Still can't get iPlayer to work through this and I'm on a home connection now.

Is it still routing the VPN traffic via the States at the moment?

In the end I used the tried and trusted method - I used a different computer and it worked fine (no idea why it wouldn't work on my newer laptop)

I´m in Spain and Expat is working on BBC and ITV player again but NOT 4OD on Channel 4 or Youtube so still can´t watch back episodes.
That site for Channel 4 live (Live station)works perfectly though - cheers!

There is a virus that creeps in and takes over your .exe files called Vista2011.
My virus killer picked it out and traced the source - make sure you have a good malware detector too!

It may not be available to you but I can't see why not. You can now connect to all other kind of tv channels (including 4oD) from the BBC iPlayer site. On the left hand site where the BBC channels are there's a link for Other TV Channels and 4 and many others is/are there. It works very well for me.

Hello. Anyone having problems connecting to Expat Shield today (18th May, 2011). Doesn't see to want to connect at all. Many thanks.
