    Default IPTV service blocked by communal WIFI

    HI, I tried to get an IPTV service running for a friend but it seems their communal wifi may be blocking the url or stream somehow..
    Is there a way around the block at all?
    I can't get access to the router, would it be simple as a VPN type of fix..
    it's in a retirement home and I would say not many use the wifi but it won't let me access XCIPTV app through it..
    help on this would be very much appreciated.
    cheers

    Have you tried a vpn?
    If you use a vpn the traffic cant be seen by the isp so theres nothing they can block or at least thats my understanding of vpn

    I know when BT were blocking the 3pm kickoffs we just flicked on the vpn and we had 3pm's back.

    yep, I am hoping this will be the answer but VPns tend to slow down things, which one do you use please?

    I use PIA, not free but I like it and they have a firestick guide: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    You could even try just changing your DNS, it depends how and what they are blocking. A decent VPN service shouldn't slow the connection down by much.

    I use Nord when necessary although not had to for ages. I signed up to their three year plan via Quidco. They usually have deals on.

    I don't know what OPENVPN is, but this is on the website.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Configuration Guides:

    We offer several sets of configuration files for OpenVPN. The files are different in how they connect and/or the strength of the security they use. These files can be found here on our [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] under the “Advanced OpenVPN SSL Usage Guides” and “Advanced OpenVPN SSL Restrictive Configurations”. Alternatively, you can click on the name of the config files below to download the files.
    Connecting:

    When connecting using OpenVPN or PIA we provide you the option to connect over TCP or UDP ports. However, TCP ports are often less restricted than UDP ports, and this can allow for connections on networks like your University or workplace to be more successful (but not guaranteed). In addition, using an IP address (212.103.49.171) instead of the server name (us-california.privateinternetaccess.com) can allow you to connect successfully where DNS is being blocked or modified by your network.
    Configuration Files:

    The differences between each set of config files is detailed below.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] -- These files connect over UDP port 1198 with AES-128-CBC+SHA1, using the server name to connect.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] -- These files connect over UDP port 1198 with AES-128-CBC+SHA1, and connect via an IP address instead of the server name.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] -- These files connect over UDP port 1197 with AES-256-CBC+SHA256, using the server name to connect.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] -- These files connect over TCP port 502 with AES-128-CBC+SHA1, using the server name to connect.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] -- These files connect over TCP port 501 with AES-256-CBC+SHA256, using the server name to connect.
    Legacy Configuration Files:

    We also have the following legacy configuration files available, using alternate ports, encryption methods and certificates.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] -- These files connect over UDP port 8080 with BF-CBC+SHA1 and connect via an IP address instead of the server name.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] -- These files connect over TCP port 443 with BF-CBC+SHA1 and connect via an IP address instead of the server name.

    Thanks to BigBrand
