Hi,

Which OVPN config file would be the most suitable to use on a Asus RT-AX88U router?

I am doing a bit of trouble shooting at the moment, I use the Melbourne VPN server, I have tried the linux config, android and OpenVPN config in the router

They all seem to work ok, but for Netflix no matter which region in the dashboard I use I get the netflix proxy detected, it will play sometimes for hour then proxy detected will pop up.

Hulu works great no errors.

I am wondering do any of the members using Asus routers have similar problem with netflix?

Thanks.

Hi,

I've used both linux and android configs - both work no problem.
Depending on which client you use for Netflix, there are 2 settings that seem to make all the difference.
DNSFilter (in LAN) defaults to off, but you should turn it on. It makes sure that if a client specifically asks for 8.8.8.8 (google's DNS) the router will answer for it (which will be Oeck).
The other is "Accept DNS configuration" (In the VPN client config) should be set to "Explicit", otherwise the DNS will leak.


Regards,
Cameron @ Oeck.
