    Default Server as vpn router.

    I've got a server in use 24/7. I use for plex and nzbs, it's Windows 7. It uses open vpn to contact the web and is accessible via local network.
    My question is can I route my smart t.v. through it to use the vpn, the t.v. has limited options, Dns and ip settings.
    Thanks
    Ted

    Run your wife a nice hot bath, light some candles & pour some wine. Then you've at least 40 mins on the xbox plus a clean wife.

    What operating system you running? Is the CPU ever stressed or is it just sat there idling?

    Win 7, x2 xenon quad core cpus . Plex will take them up to 80 ish when there are 5 or 6 sharing.

    It is only when the tv needs to use vpn as my isp is going to start blocking iptv streams apparently.
    I thought about getting a cheap ww-drt compatible router and use that instead, if the server is a pain to do.

    I've set up a proxy server on my media server to route my fire tv through and works a treat. I think I have used cproxy but can check tomorrow. In kodi I have set a proxy but if your tv doesn't have that option I'm not sure but you may be able to use the local server IP as the gateway, will have to check.
