Internet will be on the VPN.
The TAP driver issues is not a crucial one, just go to VPN's support. You can then set up a hotspot. Or you can use your phone to create a hotspot and then connect your Vita
you can change your DNS on nordvpn, this article practically answers everything, just scroll to the end of it
What I did I just connected my VPN on a router. It's not possible to run it straight on PS4. But setting it up on a router is pretty legit. It's not hard to do so. I'm using NordVPN and I found in their page how to do so () maybe this will help to set up your VPN, or you can just try NordVPN it's a pretty good VPN.
I use . It's like $3/month if you pay for a year upfront and it's so fucking worth it.
Imagine that you pay $10/month for Spotify and $8/month for Netflix (don't actually know the real prices but they're close to that). Now, cancel both of those subscriptions and set up torrenting services (popcorntime is an easy netflix clone) through your vpn, and you get unlimited music and movies for $3 a month. How can you beat that?
But don't really do that. No one does that (including me), and it's wrong to do, and I never told you to do it.
> Dont use google vpns if you are trying to hide.
I think he meant to Google "VPNs" lol.
But to save a search I'd recommend .
Find a router that lets you connect to an OpenVPN server from the router and you can make sure all of your traffic stays encrypted instead of remembering to connect each time.
I would stay away from:
NordVPN -- Marketed a LOT... Honestly just fishy, I felt this way about PureVPN before they provided logs to the FBI
PureVPN -- Collaborated with the FBI to catch a stalker 
BlackVPN -- Caught lying about logging 
-- Stores passwords in plaintext 
-- Stores passwords in plaintext 
BTguard -- Stores passwords in plaintext 
HideMyAss! -- Caught logging after providing logs to FBI 
EarthVPN -- Caught logging after bombthreat from a user 
PIA -- Probably under a NSL. Every criminal that is somewhat smart but isn't very smart uses them. They demonstrated no logs in court. The US government isn't stupid and knows this may attract some bad actors. Just saying.
The only ones I trust is Mullvad, , and obviously the one I run. Out of the three though, I would trust Mullvad the most.
I use a plex server now when Netflix banned VPN access. More out of principle then anything else.
I do use NordVPN and they have a forum on specifically how to access Netflix subscriptions from other countries. NordVPN isn’t the best with speeds but is consistent with access and easy to use.
It’s a bit of a gamble unless another user can offer some updated advice but it’s the best I can offer.
Link to the NordVPN forum on servers to join for different content.
Yes, that is possible and that is the best solution when it comes to to a console. You'd need to setup the VPN on your router and that is pretty easy, just check whether your router supports OpenVPN. I personally use NordVPN, but I think most of the VPNs have similar guides -
If you look at their website you can see that they redirect most server locations to US Netflix.
If you want to watch Netflix outside of US, UK, CAN, JP or NL you’re out of luck.
free = risk for selling your data and keeping logs so thaat you can be tracked. does not keep logs or any data about you and is cheap 40 bucks a year and a free one month money back guarenty if it not suits your need,
This, that's all, all your computer activity will be secured.
it probably doesn't work, because the connection gets unstable when you are rerouting so much. set nordvpn on your router and then everything should go smoothly. they even have the instructions on their page
clear cookies/cache, connect to the newest servers available on nordvpn (they have the highest number and you have to choose them manually), also check this post by their customer support.
Try using their obfuscated servers, for me, it's a life saver.. works nicely when I want to unblock some bigger restrictions or smth. Or maybe this will help. Good luck
>but that as of right now Butter would just be PT 0.3.8 without integration and without copyrighted content.
As of right now that's literally all it is if you DL the source and compile it. There's like 10 movies that are unable to be watched on it. No TV section, no anime section, etc.
They state on the FAQ that
> Our entire website is SSL-secured. When connected to our VPN service, we encrypt your Internet data using highly secure encryption protocols... which means your data is undecipherable to prying eyes while in transit. We do not log our customers’ activities while connected to .
Our business is keeping you safe!
Of course, you're taking their word for that.
The only thing I can think of is maybe using a VPN:
Nord is just an example. There may be better options provided the servers dont have them IP banned from cheaters.
Try reading this , it helped me to set up Nord on my home wi-fi router and it works fine so far. Or just google it, there are more ways of how to connect vpn on ps4, but for me, router seemed the easier actually.
check this out:
Here's an excerpt:
>If you are still experiencing issues, try following these additional steps:
>1. Clear the cache of your browser. You can do that by following this article: ,2817,2480401,.
2. Restart the NordVPN app.
3. Set up NordVPN DNS addresses 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 on your device.
4. Restart your device.
I don't use uTorrent, I prefer qbitorrent, but in my settings there is an option to only allow network access over the 'tun0' network interface, which is what is used when you are connected to a VPN.
I'm guessing there will be something similar in uTorrent..
Look at This.
You need to connect to p2p servers with nord and everything will be good, I had the same problem but customer support helped me. Here is a usefull guide and p2p servers
Honest may be. Incompetent surely.
I still can't believe they recommended
That is the crappiest VPN ever. Their website is crooked - opens from bottom. They make false promises about they having server in India - they don't.
More than any other issue - when you register they send your password in clear text in URL. So now anyone watching over any network through which it reaches their server now has your password.
I only had it for about a month so it's to early to tell but so far nothing from Comcast. Although all my warnings have been from downloading torrents using KickAssTorrent. I never got a warning when using popcorn. When I first purchased I did notice that sometimes it wouldnt log on using the built in VPN on Popcorn. Instead I just used OpenVPN GUI to log in. So I have it setup on my home theatre PC to log on automatically when Windows starts.
You can use the app on your phone as a remote but I just read that you've done that. As for NordVPN and Netflix, try another server because not all of them work. And you can try this, maybe it will help .
I've installed Openswan on ubuntu... I am fine with the installation - I am more worried about the network setup... (NAT etc) for other servers than the connecting one. Or maybe I should use the AWS hardware VPN service?
Here you go
Yes your subnet will need to be different in your cloud network than your local network its connecting to
does not have a kill switch which is probably your issue since that feature is what stops leaks from happening.
Both Nord and express have that feature so they're decent choices.
Best way to figure out what the best VPN for you would be is to use That privacy guy's VPN chart here.
But as a general rule do not use VPN services that you see recommended by websites or other services because those VPNs definitely paid to be put forward. Don't trust any "top 10 best vpns" lists either because again the lists are not objective most of the time and the number 1 almost always paid to be there.
According to this link, Netflix Japan is not supported. But you can email their support for help. They usually reply fast and are very helpful.
Thanks for your reply.
I'm aware of things you have pointed out, I guess I should have mentioned before that the reason I'm asking this is because I want to use Safari.
Unfortunately Safari is one class better browser than Firefox (that said, I have used Firefox for the last 10 years or so), and I don't want to give that up for few extensions. I use Tor as well, but for day to day tasks, Safari is just unbeatable.
This is why I'm asking for recommendations to replace the well known ones such as HTTPS Everywhere or Privacy Badger. Thanks for letting me know about the Ghostery, I wasn't aware of that one.
I'm hoping they will EFF will make those extensions available for Safari one day though.
PS. VPN I'm using is - really, really good. Highly recommended.
It's difficult to deduce what you're trying to do with this kind of setup but my guess is some agent/agentless base communications where you're agent's hub is located within your VPC and you need to send policy/commands via egress TCP traffic. if this is the case and you wont have permissions to manipulate other outside AWS accounts then your best bet is a VPN Solution in my experience. Have your edge and their edges take care of NAT and routing and establish mutiple hub/spokes over secure tunnels. 20 connections is a soft limit with 255 being the hard limit after asking AWS support.
When deploying the hardware VPN, there are typically two IPsec tunnels that are deployed . The tunnel endpoints are located on different Availability Zones (AZ's) in the region. Are both tunnels going offline?
Are you opening PT from behind the VPN?
might work differently - but normally PT has to be opened first before applying the VPN.(For Apple TV to show up in the "watch now" options list)
Edit: just a thought - why aren't you using the original version with the patch?
These are the servers you should take to watch netflix trough vpn
I'm always using Server 68 in the Netherlands, still working
Just FYI, if a connection ever blocks certain sites (e.g. a school network blocking Facebook), you can get around it by using a VPN. There are plenty of free VPN programs and apps if you search for them, but I'm personally a fan of for ease of use and server locations.
do not keep logs , we rent servers as most of VPN servers ,
Let me tell you something else , you are talking about subpoena and so far i didnt see one for copyright infringement only for serious cyber crime , Warrany canary
I use OpenVPN GUI as a front end to . If you're running Windows look at the "Support" tab of which will show you how to download and set up OpnVPN GUI.
The "Software" tab in allows you to create n+ configurations and levels of encryption files that you then move into the "config" folder of OpenVPN GUI. Hence when you bring up OpenVPN you can choose whichever configuration file better suits you.
I also run combo on my Android tablet. I created the configuration files under Windows and "moved" moved them over to my Samsung tablet. I travel a lot from the US to Europe,so I've created several configuration files for GB, Germany, France, etc. I also have files for the US so that when I access my bank and financial accounts from Europe I don't get blocked if it were to see me as a "European Hacker".
You can only set up your PS4 with a VPN by configuring your router. Most VPNs have tutorials on how to do that so you can find it on their page. if not, you can read NordVPN's router tutorial or PIA's, pretty comprehensive ()
Yes, it's possible. Depends what kind of TV do you mean, if an Android TV, then NordVPN has an app for that afaik, if not, your best best is setting it up on the router ()
NordVPN works with Netflix US, UK, JP, NL and Greece. Here's a list of the specialized Netflix servers:
Is this a naked EC2 instance, in which case if it's linux then you can probably run a client.
More hopefully if the instance is in a VPC then you can connect the VPC up to any IPSec VPN.
Take a look at this support thread:
It outlines specialized Netflix servers which have a far higher chance of working.
To my knowledge it still hasn't been confirmed that a plugin system would be implemented in Butter at any point. Their current stance (from what I read on their subreddit) is that they "may or may not keep working on a plugin system for 0.4.0" but that as of right now Butter would just be PT 0.3.8 without integration and without copyrighted content.
No matter what I try, fails to resolve. It looks like it's been through the same fate as
However, I think it may work for you since you may be using
If so, then I was unaware of working from behind
I think the best way around the issue is to have a drop down menu, when you go to set up the app, with a list of VPNs the user can choose from instead of offering only one choice. This way, you avoid the problem all together. Does anyone know if Wally (at ) was able to get the service back online?
Yeah man, Nord works for me quite well. On what device are you watching though? I'm using a laptop with a tv monitor connected to it. Check here for a bit more info
You need a VPN (Direct Connect is very costly just for testing)
Probably need to involve your firewall/infrastructure/network team/person.
After that the AD Connector is the easiest route:
No, it's because right now is down. You can use the program for your own torrents but the old functionality (browsing movies and tv shows, tracking views) doesn't work. is fine, I've been using it for a few months, the only hiccup has been that the servers went down for about 48 hours last week, which they've already fixed and emailed customers regarding.
Well I can't guarantee you that I'll be able to assist you but here's a tutorial that you can follow:
All you need to do is reset/clear your old IPtable rules and replace them with the new updated IP rules.
This is of course assuming that your VPS is only used for OpenVPN and contains OpenVPN iptable rules.
the Built-IN VPN is the same as OPenvpn Client , If you are connected via Popcorn Time you all computer is routed trough openvpn tunnel , you can check that anytime by visting
or you can setup openvpn on your system ,
I can also use the proxy for your Bitorrent client ( for example port 1337 ) HTTP proxy , Login and pass
I have tested at least 5 different servers listed here. They all did the job just fine
If you want to torrent, choose a P2P server. Doublevpn will decrease your speed (since it routes your traffic through two servers in different countries). If you want to steam, then look at this resource
If there are seriously no other options then I guess you're good to go. You might also want to ask about killswitches from their support or if /u/luretrix2k (IIRC you're using ? If not, just ignore this) has some info as a and PT user, that would also be helpful.
no, I don't think so, I know that nordvpn app allows only to add programs, which you want to be killed if the connection drops. maybe check their support blog?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that Pi-Hole has its custom DNS servers so if you are connecting to Nord with custom DNS servers you lose all the encryption which Nord provides ergo your VPN becomes worthless in that regard. One solution is to connect your device to pi-hole and run pi-hole on your router with VPN. In that scenario it would be like a double DNS connection, because it would go like: device -> pi-hole server with custom DNS -> Nord server with encrypted DNS -> where you want to go. Be sure to check if your router supports that (there's a tutorial how to setup Nord on your router here.
I use NordVPN and is quite happy with that... they often have a 75% off if you buy a couple of years if I remember correctly.
And yes, you can set your router up to route all your traffic through your VPN - for NordVPN a guide can be found here
If you only have the option of buying it on PC I'd go for BF3, Infinity Ward give no love to PC users and MW3 on PC is quite frustrating.
If you must get MW3 on pc though, why don't you get a CD key of it from one of the many online retailers?
You can get the english version for around €30.
Or if you don't mind activating it with a VPN and changing the language manually you can pick up a Russian MW3 key for around €14.
Oh man, it was going for $7.50 on Green Man Gaming just yesterday. You can get it for about $20 here.
So I'm still using an old install with the fix. Last month though my movies wouldn't show up so I used the "popcorntime fix" from the sticky (the one with the net 4.5 fix) to get my movies to show back up. Did I install something fucky on my PC when I did that? I use malwarebytes and bit defender with real time scanning on both and I've yet to see any warnings.
Not sure but I recall PIA having bandwidth limits otherwise it is over priced from other services.
is 1.99 first month (or 99cents) and it is supported by PT and is backed by their team for support,etc. Lots of servers to choose from and unlimited bandwidth.
> ask is under a standard install of nordvpn ..... is he safe .. to use popcorntime?
Yes! That's what a VPN is made for (to anonymize your downloads). With the proviso (you already mentioned) for a kill switch - just in case the VPN drops you .... especially in Germany!
I've been traveling for work quite a bit lately and wanted to be able to view my bank account and whatnot a bit more securely. I had a desktop computer at home that is just running as a media server with windows vista on it.
I configured it to accept incoming VPN connections, and configured the VPN settings on my iPad and iPhone to hit my home network.
Please check out this documentation it is supported by all Android versions and I use this with to great effect. See if this helps.
EDIT: Here is another natively supported solution. You may need to reason out how to do this in Android TV but I am reasonably certain that these settings would exist.
Copied from a previous thread on the issue
Currently only US, Canadian, French and Dutch netflix are available via Nord VPN. Other users have posted that they are working on bringing other regions online, but without a clear timescale.
If you are connected to a server located outside of the above 4, appears to default to the US version.
For starters, read this article, Android section. I suggest to bookmark it and check it whenever you are facing Netflix related issues on Android. If recommended servers do not work - chatting with the support should be your next step.
has mixed reviews, although it has the benefit of still supporting the .io flavor of popcorntime. PIA works good for me and the Christmas savings are awesome xD. Any VPN which doesn't keep logs and doesn't throttle p2p should work.
Well you could say, if you download the original PT binary and connect to , PT automatically downloads a hotfix which will allow you watch movies and TV shows again, works much better than the CE edition of PT as movie descriptions, trailers, imdb links, sorting options, everything still works perfectly, as if the .io version didn't go out at all. It uses for new releases of movies and YIFY releases for all the old releases so it's all safe (even the android app works once your connected to , without a hotfix).
But of course you can still use the CE edition with PIA and you will be just fine and in the future once the new website is setup again, progress will be made fixing all these issues but in the mean.
I can be a little tricky if you don't have strong networking skills as you said, But AWS has some good documentation about this. The big thing is you need to have a compatible firewall that will allow your VPC to communicate with your private network. Take a look at this:
That being said, I don't know what your use cases for AWS are. You can achieve a great deal of security without a VPN tunnel, things like locking down port 22 to nothing but your public IP for example or a SSH jumpbox.
Refer to this source for VPN setup.
I would suggest you involve your infra team if possible, just don't want you to open the access gate to everyone.
I was looking for the best VPN I could and that's how I found , and luckily I didn't purchase a year of PIA which is what I was about to do before I found
I totally agree PIA is not secure, being within countries of the 5 eyes is enough for it to be discredited. Although a friend of mine uses PIA and the GUI for their desktop app is neato.
Yup, everything works like it should. You can always check here for updated server list: -Info/1047407532/How-to-securely-watch-Netflix-with\
I sometimes check which servers work, because Netflix likes to block them.
VPN is a network that is constructed by using public wires — usually the Internet — to connect to a private network, such as a company's internal network. There are a number of systems that enable you to create networks using the Internet as the medium for transporting data.
Sounds like you are very new . I would suggest that you take a look at the website and go through their AWS S.A. Associate course to get familiar with AWS.
Setting up a VPN requires administrative access to your on premises vpn endpoint be it a firewall or concentrator. After that you can review this link to figure out the proper way to build out the vpn.
Just a clarification, are you using the setup shown in Using Redundant VPN Connections to Provide Failover? Just one Virtual Private Gateway and 2 Customer Gateways?
It will work for ALL your programs,the only way to bypass this is to ONLY activate it when you use popcorntime.
If you have an account at you can just press the padlock(Green when you are connected) in popcorntime when your gonna use it and it will hide/mask your traffic.
When you are finished watching press the padlock(Red when it's diabeled) again and it will disabel your VPN connection.
Not advertising but has a working flavour client working, they have only released it for their VPN service subscribers.
Or ditch the torrent streaming and use kodi for Android + Genesis. Also moviebox.
You can also use the sooo... Yeah...
Can't think of any other.... ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Same here...I have gotten even higher speeds sometimes using then my actually ISP. This was my first vpn purchase and from what others say it isn't the best but honestly I had no problems with them except that one time when popcorn got shut down, they also did and didn't say anything to their clients after about a week. That wasn't cool.
