Heads up for anyone who uses high security sites like online gambling etc

I'm running into some big authorization/verification problems with my bodog account as I had the VPN running when trying to cash out and they saw it as a computer in San Jose was trying to withdraw from my account and froze it. Now I have to send them a bunch of verification items.

Best to disable the VPN when logging into sites like that

I don't think that would have anything to do with VPN

Well they said specifically my login location was not one they recognized and asked if I had been on vacation or traveling when I attempted a payout, so seems like it was somthing to do with it?

Yea that would apply to online banking, online gambling, online brokerage, etc... basically any high security sites that track what IP address you normally login from. The VPN providing an unfamiliar or out of country IP address when you login will send red flags that could potentially restrict your account until cleared up.

You can do both but most of us just set it up on the computer so you can enable and disable it whenever you want.

PIA has a desktop client. On my Mac there's a little icon dude that sits on my menu bar that I can hit connect/disconnect.

Here's some more fuel to add to the 'subscribe to a VPN' fire:


Quote:
Using VPNs to watch US Netflix is STEALING
Watching U.S. Netflix in Canada by using location-hiding services such as VPNs is stealing and needs to be more frowned upon, the new president of Bell Media says.

At a keynote speech at the Telecom Summit in Toronto on Wednesday, Mary Ann Turcke said Canadians who skirt copyright laws by finding ways of accessing digital content hurt Canadian culture and jobs and need to stop.

"It has to become socially unacceptable to admit to another human being that you are VPNing into U.S. Netflix," she said, "like throwing garbage out your car window — you just don't do it."

Streaming services like Netflix offer customers access to a list of content based on their location. Location is determined by a device's IP address, but a service known as a Virtual Private Network or VPN can fiddle with that and give Canadians, for example, access to Netflix's U.S. catalogue, which is perceived by many to have more, and better, content.

Rather than pushing for more regulation from government or the CRTC to ban the practice, she called on the industry to work together to root out the problem, and to insist that Canadians frown on it the same way they would many other types of illegal activity.

Canadian television produces $6 billion a year to Canada's GDP and employs 125,000 people.

"Not only does society not scold anyone for stealing content — we feature 'how to' articles in our national newspapers educating the masses on how to get around copyright law."

As head of Canada's largest media company, with 106 radio stations and 30 local TV stations across the country, Turcke finds herself at the forefront of the piracy debate not even two months into getting the job.

In her speech, Turcke painted herself not only as an unabashed champion for Canadian television, but also one who's more optimistic than many about its future.

Far from the accepted narrative that television viewers are skewing older as young Canadians turn elsewhere, Turcke said the average age of a CTV News viewer has been getting younger for several years now.

So she remains confident that the industry has a future. "Delighting Canadians means making it easy to find great content — on any screen — anywhere," she said. "Just make it easy. Viewers are demanding simplicity, and they will seek it out."

Her speech suggests she doesn't see the television industry as being engaged in a war with, as she puts it, "the dreaded Netflix," but rather she thinks the industry needs to adapt to give Canadians what they want, how they want it.

And she used two examples from within her own family to illustrate the point. First, she cited her 15-year-old daughter, who upon returning from the U.S. one day decided she was "bound and determined" to get around Netflix's geolocation rules for Canada because she had become used to the offerings available on the U.S. service.

"I won't spare you the parenting that ensued — she was told she was stealing and that it was like stealing anything else," Turcke said. "Suffice to say there is no more VPNing."

Future looks bright, Turcke says

In another anecdote, she described how watching her 20-year-old daughter and her roommates decide on whether or not to get cable television in their dorm room made her more confident in the industry's future.

"They will get TV — because they want to watch good content, period," Turcke said.

She said she looks forward to working with the CRTC on an upcoming hearing on so-called "discoverability" of digital content.

"Discoverability does not mean — at least not to me, and I hope not to any of you — watching whatever you want for free," she said.

While the industry faces many financial challenges, Turcke's speech suggested the head of Canada's largest media company is confident that it can find a way to make it work for everyone.

"The economic model that gets us from here to there is intimidating, but that is what we get paid to figure out," she said.

Turcke... more like Turkey. Stealing? What a fucking idiot.

^ Your router is most likely not power enough to encrypt your entire connection.

Yeah you need a good router (or a PC set up as one) to be able to run through a VPN directly on it...

So I'm with PIA.

I got two copyright notices from Telus for allegedly downloading a couple of TV episodes from HBO. Both times I had PIA running. The first time, I thought I didn't connect it. The second time I made sure to connect PIA first and then I still got a copyright notice.

I talked to PIA support and they have confirmed I set up the client correctly. They got me to download a tracker and they still say I have connected correctly.

So for whatever reason it isn't working for me??

The only thing the CSR can see is that my PIA client may be disconnecting for a split moment and this allows my actual IP to get through.

I'm going to give it one more chance and see. Because if I get another notice, then I might as well cancel as this is isn't working for me.

You might be experiencing a DNS Leak, when your VPN connection is leaking, it is leaking your ISP's DNS IP address, hence tracing back to you.

On your router, make sure your DNS settings are changed to the following:

OpenDNS:

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

OR

Google DNS Server:

8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

You can mix and match if you like. If your PIA application is online all of the time, then DNS leak is the only possibility that I can think of.

Also use this application to monitor your VPN connection (Windows ONLY).

Setting up app correctly doesn't mean it is setup well.

Depending on which application you are using, often you can bind your application's connection to the VPN.. eg tun0. That way, the app is only connected via connection and nothing else.. so if no VPN, no connection.

I don't particularly like client level utilities like kill switch, because it promotes ignorance and tolerance for misconfiguration.

I'm about to head back to China on a business trip and having difficulty finding a vpn for my iphone6. A few weeks ago, I bought IPVanish that was completely useless in China. Before that I've tried Cyberghost.... that didn't work either. Looks like the great firewall in China got beefed up this month, and is going after all VPN services. Any good suggestions for my iphone6 would be appreciated!

Thanks for the reply.
I'll try this and see if it works.

Is there any way of detecting a DNS leak?

Sign up for a good newsgroup provider that offers encrypted SSL connection and you'll never have to worry about getting a notice ever again.

Setup an AWS instance and proxy through it.

If your company is big enough eg large accounting firms etc use their connection.

I've gained access on my laptop using my Company's Global connect software. Even though it was pretty choppy at best. But nothing works for my Iphone, even revscene sometimes just times out over there. Dropbox, google maps... almost half of my Iphone apps just rendered useless.

I don't recommend PIA's kill switch as it's a hit or miss.

Someone should add some more info to the OP such as DNS IP addresses, DNS test sites, basic setups, etc. Tired of reposting the same info over and over again.
