Using a VPN- Merging Thread
#16
Hi,
 I've been using kodi for several years now and love it. I finally decided to convert my dvd's and make my own video library. I bought a NAS and set it up with mhPHPadmin to setup an SQL to access through kodi. Got it all up and running and couldn't be happier except.....now, if I turn my VPN (IPVanish) kodi won't work until i turn it off. Help! 

Android G-Box2 
Kodi and VPN have been working fine, I believe it has to do with either a Kodi setting (something about kodi trying to access NAS but NAS  doesn't recognize the G-box IP anymore?) or the advancedsetting .sql file is not correct?

Help

A VPN is a 3rd party modification outside the scope of this forum. You do not need a VPN to use Kodi, especially when accessing local media. We are unable to assist you.

I suggest you contact the Help Desk of your VPN Provider.

Then that's tough luck.

We all know what a VPN can do, and why people use it.

Not 100% correct. We recognise that there are legitimate uses for a VPN, but the use of them is outside the scope of this forum, and Kodi works perfectly well without one. We see it as a 3rd party modification.

As most people will be paying for that service, then they will need to contact the paid support services of the VPN provider for assistance.

Hello,

I try to use the Kore remote control, but i must disable the computer's VPN, otherwise the connection is lost. But a VPN is also activated on my phone and it doesn't give me any problem.

Thanks.

So...does it means that the blocking of any connection to my phone if i'm using a VPN on my computer is deliberated ?

No, Kodi and KoRe work just fine on their own. If there is other or outside software/hardware involved, it's basically "not our problem".
As per VPN policy, this thread will be moved to the Off-topic section of our forum.

That’s a question for your VPN provider, not us.

Hi all
not too sure where to paste this, so please no flames if the wrong place
up to a few months ago I was using kodi on ubuntu 16 on a ARM SBC
I started to find that more and more when starting a plugin , both official and un official 
you could select what you wanted to watch and the dreaded demux failure would occur, often after a few attempts it would eventaully play.
I'm in the UK and the use of a VPN is solely to get around geolocation restrictions in the USA..
This got really bad and I updated the OS to ubuntu18.04 and Kodi17.6, and been pulling my hair out.
I have now identified the problem, but not sure if there is a solution.
I use ipvanish and have tried servers in Atlanta, Chicago and New York, if I turn the VPN off I can use stream from Crackle and other addons
If I use a UK server sometimes I still get a problem.
Even with a fresh install today with just kodi on the wee computer turning the VPN on to a USA server allows streams on the wnbc addon, but they stall after a few seconds, 
but with VPN on I get demux failure on nearly everything.
So is this a ipvanish thing , or over zealous blocking of streams going to vpn servers.
With the vpn on to the USA even trying to update the ubuntu system fails to download.
, that shouldn't happen as its just a secure tunnel from A to B
Is anyone else seeing this 
Thanks
Richard

Sorry, but it is in the wrong place as per our VPN policy (wiki) which you should read.
This thread will be moved to the Off-Topic section of our forum, where only technical talk will be allowed.
Should you have a problem with internet access and need VPN to circumvent certain situations, then you are out of luck on this forum.
