Using VPN to hide country

Postby samwardill » Tue Dec 31, 2013 11:12 pm

I am hoping to use the VPN service on my TS119 to hide my country of origin. For example my TS119 is in the UK and I want to VPN to it when travelling outside UK to be able to use BBC iPlayer which is only accessible from a UK IP. Similarly I may send a TS119 to a relative in the States so that I can access **. Is this possible?

Almost any VPN configuration is possible on your NAS, however your desired configuration will require manual configuration using scripts and custom configuration files. Your NAS already has the binaries necessary to provide both PPTP (insecure/depreciated) and/or OpenVPN VPN connections. Using VPN's to circumvent BBC's GeoIP restrctions (put in place to comply with British Copyright Laws, and Content Licence restrictions is not (IMHO) something that belongs in this Forum system, so I am locking this thread going forward.

Please discuss the legal and illegal uses of VPN's with your VPN provider, or use Google to find suitable instructions to this task. I personally have no issue with accessing BBC content outside of the UK, but I am not prepared to participate in such a discussion in this Forum. Please take this discussion elsewhere, regardless of your opinion of British and American Copyright Laws, or the British Broadcasting Corporations's GeoIP Restrictions put in place to comply with those laws.

Using the QNAP NAS Community Forum to discuss this could open QNAP to potential litigation, so such discussion simply can not be tolerated here. I am not asking you to change your opinions or goals, I am simply asking you to discuss this elsewhere.
