    Default VPN issue

    Trying to use Ivacy VPN.
    Followed the guide but I click on, it asks for password, I give it, it then disconnects.

    They were helping via chat but then it hung up, email will take ages....any ideas they got me to do this so far:

    Have you setup your VPN as shown in the link below?
    I notice the Log mentions MPPE required.

    Default Re: VPN issue

    OK, don't worry, had to untick one of the authentications....got it going.
    But it was a fail.

    All I wanted to do was watch Adrift on netflix, with a paid account.

    But no....

    I give up, everything I look for on it is blocked for NZ, but hey they're on Sky, so bugger it, I'll just pay for Sky Movies again.

    Try Turbo VPN.

    I used it when I was in China recently. Very simple and easy to use and works great! I could access Youtube, Facebook and WhatsApp without any issue.

    Maybe just as well you couldn't get it to work. Not all VPN's work with Netflix, including Ivacy (regardless of OS)

    OK if you say so

    When using a more expensive (generally) Something like Nord, that works ( or so it claims)

    Default Re: VPN issue

    I gave up on it, paid for a vpn that worked for a few months then stopped. Netflix regularly work to block them.
    If it's just a single movie now and again you can hire then from the windows or google store or lightbox has an ok range.

    There's other means of course.

    As dugimodo says. Ivacy were very helpful - I'll give them that, and apologetic, promptly refunding me.
    As I said, easier to just pay for Sky movie channels.

    Might be a little late but I just recalled Stuffpix https://www.stuffpix.co.nz/movie/248...0-2d99cc3dc7ab

    Never used them but for single rentals it's an option
