    Hi there ....

    I have a couple of general enquiries....

    Firstly.... I have a HS7 (satalite type)..I tried to install the VPN plugin with one of the compatible providers...the reason for this was to stream via the internet with the HDD option that come with the HS7.....

    The HS7 crashed....my question is.....is there anyway of useing a VPN on the HS7 (THE PLUGIN DID NOT WORK )..

    Secondly.....could anybody recommend any effective (popular) plugins that will enhance the HS7 experience....l can see that there are numerous plugins but the discriptions are brief and there is no way of confirming if they any good...i wiulw like to here of other users experiences....i''m. a big movie and spotts fan...

    With my fresh infinity installation I have installed the following plugins:

    1, VPN (did not work for me)
    2, .......17.6


    Thank you I advance..

    You should see " Add VPN Easily " in the plugin panel, have you tried this ?

    Which part ?
    You choose which VPN you are with, enter user and pass, press save/ok and then choose server

    Perhaps I made error from my end...this all happened shortly after a rather ify... installation which has now settled down...

    I'll try my H2H as a test along with screen shots.....

    Sorry guys..

    Easy VPN does not work properly...

    I have managed to populate the required areas...Oh.. my experience was...you really need to do the installation in slow motion...

    The VPN apoears to turn on (green lights and all) ...

    However..eventually the IP address the VPN deplays is a short distance from my front door...

    Not reasuring at all..

    I have used NORD..pretty pointless containg them..all of my of device with Nord work perfectly...

    I'm not sure if Nord should be one of the providers....OF DO IF HAVE A GLEARING SETTINGS PROBLEM..

    Interested to hear your views...

    Thanks in advance

    Do you see Nord as 1 of the providers in the plugin?

    When you start VPN goto network menu, utilities, openvpn and check it's still green next to running if it's still running goto network menu and run a network test.

    Hay thanks....

    restarted the Network and VPN appears to work...

    However..I have tried changing.." country to run VPN through" X3...and the same Nord IP address remains....

    I thinks it all good .. I've check again on line with positive results ranging from this being a non existent IP address to it being 3-75 miles away...

    I think it's doing the job...

    could you give a few about the "country to run VPN through"..as the IP address..is clearly UK based....

    oh the most important thing is that H2H IP address in setting s is completely different...

    Thank you for you time and advice...

    You can try ip checker from plugins green to download plugins then extensions and choose ip checker, reboot box then goto ip checker and see if it's showing a different external ip address.

    For ip address in settings, menu, information, network that's your box IP address not external so it should always stay the same.
