Hybrid VPN and Netflix

Recommended Posts

Good Day Netduma Army, when I have an issue with sorting something out you guys always seem to give the best advice. I live in the U.S and I recently purchased NordVPN for about $10 a month with the hopes of watching Netflix with my girlfriend who lives in Canada. I set up the Hybrid VPN on the Netduma and everything seemed to go well. I got my Canadian server hooked up and I'm ready to go. However, when I go to watch something a notice comes up stating, "You seem to be using an unblocker or proxy. please turn off any of these services and try again. For more help, visit netflix.com/proxy." Does anybody have any ideas on how to bypass this so I can go ahead and watch some Canadian Netflix?IMG_20190803_023932.thumb.jpg.af24fbd6536c84d7a650ef7350beea52.jpg

You can try a different vpn server such as a city based 1. Your problem is that netflix records the ip addresses of the vpn providers as they are all usually static block ip addresses, meaning that multiple vpn members share the same publicly visible p address.

As BD said, this looks like Netflix itself detecting that you are using a known VPN server to them. Perhaps check on the Nord VPN forums for advice on which servers to use?

Hmm is there such a thing as a VPN with dynamic IP?

There are some VPN providers that offer for a premium a dedicated static ip address. I know purevpn have a netflix button on their desktop app that says netflix on it so when you connect it bypasses their geo filtering and vpn detection.

There is something wrong with these OpenVPN configurations, at least on some.

I have ExpressVPN. When I use their app on my phone or ipad it works fine with Netflix. But when I download the OpenVPN file for the same server and load it into my XR500 it detects that it is a VPN somehow. I could live with that but I oftwn watch Netflix on a AppleTV and that has no VPN setting so it has to be done at router level.

That's strange, perhaps the desktop app is doing some advanced stuff that won't work with OpenVPN? It could also possibly be to do with the DNS leak. This could be bypassed by temporarily setting your DNS server manually to whatever ExpressVPN uses.

I haven't investigated it further to be honest. I tried contacting the tech support of ExpressVPN and they just wanted me to change servers all the time giving the same results.

 

I haven't spent any time on it since. I could try the DNS like you suggest :)

I don't understand why people pay for VPN at all. There are plenty of good free programs, and for some reason people pay for it! I don't get it, guys :) Why watch Netflix through some bad VPN when there is a Netflix VPN https://www.netflix-vpn.com/  . This program is even designed for this. And you pay money for a subscription and think that this will give you a one-hundred-percent guarantee of anonymity and hacking programs, how naive you are. Here I read about people like you and I really feel sorry for you guys, seriously. Well, I hope you will solve your problem my friend, sorry for the extra emotions :) It's just that Google has a lot of cool programs, and you choose the bad ones.
