Re: VPN on an EE smart hub

@daveac: The EE SH is designed to work with most VPN s/ware.

 

Just connect to your chosen VPN thro' the VPN client they would have supplied you with.

 

You might need to set Advanced / BB / VPN / Post Clamping to ON.

Re: VPN on an EE smart hub

Thanks for the info I am not using a VPN on my PC. I should have given more info I am using a smart tv and it does not allow a vpn on the TV. One sugestion has been to set up the VPN on the router itself which I have been told about by a couple of people but I don't know how/if I can do this on a smart hub.

Re: VPN on an EE smart hub

Why on earth do you need the TV to connect over VPN? Trying to get to disallowed channels? That's why you can't have VPNs on Smart TVs.

 

The EE SH cannot incorporate a VPN; it just works alongside them.
