proxpn vpn wont connect to internet when used

Postby sooperphreek » Dec 31st, 2012, 12:31 am

saw a facebook about a guy who used proxpn to watch full netflicks lineup from the states. was so tempting i decided to check it out. when xpn is running through a dallas server i try to use firefox or chrome and cant connect to the network or use internet. i am using my a10 amd laptop....get about 27ish speeds on internet on speedtest.net....am on windows 7.....and would really love to harness the potential of what netflicks is really all about. any suggestions?

This is what comes up on google

This webpage is not available
The server at search.babylon.com can't be found, because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website's name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.
Here are some suggestions:
Reload this webpage later.
Check your Internet connection. Restart any router, modem, or other network devices you may be using.
Check your DNS settings. Contact your network administrator if you're not sure what this means.
Try disabling network prediction by following these steps: Go to the Chrome menu > Settings > Show advanced settings... and deselect "Predict network actions to improve page load performance." If this does not resolve the issue, we recommend selecting this option again for improved performance.
Add Google Chrome as a permitted program in your firewall's or antivirus software's settings. If it is already a permitted program, try deleting it from the list of permitted programs and adding it again.
If you use a proxy server, check your proxy settings or contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working. If you don't believe you should be using a proxy server, adjust your proxy settings: Go to the Chrome menu > Settings > Show advanced settings... > Change proxy settings... > LAN Settings and deselect the "Use a proxy server for your LAN" checkbox.
Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): Unable to resolve the server's DNS address.

this comes up on firefox.

Server not found

Firefox can't find the server at www.google.ca.

Check the address for typing errors such as
ww.example.com instead of
www.example.com
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

are you using the free basic service at proxpn

Yes, our Basic Accounts are free. While you do get the same level of security, privacy, and ease of use as a Premium Account, we limit your speed through the VPN to 300kbps and you are restricted to one location in the United States


HMA while not free has servers in 53 countries and if you buy yearly it works out to $4.99 a month.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything. I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete douchebags.

You should use the DNS method instead of VPN to get the US netflix going. I'm currently using "blockless" at around 5 bux a month.

DNS method is superior and less speed restricts as well.
VPN will limit you severely, enough so that while you have the full netflix selection, you'll not be able to watch 90% of it.

Not anymore. I was using one a few months ago and they stopped offering the service for Netflix due to high usage.. Had to switch to a paid solution

naw....i dont test things....i leave that to the binary junkies. and if they want to offer a tried and true solution ill gladly accept that help. it would be interesting if something works but netflicks and hulu have always been a couple of steps ahead in the past.

The poster is looking for a DNS service that forwards requests to netflix over to their US based servers so you get US content instead of the weak Canadian stuff.

yes I realize that. would Google's public DNS not work to achieve that?
from what Ive read on another forum, it seems to work for others.
