VPN is not hiding country
« on: July 14, 2020, 05:34:51 PM »
Hello support.

Hoping for a little nudge in the right direction here.

I am a premiun subscriber and have Avast SecureLine VPN installed.
However my location is not hidden and and can't access e.g. Channel4 UK based website content.

My location is set to UK (adventureland).
My WiFi adapters DNS it set to Cisco OpenDNS 208.67.222.222 / 208.67.220.220
After this setting I flushed DNS via CMD.
When checking on ipleak.net my DNS is DK where I'm at.

Thus I get "content not available outside UK" when trying to watch content on Channel4.com

I've tried the two other locations in UK, and I have tried other DNS settings as well.

What do I need to do to truly be "in the UK"?


***EDIT**

After looking at other suggestion I've added this exception to Avast: dns://*.channel4.com*

And I've added WebRTC Network Limiter + WebRTC Leakprevent to Chrome.

Now it seems to be working even though ipleak.net still sees me using Danish DNS somehow.
Not sure which of the three above did it, but just happy that is works :)

**EDIT 2***


Aaaand back to not working... So still hoping for someone with other suggestions
