VPN Work Image 7

Hello all, this is going to be another quick blog post on using a VPN on OpenELEC. In the last few days I’ve seen a surge in people asking here about why the need for VPN and how to go about getting one. So I might as well go ahead and give this brief description.

Why a VPN?

Hopefully that will give you more insight into why you might use a VPN.

  1. Hi,
    I followed the instructions and I keep getting an error after entering my generated username and password. Any ideas?

  2. Openelec 5.0.8 was the last version I was able to use PIA on. I have also read on the Openelec forum that they no longer support VPN! I don’t understand this logic. I have not tried using it with Kodi (windows or Android)

  3. Like others here, I am running Openelec 5.0.2 on a RPi2 and don’t appear to have the PIA running successfully. It says I am connected to the destination (i.e., Germany, Brazil etc.) but My IP status still shows my native IP address. I am using the PPTP/socks generated username and password.

    I also see a note in VPN settings that says ‘Try experimental bin’. I receive an error if this is not selected. But what is it for? None of the instructions identify this as a step.

    Anyone have any suggestions? Much appreciate any feedback.
