Using a VPN- Merging Thread

Notice to Members

Kodi does not require a VPN to function. If you choose to use a VPN, then that is a 3rd party modification and outside the scope of this forum.

You will need to contact the paid support desk of your VPN provider for assistance.


Read the VPN Policy for further information... Official:VPN_policy (wiki)

Hello everyone !!!

I am new to Kodi but for what i read it is better to install Kodi and a VPN, firewall or something, myself i like security a lot and already had a paid VPN in the past but now i am not paying for it anymore until some more days, my idea is to use my browsers VPN, which is free in the meantime i pay for mine, with Kodi (dont know if in my browser or something), can this be done?
Thank you.

We do not offer support for VPN's. That is a 3rd party modification and outside the scope of this forum. Kodi does NOT need a VPN to operate.

Hi there,

great forum here !!!!!!

My question:

Iám using Openvpn on Windows with a provider. When I turn Openvpn on and connect to a vpn (for example in Swiss), does it mean when I turn on Kodi, that it´s using the VPN in Swiss too ?

So there is no need for the URL Resolver or to use Openvpn in Kodi right ?

Cheers

Hello @supkod

Unfortunately we provide no support for VPN's. That is a 3rd party modification outside the scope of this forum.

I would suggest contacting the Help Desk of your provider.

Came across this one   https://brianhornsby.com/kodi_addons/openvpn   but it's not for Android.  

I'm looking for one to run with Kodi on Fire TV.

I connected my firestick to purevpn, but wasn't able to stream via kodi addon because of geographical restriction.  I tried adding kodi vpn add-on for purevpn, but that is not allowing me to connect any country. 

Am i doing it correctly? Has anybody tried this before?

VPN is not an initial requirement for using Kodi, moved the thread to the Off-topic section.

Hello,

I often travel abroad and I would like to watch the Netflix from my contry through a VPN. But the playback aways fails when a try to use a VPN service. Is this a a intentional limitation added by the developers of the addon?

Thanks

Hello

I am trying to setup a VPN client on my Kodi Box via Open VPN.  I already use a VPN provider called F-Secure their product is called FreedomVPN.
When I go to configure the VPN on Open VPN I have had to select the VPN Provider as "User Defined".  I am not sure what my username and password is as my desktop app just autologs me in.

Cheers
Paul
