Yes I did. Didn't seem to make any difference.  Also - and this has got to be the biggest joke of all - the intermediate server (based in Lisbon) that appeared in the leak test seemed to be an Avast server 185.201.188.1!!  Ho Ho (not).  I still reckon that the bbc could see this server and denied me my connection request even though the final destination was a UK-based server.

I think I posted a screenshot of this leak test earlier in this topic but can't see where (Reply 8#??).

Anyway - I have uninstalled Secureline and will be asking for my money back.  I suggest that anyone looking to connect reliably to IPlayer from overseas does the same and tries another VPN supplier.

Luckily I still have my NordVPN contract and their connections do still work most of the time - unlike Secureline where I never got a connection in repeated attempts over several days...
