I got it working - started using a VPN service, updated the DNS addresses and Netflix is now up and running.Back to top     pkang0202Joined: 09 Mar 2007Posted: Sun Mar 18, 2012 4:30 pm    Post subject: darkjedidave wrote:I have a VPN router set up through StrongVPN and use it for my Roku, PS3, Xbox and iDevices. Works fine and able to stream Netflix and other US/UK apps, so I'm not sure why it doesn't work for pkang0202I used Astrill. From what I got from talking to their(Astrill) tech support, their VPN didnt' support some kind of protocol that the XBox Live uses. Looks like STrong VPN does.Back to top     HootsmonJoined: 22 Jan 2008Posted: Mon Mar 19, 2012 7:12 pm   Cheap vpn Post subject: Okay, I'm a bit of a moron when it comes to technical stuff, so could someone give me a quick walkthrough how this works? If I subscribe to STrong VPN, at 7 dollars a month, I could set up my router to think that I'm in the UK? Then I could subscribe to the UK services on Xbox Live like Sky and such?

Streaming Xbox content in KoreaHello, I'm trying to set up an Xbox 360 to stream online content from the UK/US, but as expected it blocks it because of the IP address being in Korea. What do people use in order to circumvent this? Is there a specific proxy server for this? ThanksBack to top pkang0202Joined: 09 Mar 2007Posted: Fri Mar 16, 2012 8:33 pm    Post subject: AFAIK there is no way. Even if you use a VPN as a gateway (via router or another computer), XBox Live still finds a way to know your location.Back to top HootsmonJoined: 22 Jan 2008Posted: Sun Mar 18, 2012 2:36 am    Post subject: Yeah, I wish there was a way around it but I have no idea. I'd love to be able to watch SKY television from the UK but it won't let me log in from here. I imagine there's no way around it what with it being a console...Back to top cheap vpn darkjedidaveJoined: 19 Aug 2009Location: Yonhi-Dong, SeoulPosted: Sun Mar 18, 2012 3:17 am    Post subject: I have a VPN router set up through StrongVPN and use it for my Roku, PS3, Xbox and iDevices.

Or, I think STrongVPN sells routers that are already pre-configured.Back to top HootsmonJoined: 22 Jan 2008Posted: Tue Mar 20, 2012 4:31 am    Post subject: pkang0202 wrote:Hootsmon wrote:Okay, I'm a bit of a moron when it comes to technical stuff, so could someone give me a quick walkthrough how this works?

I just threw out my old router that was already flashed with DD-WRT because one of the antennas broke and it was only sending out half a signal and bought a new IpTime router instead. Bollocks.
