VPNs can't be expected to log user data. They're used by political dissidents in authoritarian countries. Would America expose Chinese human rights activists to the risk of imprisonment, just because Lionsgate wants to track bittorrent movie sharers?
The most likely effect of this lawsuit is that VPN companies stop promoting VPN as a way to pirate movies. Promotions like this will disappear ...

I already did, but I thought I'd ask here, because of the fact that I live in Sweden and it might have something to do with that.
They already recommended services like PrivateVPN to me, but as said, it didn't work.
I'm pretty sure there's a lack of knowledge about cybersecurity and data leaks, data selling and etc. I agree that using a quality VPN (like NordVPN, ExpressVPN, PrivateVPN or similar) would solve quite a lot of problems. And yes, I agree that most people don't even understand how they're selling out their data
To clarify - You want a VPN that keeps no logs, not necessarily a US one. A good VPN will guarantee no logs but in order to d/l with safety you'll need to be using an address from a non-US range, e.g. Sweden is a good example with the VPN I use. PrivateVPN has ip's from all over the world. Their Swedish IPs guarantee no logs so I use this one for downloading. If I want to watch Netflix or Hulu then I use their US range of addresses which, by law, they are required to maintain logs. They tell you this when you sign up and make sure you know not to us US IPs for downloading.
To the OP - to answer your question - your ISP can't do shit to you. Toss the letter in the garbage and get a VPN.
Like it was said - proxy only changes your IP, it does NOT encrypt your traffic unlike a VPN. Also, if you're using a torrent client and have a proxy/vpn extension on your browser - it will not help, it has to cover your system, an extension only covers your browser.
Get a trusted VPN that allows torrenting like NordVPN, PrivateVPN, Express or similar, you can check that one privacy guy or Torrentfreak's anonymous VPN list
I think Mullvad and Windscribe are recommended VPNs for torrenting. Torrentleech also often has promos for PrivateVPN, so I assume they're good as well.
Also most people usually torrent only on one device, so if you have other devices you can use to stream it shouldn't be an issue. Even if you use the same device you're torrenting on to stream, enabling split tunneling will make sure only your torrent traffic goes through the VPN while your streaming speed remains unaffected
It's true in the US even. I recently made a trip to China so I figured what the hell try a couple VPNs. PrivateVPN worked, sort of, but was slow. ExpressVPN was fast so I figured I'd try it at home why not. Connects right to the backbone and somehow I'm getting faster speeds. My brother tried it at his place and had more of a notable gain. From 54/3.2 to 74/10.2. I'm blaming net neutrality bullshit.
Try out PrivateVPN. Here is their list of available servers that work with Netflix: I am using this with a bunch a friends for over a year now. Works great!
Edit: They have an app for Windows, macOS, iOS, Android and the Fire TV
If you don't want a lawsuit - get a paid VPN, better be safe than sorry tbh, especially when downloading torrents as such. Torrentfreak has a nice article about good VPN services that you can read about. I personally use NordVPN, but Express, VPNArea, PrivateVPN are good too for that kind of thing. You can also use it not only for torrenting but privacy in general, a VPN is quite handy
"Shielding your I.P. address is possible by connecting to what is called a virtual private network, or V.P.N., such as those offered by WiTopia, PrivateVPN and StrongVPN."
All those 3 VPN providers log data. Be careful.
SurfShark is a great option. One thing torrenters want to consider is optimization of bandwidth for P2P traffic. Some VPNs will actually hardcore limit P2P traffic, making torrenting much slower than it should be.
I use PrivateVPN which optimizes, but SurfShark does too. Both providers provide servers that can access Netflix I believe.
Yep, I see your problem. You tried two VPNs that don't work at all. A few do work to bypass Netflix. Windscribe, NordVPN, ExpressVPN, PrivateVPN, Surfshark. Psiphon doesn't have the resources needed to effectively bypass the constant blocking Netflix uses, and Avast doesn't make Netflix bypassing a part of their VPN service.
What you can try is use a VPN (NordVPN, PrivateVPN,pretty much any that has servers in the US will do), connect to the States and check whether there is a burner card or gift card that you can use on Sony's website. have you checked other possible sources, not only Sony's website?
I wouldn't suggest using a free VPN, maybe I'm too paranoid, but I don't understand how this kind of business model can work. From where do they get the income? Anyway, there's a bunch of quality products that don't cost that much, like NordVPN (that's what I use), Safer or PrivateVPN, just pick the one that seems best for you.
Here are the top eight VPNs that unblocked Netflix in the most countries:
Air VPN: 15 (desktop browser only)
Mullvad: 13 (desktop browser only)
I use PrivateVPN for US Netflix and it works most of the time. I go back and forth between using the VPN and WireGuard with a configuration they send me a while back, using when one doesn’t work the other does.
I'm going to guess one or many of these things don't work or just so happened to not work at a bad time. I don't know anything about PrivateVPN but do some searches on what's recommended around here and maybe try one of those instead.
I think my friend and I found a work around to make the first half of the room code match up. We used the same VPN and logged in using the same location. For example, we're both using PrivateVPN and logging into Chicago as the location. Doing this made the left half of the code match up on the secret sky stream and allowed us to use the private room code to meet up. It's a frustrating work around, but it worked.
I recently purchased a vpn on a 7 day free trial for accessing Netflix in other regions and it’s has worked perfectly. It’s called PrivateVPN. I have also got a year subscription from them. It’s great for Netflix.
Free VPNs can be much costlier than you think, as they leak your traffic, share your data around the web, etc. Paid brands are far more reliable.
I personally use TorGuard and PrivateVPN. You can see a comparison of some of the best options if you Google "VPN tier list," because you will see a couple of sites that actually rank VPNs according to their reputation, price, apps, supports, and other traits. Here is an example. Good luck!
I use PrivateVPN. $72 for 3 years. It's one of the more budget paid service but can confirm it works well for bbc iPlayer and their support service helped me make sure it did or would refund me.
Not sure if that deal is still available or not, but either way you're looking at a similar investment.
Don't think any free services unlock it, but it they do you might be limited to like 2gb a month.
Here's what I usually do when I get a new computer
DBAN (Optional, erases literally everything from computer)
Install Windows 10 Lite (Only use if you don't need a few things such as microsoft store)
Tor Browser (or Firefox)
DuckDuckGo Search Engine and privacy extension
That's all, you can do TailsOS or anything like linux instead of windows if you don't mind.
I'm also using PrivateVPN. Subsciption ends in half a year for me, started reading up on VPN reviews, and apparently NordVPN is highly rated everywhere it seems. I live in Sweden and here PrivateVPN has 3 servers, Kista, Stockholm and Göteborg. I live slightly closer to the Göteborg server than the Kista and Stockholm servers. The Kista server is great, it's the one you want to use for torrenting in Sweden since all ports are forwarded. My connection is 100/10, (which is exactly the speed I'm getting without VPN) and using that server I get 90-95/9-9.5. To the other servers I get significantly worse speeds fluctuating between 50-80/7-8 and from what I understand the Göteborg one is virtual? Does anyone know what the speeds are like with NordVPN in Sweden? Anyone else using PrivateVPN in Sweden? What are other VPNs like in Sweden?
I'm using PrivateVPN, it's less than $5 per month when you get 3 months or more. They have dedicated servers for Netflix in different countries, been using it for a few years and ever since they have the special Netflix servers it never failed me.
If you use PrivateVPN netflix has pretty much every movie because nearly every country is unblocked
im pretty sure most other VPNs only unblock 4 or 5 countries
anyway Germany, Brazil, UK, and Argentina has the best content
Hi, I recently switched to PrivateVPN and that’s seen the number of links go through the roof. I tend to have it set to UK, but quite often it’s on US as it also works with Netflix and such, which seems to be a rarity these days (they actually have specific servers for Netflix all over the place)
You can use a VPN that has servers in the US. That will change your IP address to an American one and it will seem as if you're from the US - this is a list of really good private and anonymous VPNs here I personally suggest NordVPN because they have the most servers in the US, you can also try ExpressVPN or PrivateVPN too
Since you are in a different location and your IP address is now based in Germany, Netflix has adjusted your library to the German one . Unblocking Netflix is as simple as changing your IP address — by doing that, you can access any localization you’re aiming for, including the US one. So if you obtain an IP address in the USA, you can watch all the American exclusives no matter where you are!
Here’s a roundup of top VPN picks for unblocking regional Netflix versions around the world:
Get a VPN and watch it on Netflix, Amazon Prime or whatever, this show is popular everywhere. Try one of these: NordVPN, ExpressVPN, PrivateVPN. They are those who are good with streaming, especially Netflix. Not many VPNs work well with Netflix so better do your research.
I used to use PIA, but unfortunately it doesn't work with Netflix.
Now, I can vouch for PrivateVPN.
My only experience has been with PrivateVPN, been subscribed for over a year, Hulu and Disney work perfectly. Netflix used to too but with the recent ban it’s been spotty, but it’s the same for every VPN right now. They seem to be fixing things lately, or at least trying to, I mainly use US servers and it’s working working almost all the time now.
No, I'm referring to PrivateVPN:
Anyway, I appreciate the mini review of PIA - in the interim I just signed up with PIA and with a bit of tweaking seem to have the port forwarding working - in qBittorrent I get a green plug icon.
From what I've read, the PIA forwarded ports can last a few months at a time, which is okay for me.
I’m from Uruguay and I’ve been using PrivateVPN for almost a year to watch Netflix US and other streaming services and it works great.
They offer 2 year service for 60USD so it’s not that expensive either.
These are some things I'm either paying for or would like to pay $1-10 per month or yearly equivalent. Some of these I bought at fixed one-time-purchase, but they might be monthly subscription today and I would still buy them.
I started with express but they don’t have open inbound ports (or I couldn’t figure out how to configure it that way).
I’m with PrivateVPN now, they have open ports (important for remote access and BitTorrent), I’ve not paid much attention to the price recently as I pay yearly.
Speed has been good on down and upload, it’s been great to finally build some ratio now I figured the lack of open ports was the issue!
I use PrivateVPN and it usually works for me. It's pretty cheap relatively speaking, at the time they had a deal where I paid $70 for three years.
I know you probably don't want to hear that it costs money but I think it's worth the investment as the baseball nerd I am.
Yeah even thought im perfectly fine with other games, MHW capcom servers are just a special case, so i tried using a vpn and im on a 7day free trial from PrivateVPN, and so far iv been able to actually play with my friends. So yeah i guess it was connect on my side rip
you are welcome! If you need a vpn on a a regular basis you should definitly consider buying one. The difference between free and paid offers is huge. For cheap paid VPNs you could check out PrivateVPN (~19 € per year), VPNunlimited (with voucher you can get a life time license for 20 € on sale) or surfshark (48 for 2 years I think).
The only trustworthy free solutions are Proton and Windscribe. Other's usually collect logs which can backfire once an institution asks for them, and is a major privacy risk, because all traffic passes the vpn provider, so he knows everything you do online as long as it's turned on.
Hi there, maybe you've already seen this list? _of_vpns_that_allow_p2p_and_port_forwarding/
I would maybe pick Astrill or maybe PrivateVPN. Just heard good stuff about them but never tried. Look into it.
Mullvad does not unblock streaming services like Netflix, if you care about it.
Last year I was using PrivateVPN and it worked fine most of the time but it did have some periods where it would lag a lot.
Two weeks ago I switched to NordVPN and it seems to work pretty well for now.
For your use case, I see nothing wrong with running your own, other than that the maintenance overhead can be annoying (ran my own for ages, stopped for exactly that reason).
I've currently got accounts on PIA (through work), PrivateVPN (through another project I work on), and Mullvad (personal). Of all of them, I prefer Mullvad. The other two are fine as well, I don't have any specific issues with them. I don't really trust PIA wholly myself, they seem to have too much going for me to be comfortable. PrivateVPN seems good enough, I just prefer the Mullvad feature set.
Edit: With regards to your last question about it being compromised, as long as you keep an eye on HTTPS validity and are careful not to click through warnings about dodgy certificates, yeah, your HTTPS traffic will still be protected, same as wifi. It may expose your location, though, through your connected IP address, but the same is true of any VPN provider arguably.
No kidding bro, PrivateVPN is shit. That said, one VPN that I've had really good luck with is PureVPN. Plans are reasonable and I've pretty much been able to do everything you'd typically expect from a VPN.
That said, i suggest reading a review about PureVPN before you go ahead and purchase it. Perhaps it might not work out for you.
Free VPNs per se are not a good idea, in general. They are slow and unreliable, and may be costlier than you might expect (privacy issues, hackers, malware, slow speeds...) I think you may be better off trying a paid one with a free trial or a money-back guarantee. TorGuard is a nice option, as it is one of the best overall VPNs. PrivateVPN is good and has a longer "try-out" period in the form of a money-back guarantee. Here are other options, ranked in tiers or groups.
I would recommend paying for one, as the free ones don't have the best practices regarding privacy, you know? If you absolutely can't pay, try to take advantage of free trials and money-back guarantees. For example, TorGuard and PrivateVPN are two excellent options with a money-back guarantee. In this page, you can sort through options and compare the attributes of each one.
well, if the laws are not strict and there is zero chance that your ISP cares what you do, then you can only let trackers installed in a torrent to track you. buuuut if you use a vpn, you become practically invisible. NordVPN/PrivateVPN/Surfeasy etc - all of them support torrenting, although for the different price.
I am also attempting to rewatch the entire MCU! (still have yet to see EG but I'm not really in a rush)
Was going great until Civil War, which is apparently now only available in South Korea (argh).. & of my two paid VPN subscriptions, for that location one is blocked (ExpressVPN, SK 1+2) & the other (PrivateVPN, SK) is sooo slow (SK has been all week, across multiple tests) that it's not worth watching, just way too blurry.. ended up up skipping ahead & watched Spider-Man Hc & Doctor Strange instead, via their other locations, lol.. (much prefer HD speeds at minimum). Came here to see if anyone has any (HD) South Korea alternatives, but I guess not.. ;(
I do recommend PrivateVPN in general tho, overall a great Windows app & ExVPN alternative!
Thanks. I already did a system wipe as soon as I got the computer yesterday, so that's already done. Two quick questions:
What exactly is Windows 10 Lite? How does it differ from Windows 10? I've stuck to using Windows 8 for the past several years and I've kind of grown attached to the system, and didn't really like Windows 10 when it was first released.
And why PrivateVPN over some other VPNs?
well different country and higher speed, we barely have 10 percent of ur internet speed here but still windscribe is weak compared to expressVPN, nordvpn, PrivateVPN, VYPRVPN and so many other services,
i just mentioned that as something to be fixed or report
Yes exactly the same here. The support are not helpful at all with this situation. Their reply is "We do not endorse activities that directly violate BBC policies".
The are aware of the issue and working on it, and provided me a list of servers to use but they doesn't work.
I moved to PrivateVPN and it works flawlessly with BBC iPlayer.
Hey, I have had a similar problem a while ago. I wanted to learn Portuguese but I couldn't find good stuff on Netflix UK. So I tried 7 different VPNs to find the best and the cheapest for geolocalisation.
The best is definitely PrivateVPN. It costs 15 dollars for 3 months, it's reliable, works with every Netflix country and it's easy to use.
Edit: someone else was saying that season 5 was available in Canada Netflix. Not sure about season 6 tho
Using PrivateVPN. They have a number of servers per location, this lets you use Netflix, Hulu, Dazn etc.
To sign up luckily I have a buddy in Canada who let me us his card to register.
I am in the really ridiculous situation where I could work for Dazn (they're located in London) but cannot use their platform.
Good to know. Never used the korean server before. I can‘t give you an alternative as I am only using PrivateVPN. But I remember many people using Express are asking their support for working servers. Maybe you can try that out?
None, it was for work. But the ones who log the least (of the ones I looked at) were Nord, PrivateVPN, Private Internet Access, Strong, and Ivacy. If I were to get one for personal use it would be Nord.
La cosa piu rapida è usare uno dei tanti sevizi gratuiti / a pagamento in giro.
Io ho installato PrivateVPN su tutti i PC di casa per lo stesso motivo.
Un giorno che ho voglia, configurerò un piVPN o mi prenderò un router che offra la possibilita di configurare una VPN.
PrivateVPN offers much the same but at a higher price and I can do 1 extra device simultaneously. The deal I signed with also came with a Netflix guarantee so of it ever gets blocked they'll provide a full refund
It's very easy tbh and I do this with a lot of other shows that are US only. I use NordVPN (but you can use any other VPN that has servers in the states - PrivateVPN, Express). Then connect to the US and that's it, you're in the US, you can watch the shows you want
I use PrivateVPN, I like it but it slows my internet down to about 2 - 5 Mbps so it isn’t good for gaming. when my subscription runs out on it I’m switching VPNs. Does Express slow down your internet a lot too?
Mullvad was way too expensive for me, and NordVPN capped my speed (uni network in Italy) way too much, I was getting 6 MB/s top instead of the 11 MB/s maximum. After some digging I decided to split a PrivateVPN deal with my friend, I get maximum speed with that and it was pretty cheap for my pockets.
Hmm, never use it before but seems like PrivateVPN wants to track you. Cant visit their website with VPN on.
The owner of this website () has banned the autonomous system number (ASN) your IP address is in (59253) from accessing this website.
My IP is not blacklisted in anywhere either. They banned non-residential IPs. Tried with 3 different VPNs, still got blocked!
Not surprising, Netflix blocks VPNs constantly and does quite a good job on it. I'm using NordVPN, but heard that PrivateVPN also works pretty decently, so you can look into those, or just read more articles like this one.
Of course, you just need a reliable vpn. Nordvpn works pretty nice with BBC for me, try connecting to the newest servers and look for the smallest user load for even better speeds. Express or PrivateVPN should be okay also.
First of all... Hola? Really? Haven't you read hundreds of articles both here and elsewhere online about how you should never use it? This it woks great for me in regards to speed and unblocking stuff. I've also heard some good things about Lantern but I haven't tried it as I was already really happy with surfshark and had a coupon for additional discount.
I bought NordVPN recently, it is one of the big ones. It's pretty good, I like it so far. I even found a coupon code (it's NOLOGS3Y), if you decide to go with it try the code. Few other who I heard are good: ProtonVPN, ExpressVPN, PrivateVPN.
I pay for PrivateVPN because the bandwidth is good and it has Netflix and Hulu functional VPNs in multiple countries (which few VPNs do) so that I can stream stuff like Rick and Morty from Asia or Community from Canada. I sometimes use Zenmate though which is a free in-browser VPN if you use Chrome
Indihome censors everything. Reddit, Vimeo (and other sites that use Vimeo hosting), Pirate Bay and normal torrenting sites, Indonesia-specific downloading sites, porn, certain religious sites, etc. are blocked.
But, you should probably be using a VPN anyways. PrivateVPN allows access to Netflix Indonesia (and other countries).
I pay 600k/month for 40Mbps. Keep looking on their site. They do list prices. Triple play (w/ TV and phone) is higher priced, but has 50 and 100 Mbps options. Internet only only goes up to 40Mbps, but it's significantly cheaper.
One to check out might be PrivateVPN and also offer an app for download to make connection easier for those not overly tech-savvy.
You are already paying for the stream. Might as well push a couple extra dollars as another user mentioned. VPN. Easiest way, just set location to out of territory... if you do not want to bother with extra cords, screen/browser casting, etc. ExpressVPN, PrivateVPN, IPVanish... they are all top quality, and quick for HD streams.
The servers rotate through every now and then. 100 used to work no problem, but I haven't seen that server in a bit. 102 used to work but just stopped. None of the others work anymore so I moved over to PrivateVPN, so far that's worked fine.
From the article:
"Motorola with Google has already updated the Android One Edition of the Moto X4 to Android 8.0 Oreo."
, they haven't. At least, I have't got it yet.
That said, I'm actually OK with waiting a bit. At least, I tell myself that other people getting it first means THEY can experience any regressions in behavior and/or major bugs, of which I can be warned & thus put off updating until the problems have been fixed.
My Nexus 5X had 8.1, but there's not anything huge I feel I'm missing by having "only" 7.1.1 on my Moto x4.
It's only been little things, like ability to rearrange the pull-down menu (or maybe I've just forgot how to do it on 7.x?), and having the PrivateVPN app integrated into the pulldown menu.
Anyway, I'm OK with waiting a bit longer.
Кому лень читать:
Таким образом, список «отказников» из сервисов VPN на данный момент выглядит так:

I would say that the speeds are quite comparable. Honestly though, I probably would have stuck with PIA if not for my Netflix subscription. I use Android and I liked the convenience of having a PIA quick settings tile to toggle VPN on and off with one click. Makes watching US Netflix on my phone so much less tedious. PrivateVPN has a usable Android app but not as convenient as the latter.
If you're not that into the idea of renewing your Netflix account, you might be happier staying with PIA.
Referral links ? Could you explain me what those are and how they affect your anonymity ?
Btw, best VPN I know in terms of anonymity, after a careful search, PrivateVPN, from Sweden I think. Doesn't look like much, but it is.
Hrti je super, ali treba ti VPN uz to koji nudi opciju Hrvatske. Ja sam uzela PrivateVPN za 10 eura/3 mjeseca jer su imali neki black friday popust. Probaj tako nešto. Ili neki sportski pub. Znam da kao službeno brdo kafića bojkotira, ali da se naći neki sportski koji pušta tekme.
I've been at it since the good old days of KaZaa and Limewire and I just got my first naughty notice two months ago. That's when I followed u/Omega_Pack's advice and bought a VPN.
PrivateVPN is $2.00/month if you sign up for three years, and I use it on my phone, computers, tablets, everything.
I can tell you what worked for me. I don't play on my phone, but on bluestacks and dc'ed all the time.
I use Turbo-Ping app on blue stacks.
And PrivateVPN (name of the service I use) on my computer.
If I had disconnect it was because my internet connection was literally interrupted and not because bandai is hypersensitive about the tinies timeouts.
The unstable internet connectino warning still comes, but you don't get the dc. Hope it helps you.
PS: I use my mobile phone as a hot spot, so this is as low tier internet as it gets here lol.
I'm using PrivateVPN for about seven years now. The speed is very good and seldom have disconnections. The windows version has an easy to install program. With Ubuntu it might be a little more difficult, BUT the do offer free installation help via Teamviewer!!!
Once they helped me to install a Kill-Swith on my torrent machine (Linux). Still working like a charm. It is a bit smaller company in Swiss, but the helpdesk guys know were they are talking about!
Use of Turbo-Ping and PrivateVPN fixed the disconnect issue for me on bluestacks. With the rare exception where my hotspot is just failing, but usually with the disconnects internet was fine except for hyper-sensitive OPBR.
I'm in Mexico and use PrivateVPN, but was having trouble with a NY location. Then switched to an LA IP and also opened the site in an incognito window and it worked perfectly. Not sure which change made a difference, but I got through and completed the form in about 2 minutes.
I know this was 2 years ago and this is a stretch, but do you remember how to set up delugevpn with PrivateVPN? I am trying to set it up and I loosely followed a tutorial on youtube but substituted privatevpn whenever he was using nordvpn. The problem is that the docker will start but the webgui wont load. It says "<IP of my NAS> refused to connect." When I turn off the vpn option in the docker settings the webgui then loads and I can download anything at full speed. I do have the .opvn file in the openvpn folder of the appdata and the password and everything is correct, and the subnet mask is correct as well. It just wont work and not even privatevpn support can solve it for me.
Ja sam uzeo PrivateVPN, cini mi se za 50€ cca 5 godina. Em mi je bilo jeftino, em je bilo podrzano na dockeru koji sam htio koristiti za torrente. Ostali nisu bas dobro radili u mom slucaju, recimo Nord nije jer ne podrzava port forwarding, ali to je moj specifican slucaj.
I now use PrivateVPN. They don't have wireguard protocol yet.
Thier default protocol is OpenVPN-UDP. As you see in:
So, I will use OpenVPN-UDP.
You could try contacting them. Before switching to Dedicated IP when they starting cutting them off, I contact my VPN (PrivateVPN) and they said they’d look into it. They made the Dedicated IP suggestion so I didn’t pursue it any further but if it’s something they think could cost them business they might be able to refresh their IP tables.
I’d imagine it varies from company to company but PrivateVPN has basically two sections. Shared IPs and Dedicated IPs. The shared UK ones got blocked as too many on the same IP tends to trigger suspicion. Dedicated IP means they assign a fresh IP to just your account. This keeps the flag from going off and I’ve been good since they started the bans.
Fite still works via VPN, just need the proper config.
I’m using a dedicated IP through PrivateVPN and have had no issues. I had used their default but it got blocked when most others did but dedicated has been clear since.
I find it hard to get a real unbiased vpn review. Example: Nord gets some good reviews but they are scam artists
I have been using PrivateVPN. Works for streaming most of the time but problems with Prime. Tech support is frustrating. I just tried Proton but even the Pro version will not get Prime. Most services do not offer instant chat or phone support
Can take 24 hrs. for an answer.
Seems the latest update to the app is targeting VPNs. Used PrivateVPN flawlessly for approx 8 months and got the same this week. Tried a few different VPNs and all the same. From what I’ve read, rolling back your app version will fix it, but I haven’t figure out yet how to do that on my Nvidia Shield.
Office 365 family
Youtube Premium family
my wife has some korean/asian/anime subscriptions too that her family leeches off too
I use Bitdefender because one random article I read on the internet says it's the best. Can't be wrong. Also, PrivateVPN. I'm Canadian and torrenting isn't even really enforceable here. Yet, here we are... no viruses. I think. Who are we kidding, I don't check.
I had the same issue with PrivateVPN and Qbit was stuck at Stalled. Took me a few days to figure out without calling them, but I did. It seems the VPN changed my windows adapter settings under Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections. There is a new WAN miniport there named: PrivateVPN Connection. You'll have to apply your credentials there.
Under Windows, you go to Settings/Network and Internet - Click on VPN on the left. You'll see your VPN name there and it will say disconnected. Now you'll need your VPN username and password and also the server address or VPN IP. Click on connect, and see if it connects. I had to change the connection type to TUN+TCP+443 in the wan port and VPN Client. Once you match all those up, the VPN port will connect and bam... Qbit started working again. Make sure you match the VPN connection port being used in Qbit under connection and use your VPN interface network under Advanced.
What is the DIP list? I've been thinking of trying PrivateVPN out.
Not sure which VPN provider would have the widest range of geo-unblocking for Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+ etc. in countries other than the US.
I assume most work with the US services such as Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Max, but what works well with unblocking the main 3 I mentioned in different countries?
I've been looking at both WeVPN and PrivateVPN. Do either of these have a trial at all? I guess I really should just test both of them out and pick which one works better for me.
Ma komplicirano mi je pun k. Nemam klasican klijent vec transmission u paketu sa VPN-om unutar dockera, ni je znam da li ima qBit u takvom paketu. I samo taj docker ima VPN jer mi za Usenet ne treba i je zelim si throttlat brzinu, i docker sve sam odradi, u biti ja ni ne otvaram port vec ga otvara na svom serveru VPN (zato sam i uzeo PrivateVPN jer recimo Nord nema tu opciju). I pise open, nemre bit da nije, al ok, ak nije toliko bitno onda se necu zamarat s tim. Nemam razloga ne seedat, kanta radi 24/7 tak da ono, nek stoji.
Most nodes on Mysterium are from the US and people tend to go with the familiar. If an IP works, they'll use it over and over again.
When I had a subscription to PrivateVPN, they had 3 IPs that allowed access to the American library of Netflix. By the end of it was just 1 IP and it was barely working half the time.
I think Mysterium should work better on promoting and marketing their service. They have hunders of residential IPs that can unblock Netflix, Prime, Hulu...
They're just not seizing the opportunity.
In my case, when I tried a lot of free VPNs like VPN Monster/speedVPN, they just fail to connect to the server (all of those worked fine before i upgraded to unlimited 25), even the paid PrivateVPN is the same unless I turn on the stealth mode.
PrivateVPN are simply lying. They told me most ports are opened outside some to prevent hacking.
I bought the 36 months package. Connected to their dedicated server location and all ports were closed. I tried OpenVPN profile and the windows client. GRC port scan shows all ports stealth or closed. I haven't found a single port that's opened. No configuration on their website. They basically told me that once I connect to one of their dedicated IP servers that they forward all ports to me. Not true.
All VPNs are having issues with Netflix lately, even though PrivateVPN has been working again with US servers. And even when it wasn’t working through the app itself there was a workaround through WireGuard that worked great.
When you cancel a service nobody knows why you did it, contacting them to ask for a refund seems like common sense to me.
I never asked for a refund but have contacted their costumer service a lot lately because of the Netflix issues, and they have been extremely helpful every time. But again, they can’t do anything if they don’t know the issue..
I also forgot to mention that HBO Max on PC via WeVPN doesn't save viewing progress status and the picture stays around 240-480p. On Android it's better, but on PC it's terrible, I learn other languages with subtitles, but I couldn't use the service properly on WeVPN. Alex also said it's no big deal that progress is not saved, it's not hard to find the place where viewing stopped manually)I would recommend to take PrivateVPN subscription, test it and decide for yourself. But as far as streaming services are concerned, this is one of the best. By the end of the year or maybe early next year they should add features to the app, add protocols. Although for torrents too, I get 95-98mb speeds out of my 100 mbps tariff. P2P traffic at PrivateVPN is allowed on all servers.
Does PrivateVPN have any kind of deals on? Does it also have an Android TV app? If some I might give them a go.
Also, the two VPNs I currently have, I used to be able to access Amazon Prime US region on my Android TV box (I can access other regions still, but not US Amazon Prime), does anyone know if WeVPN or PrivateVPN can access Amazon Prime US region?
WeVPN only guarantees 4 regions, these are the USA, Canada, UK and Japan. the other regions are not guaranteed. I would suggest to try PrivateVPN there works about 15-20 Netflix regions, Spain works, just checked. And its price was less than WeVPN. They have very toxic staff, privat support has never said a bad word and solved all problems in the shortest possible time. WeVPN is worse)
So I found a workaround. Used a VPN and it works through the VPN. PrivateVPN has a 7 day free trial no credit card required. But yeah, still gonna go through support and see why my connection doesn't work organically, will update.
So I got the same thing too
basically there is a option within qbitrorrent that requires you to change the interface of the link you're using to torrent with.
go to settings
>Interface to bind to
>select the VPN adapter
Usually in most cases at least for me I have PrivateVPN, is that it installs a TAP adapter or some sorta adapter that allows you to connect to the VPN in question all you have to do is change it to that adapter and it should be it.
If you're not sure do the following in CMD
then look at the adapters, then turn on the VPN and do the same thing again then there should be an IP address associated with the VPN adapter and read what adapter it is and then link it interface within qbitotrrent.
