Re: Seedbox VPS OVH

@OP I think the issue is the routing table. Check the routing table when the VPN is active, specifically the default route . I suspect it is changing the default route to the exit node of the VPN on the tun0 interface, which is why your web server will not respond to queries. The way to address thi...

I've just checked the site and the streaming video doesn't work for me either. Chances are the actual video is coming from a third party content provider and maybe some CS nodes are indeed blacklisted.

Re: Can't play anything on redbull.tv

Re: very odd event while using the VPN

@OP The question about the phone is a good one. I have visited the imageboard from the cell phone with a VPN in place, initially a different VPN and later Cryptostorm.
