Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

Oh right, well that's clearly a bug. I'll try and recreate it.

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

In regards to your DNS leak you might want to consider Cloudflare (1.1.1.1) for your primary DNS-see why at the following link: https://www.cloudflare.com/learning/dns/what-is-1.1.1.1/. VPN providers will often provide there own DNS server but it usually has a negative impact on performance when installed on the internet setup page of your router. Just a suggestion for the interim.

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

Hi,

I have it setup and working but my problem is when I turn the vpn on I get double Nat on the Xbox. It’s only when the vpn is on. Not sure what is causing this?

Thanks for your help

Luke.

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

Hi Luke, that's down to the VPN, they may block ports that are required for an Open NAT. May be worth looking for a gaming VPN or asking them if they can unblock ports on servers your account uses.

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

That should be fixed in 3.0. Meanwhile you can change the DNS on the router to the VPN DNS or use a VPN Client if using for the PC.

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

I have a subscription to HideMyAss vpn and using that for my Hybrid VPN connection.  The only connections I have to Hybrid VPN is 2 PS4's.  When the VPN is on and says connected I can not access any games on the PS4.  When I turn the VPN off I have no issue connecting to games.  Please help !!!

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

Does it occur on all games you're playing? Are you using the Geo-Filter at the same time?

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

Has anyone got IPVanish VPN to work with the XR500?
