Setting boxes up with no VPN instructions would be considered bad practice right now. Since the EPL won the high Court order, ALL Iptv is suffering, not just Ace. You need to instruct every client on how to get a VPN set up, or you will have support tickets dropping every weekend.
There's a few options, but the easiest is VPN service that offers an android app, and starting this before launching Kodi. You can get more complex with a VPN router (or easy: buy pre-setup router on ebay), or routing your Smart TV through your VPN on your PC.
If you don't understand the tech and current situation in this space, rethink your business op.
EDIT: My streams are working fine 99% of the time (there is no 100% iptv service) with IBVPN installed on a Kodi box, and I still use my Smart IPTV app without vpn thru tv on non-matchdays.
EDIT 2: I watched the PPV with a minor issue once the fight started. Swapped streams... all good.
Exactly, the second I saw the "Hide My Ass" link I faceplamed. SERIOUSLY blog dude?
No, no, no. They turned over logs without a second thought, regardless of them being outside of the US. IBVPN / ipredator / / are swedish and for all I know, secure. The point is, do your research first.
I copied their spreadsheet and tried to make it easier to use by adding columns KLMN:
Column K: Are the first 3 columns green? 0/1 = no/yes
Pretty much non-US, doesn't keep traffic logs long term, doesn't share with NSA(?)
Column L: Speed if K was yes, 0 means n/a
Column M: Monthly price if K was yes, bought annually.
Column N: Free trial if K was yes?
Free free to make a copy and mess around with it. So if it has numbers, look for one that has a trial and a price and speed you like.
EDIT: Made a 2nd sheet with the only 5 that have free trials, no's in the first three columns, and has a speed listed.
Name - Speed - Cost/mo:
CactusVPN - 95.23 - $4.59
FinchVPN - 22.89 - $3.22
IBVPN - 57.89 - $4.08
NordVPN - 5.36 - $5.75
SaferVPN 93.45 $5.99
I MN 2 servers for lab work, one is running WinServer2012 with OS SSD + 8TB storage, the other server is running VMs, one being Win7Pro. All traffic on that VM routed through IBVPN - downloads the torrents to the shared drive on the WinServer. My PlexMediaServer then reads all that and all is good. Only thing I have to do is start a couple of torrents and leave it! :D
Check what actual VPN technology IBVPN is using. There are three common ones, IPSEC, OpenVPN and PPTP. Good VPN providers usually support both IPSEC and OpenVPN so if your router supports one then you are set. If your provider only supports PPTP get a different one, it is not secure.
Powerline is not 500 Mbps, it only claims to be. Most "500 Mbps" powerline adapters only have 100 Mbit Ethernet ports on them because they know they can't actually get even close to the claimed speeds. In most cases the speed will be well under even 100 Mbps.
Hardwiring is good, but powerline is NOT hardwiring in the slightest. It is far more like WiFi in how it actually operates, only electrical cables have far less usable bandwidth then the wireless bands through air.
Can anyone recommend a noob-friendly VPN with good speeds in the Los Angeles area? Also looking for a service that works well on Mac, iPhone and Android.
Was considering AirVPN, NordVPN, IVPN, PIA, ExpressVPN and IBVPN so far. Any experiences with them or other VPNs in SoCal?
Honestly dont bother.
Go online, sign up for IBVPN and just turn it on to hide your downloading and turn it off when you are just surfing the web.
the internet slows down a bit, but its not worth getting ISP letters.
just fyi, i just switched to IBVPN for torrenting and the speeds are crazy slow, so just expect to download stuff "overnight" for a few nights.
but you can turn it off during the day while browsing.
I'm currently subbed to IBVPN and I availed their 50% promo right now
If you're just solo and don't need proxy service (just VPN and DNS changer) I suggest getting the total VPN package for 35$ for a 1 year subscription.
But if you want to a second person to use the VPN simultaneously, you can get the ultimate package for 42$ yearly.
It is therefore more important than ever that torrent users protect their identity and remain anonymous when file sharing. This is the primary reasons that many turn to a VPN service. Take look at the best VPN providers for torrents which are;
ExpressVPN that has no connection logs, with great speeds, with 30 day money-back guarantee and multiple VPN protocols.
NordVPN - No logs, accepts Bitcoins , 256-bit AES with ‘double encrytpion’, Tor over VPN , 2 simultaneous connections, P2P: yes
BTGuard - No logs; Canada has no data retention laws; cheap proxy service, preconfigured Bit Torrent client, 256-bit encryption
TorGuard - It has no logs, based in Panama, BitTorrent friendly, cheap proxy service, preconfigured BitTorrent client, 256-bit encryption, very fast, UK servers, has P2P, accepts Bitcoins, 30 day money back guarantee
IBVPN -ery cheap, no logs (but many caveats), Torrent VPN plan, accepts BitCoins, has P2P, 6 hour free trial, 15 day money back guarantee
All of the most popular VPN's (the top 15 or so) have their own software which makes using a VPN as easy as installing the software, selecting a server from a dropdown list, and clicking connect (you have to enter your username/password too.
As long as you are using personal computer (mac or pc) and not a mobile device, setup is that easy. It's literally a 3 minute process. A number of these VPN's also build advanced funcitonality into their software like split routing, speed testing, DNS leak protection, Kill-switches and more.
To find the best VPN for your needs, you can try (it's my buddy's website). It has VPN reviews, and it tells you what each VPN is best for. My personal favorites are private internet access and IBVPN (both super affordable). Also purevpn is awesome, but more expensive (around $15 a month). Purevpn is the fastest vpn i've ever used.
Obviously a paid list. You're astute! ;))
Nothin is totally free any more, nothing.
But these are pretty damn close, right? I mean, not much use complaining.
Anyway, I highly recommend oh hundreds(?!) of actual pay for VPN companies simply due to the fact that the cost is very very low and you can get such great service (Case in point, I have used IBVPN for 5 years now and they are great). Although there are other VPN providers of forget all about It once set up. Instead of what some do, repeatedly messing with free trials...
You might be forced to do this with a laptop equipped with privoxy. I doubt if they have code for phones.
Try the softether protocol. IBVPN is one of the few supporting it but there are others. Shadowsocks is also worth a try.
What you describe is very creepy. Very mainland Chinese.
> "Some paid VPN not allow their service for torrents downloading such HMA and IBVPN so read reviews before purchasing any VPN."
> "Not working for me."
Not allowing and not working for you are 2 different things.
I used PIA and dropped them in a week. Did not like the service. Too slow.
I ended up going with IBVPN which provides the fast DNS I need to watch iPlayer in HD. It's $50 for vpn and DNS so its worth it for me. PIA is like $35.
It doesn't matter if 0.001 kb or 1 MB, a lot of you people seem to not know how you get busted for torrenting.
So here it is: You go to some website, look for a certain torrent, you download it, you upload. Well unless you just downloaded a file by someone [Law firm for big company] who wants to bust your ass, you're good to go. Your ISP gives a shit about it as long as they don't get harrassed about it, but if someone calls them or writes them a letter with a list of a few thousand IPs the ISP will then take those informations and hand it over to you, with a hefty fine or if it's your first time maybe just a warning. So remember, don't download files not by VIP members or files not verified already. And if you want to be save, use IBVPN or PIA or whatever Proxy/VPN you wanna use.
