    You may consider warning people that by doing this, they are running all their traffic through Hotspot Shield’s network and therefore should remember to ensure that it’s off when they are doing things besides using Netflix.

    That’s a good point. However, with my numerous tests, the Hotspotshield VPN turns itself off after a few minutes.

    Fair enough.

    In all honesty, I find it very strange that this works. Why does Hotspot Shield offer a public IPSec server? Why do they not mention this anywhere on their site? Why do all the blogs that mention this option have different logins that all look randomly generated? Why are you getting disconnected? Is it because another user is using the same login info and it’s a paid account or what?

    I know free is very alluring, but if you want to do this regularly and have it be reliable and safe it’s worth looking into a paid VPN service like VyprVPN or something similar.

    Previously they had a dedicated iPhone/iOS page, that allowed users to generate accounts for VPN. That page was taken down, but the accounts still work. As for why it disconnects, that is unknown. But yeah, a paid solution is by far the best solution. But for free, this will have to do.

    Ahh, that makes a lot more sense. Thanks for the clarification.

    Do you have to be running the new IOS 5 beta for it to work? I have it all set up now andk can get the US Netflix catalog up on my iPad, but as soon as I start to choose a movie it gives an error message. Any tips or ideas?

    The test was made using the latest betas.

    Video mirroring option doesn’t show up. Running latest version of iOS 4 and re-downloaded netflix app. Apple tv 2nd gen had latest software. Any ideas?

    As noted, a requirement is iOS 5 beta.

    Or you can spend $5 a month and get a service like Unblock US, change the DNS setting on your Apple TV and you’ll have this, PLUS the 5.1 sound (which you can’t get via AirPlay, unfortunately)..

    I swear, I’m not a shill for Unblock US – but I’ve been using them for over 8 months now and I’ve not had a single problem, it’s been worth EVERY penny, it uses your own bandwidth and you don’t have to do anything BUT change your DNS.

    And for anyone who is interested, my US netflix account pulls Canadian when you’re connected via Canada just like the Canadian netflix account shows US titles when connected through a VPN or the Unblock US dns setting.

    Not saying this is a bad choice, but this way I can run it from my Xbox and PS3, too… AND use my iPad while watching… because who wants to sit and JUST watch tv? ;)

  • Echo-b

    Have you done this with an Ipad2. I reed everywhere that ipad 1 cant get airplay mirroring

  • Anonv2000-home

    Gary, I can only get audio to mirror not video using iPad1. I’ve read elsewhere that the app developer (Netflix) needs to enable video mirroring via AirPlay and they’ve chosen not to. How are you getting it to work?

  • Carl.

    I’d like to try this with my strong-vpn dns ips…. where do i put my dns ip numbers? .. just on the apple tv screen (and where exactly) or in the router settings somewhere?  Thanks for any help.

  • Niobe484

    heym what about US folks like me who want to watch Canadian titles from netflix (like seasons 4 – 7 of Da Vincis Inquest) using our US nwtflix account and/or our iPhones?  Is there a similar workaround?

  • Nads

    It works!!!  I did it with my iPhone 4 running on iOS5. Thank you soooooooo much!!!

    Works! Awesome! You Rock! 

  • Junts_henrie

    my only problem is that when i select air play from my iPhone, the air play mirroring does not show up..

    any advice?

  • ggg

    It used to work on my ipad. When I tried to connect it again a couple days ago, it kept giving me the msg “The VPN server did not respond”. I am just wondering what happened and how to solve it? Thanks

  • http://www.gotyacovered.ca/ Pamela

    I had the same problem when I tried today too. I triple-checked the numbers and letters, and they were all correct.  Help me please!

  • introuble
