Hi guys,

 

when trying to open BBC iPlayer on my laptop on both OSs Windows and Linux. the only way I could open it, is using SSTP.

when I used (Torguard VPN client) and tried the DNS leak test, my DNS was discovered from Netherlands while using SSTP (UK & US) it was discovered from UK & US respectively.

Hello, the TorGuard client uses DNS that is geo located depending on your location, it will connect to the nearest dns server to you.

OP, were you able to use torguard for iplayer? I have been unsuccessful though I had another VPN provider which worked no problem, not sure why with torguard it doesnt.

 

I switched because I thought they'd provide a better service but I am still unable to access netflix in any other country besides the US (for which they provided a fix).

BBC iPlayer works with Hola, but not torguard VPN.  With the torGuard VPN, their proxy detection is triggered, but Hola plugin lets videos play OK.

Hello,

We offer streaming IP's for BBC iPlayer, default shared servers will be blocked, you need to request a streaming IP on our main support desk but they do cost an additional 3 USD p/m.
