> has settled a copyright infringement lawsuit filed by a group of independent movie companies earlier this year. As part of the deal, the VPN agreed to block all BitTorrent traffic and log IP-address information on its US servers. While this a controversial order, says that users are still protected as the company will stop using US servers.
"Responding to the news, informs TorrentFreak that it will continue to keep its users private. While it agreed to the terms above, the company says that it will circumvent the measures by discontinuing its US servers.
“We do not intend to log our customers so we will stop offering US servers. We refused to share any information about our customers, which we don’t have anyway,” a VPN spokesperson informed TF.
“We are not big enough to keep fighting,” adds, stressing that it will continue to protect users."

This is somehow the funniest thing I've read all week
>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.
Here's the NordVPN support article that walks you through it:
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?
Best way is to VPN your router
yes, it does, although netflix keeps making it harder and harder. not sure which netflix you are trying to access, but nordvpns page.
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.
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."
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.
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
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.
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)
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
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 !
Yeah there is a reason to that. Basically to watch US netflix with NordVPN you can connect to any region except UK, JP, CA,FR,GER and IT. In other words you won't be able to view the Spanish Netflix catalog even if they don't support Spain.
Netflix US: You should connect to any of our servers in countries other than the United Kingdom, Canada, Japan, France, Germany, and Italy.
you can change your DNS on nordvpn, this article practically answers everything, just scroll to the end of it
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.
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
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, 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
They have lists of servers they recommend for use with Netflix
Edit: Sorry, my text is old news, now it looks like it's primarily DNS if you have issues, otherwise any of their servers in each region should work fine. TIL.
TL;DR, nothing special to do, connect and watch away
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
This, that's all, all your computer activity will be secured.
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
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.
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,
>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.
I'm nordvpn user too and I use lots of different servers (most users do) depending on what's the purpose, the speed and etc. E.g. if you're torrenting, you have to use p2p servers and if you want to watch different countries netflix content there's a list of servers you can connect to. So it really depends on your needs.
Doesn't work for me either, haven't tried for the last weeks though. On their website they say: Note: we currently do not support Netflix on TV devices. ()
But it's basically an Android device, so I don't understand why it's not working.
You're probably reminiscing about ****.... sadly, it no longer exists.
emerged out of the remnants to "carry the flag" ... you can still use the original if you choose, but it's no longer linked directly to the app.
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
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.
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 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 on your device. 4. Restart your device.
Take a look at this support thread:
It outlines specialized Netflix servers which have a far higher chance of working.
NordVPN works with Netflix US, UK, JP, NL and Greece. Here's a list of the specialized Netflix servers:
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 .
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.
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 ()
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.
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.
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.
These are the servers you should take to watch netflix trough vpn
I'm always using Server 68 in the Netherlands, still working
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.
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:
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?
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".
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.
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
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?
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
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.
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?
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.
Here you go
Yes your subnet will need to be different in your cloud network than your local network its connecting to
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?
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.
desktop have a VPN integration () , if you try to watch something without being connected to a 's servers, it will display a warning message and the lock icon while be red (... unless you intentionally disable VPN feature in PCT settings).
I think it can fit your need here.
dont keep logs if you have any other prof i will be glad to look into it
Now abount Popcorn Time you can still disable VPN from settings
You have any other issue? Go on Github post it
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a service that lets you access the web safely and privately by routing your connection through a server and hiding your online actions. Then the other computer passes your traffic back into the Internet.
Since your actions are hidden your service provider doesn't know you are downloading a torrent. All they can see is you have an encrypted connection to another computer. And people who are watching torrents being downloaded can't trace it back to you. I use with OpenVPN. But its a little complicated to setup. As a newbie you might like
The only fair explanation I found is on their page. If you tried everything according to this and it did not work, try their customer support. I knew nothing about vpn's at first. As I was fairly new to vpn's, I've asked them what should I do and they explained to me everything quickly.
I can't say for sure. It depends on what kind of router you have.
They seem to flip back and forth I think on whether all or just some servers work for this type of thing, I imagine as they have to tweak things to stay ahead of the security measures.
They keep this page updated though:
Looks as if Firestick is out though.
If the above doesn’t help with the Android thingy I’d suggest reaching out to their support, I’ve always found them responsive and helpful.
I have followed this guide, but have added the following rules and interfaces, as well as a VPN screenshot.
I am able to connect using LAN, getting an address from DHCP.
BuiltIn and Wireless are receiving IP's on their proper range. I am unable to reach the management interface, even though Listen on all is selected.
I am also unable to reach anything outside of the network from BuiltIn or Wireless, although LAN works fine, and I have mirrored the rules from LAN to Wireless and BuiltIn
I just checked it looks like it’s out of date :\
They updated it to this one,, basically telling you to connect to any server that isn’t in certain countries from their list
But I can tell you at least 2959 works for me atm
NordVPN support has an article about that. If none of these servers work, your best bet is to contact the support. This is like a cat and mouse game, since Netflix, Hulu, ... ban IP addresses that belong to VPN companies all the time. And VPN companies try to get new IP addresses all the time.
I have an ADVPN connecting ~20 sites running on FortiOS 6.0.5 that is working flawlessly
Thanks for the reply! I've since found out that if you connect to any of their servers other than the "United Kingdom, Canada, Netherlands, Japan, France, and Italy", you'll be routed to the US library.
Hey man. Judging from this I think that Nord just doesn't support Netflix from India or Korea so I'm afraid you're out of luck, might have to look into other options
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
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?
you probably need to clean your cache/cookies and then use the newest servers available on nordvpn (the newest servers = the highest number of the server), because they should be unknown to netflix. also, try switching servers, and look for yourself, which are working better. nordvpn's support has this article, so check it.
i use i like it because i can choose different geographical server locations for geolocked content on other services like netflix. Not sure if the others can do that, but i know that's what works for me.
I like to use because it lets me choose geographical server locations. I'm not sure if the others do or do not, but i like that feature because it also lets me view geolocked netflix content as well.
Something to think about
That's because most of the VPNs work only with the biggest NX regions, so in that case almost every VPN will redirect you to some other region. That's because all everyone want is the USA Netflix (biggest content). Try reading here, Nord has a little bit instructions on this.
It sounds like your game is bypassing the VPN virtual adaptor in Windows. It would probably be easiest to configure Nord VPN on your router (And removing Nord from your PC), forcing all traffic to go through the VPN. This would mean your computer wouldn't be aware of the VPN, thinking its just a normal internet connection. If you're using a VPN to bypass censorship, this is probably the best method.
NOTE: Nord VPN may block R6, I don't know for sure though
Setup Nord on a router (Only works with some routers)
I was having a similar problem, could no longer use the US server to access netflix found a thread with this link
Thought "I can use almost any country and it'll let me into US netflix? Hah alright whatever sure" turned on Belgium, let me into the US netflix instantly. Don't know why that works, but it did.
I'd suggest to clean your cache and run NordVPN before opening Netflix, then try these (), or just try the most recent UK servers, aka the ones that have the highest number
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
