VPN services to allow Canadians to access sites like Hulu
Is it within the forum rules to discuss VPN services? Such services can give you anonymity on the web with the added benefit of appearing to come from another geography, and therefore allow Canadians to access streaming video sites such as Hulu and US TV network sites. Using a service with a UK IP would allow you to access BBC online content that is online available to UK based IP addresses.
I do not believe such products are illegal so I don't see a problem but I thought I should ask first.
@tbusa - How do you set it up to work with your HD200s? When you set it up for one PC on your LAN does it mean that your entire LAN is now on the VPN and can access these sites? It is great to hear that you can do this since I have four HD-200s and am very interested in doing this as well.
Or do you have to do the configuration on your router rather than on your PC network setup?
I have two nics on my sage server, one is default set VPN connection directly to purevpn with firewall turned on(a must) and the other is for my hyper-v with no gateway set on the adapter and it's also on a different subnet. And in Sage.properties file, set the "force gateway ip address" to the vpn adapter and with the upcoming hulu support this setup will work. Playon upnp server and the standalone HD200 works right now but its rather slow and painful. The Sagetv software with direct access to hulu will be alot better than the playon way for sure.
The only problem I have is Rogers and there CAPS. but thats another topic.
