Vpn is a small software that you connect to before using skype or loading up pages thats are blocked.

There are loads out there. just do a google seacrh for vpn.

The one i use is Witopia. http://witopia.net/

$40 for the year and skype and all blocked pages open up

also use personalvpn from Witopia.
by far the best value and good unless you want to watch BBC/Ch4 etc in which case you need a different one which will give you a British IP address.

I use these guys:

http://www.intl-alliance.com/store/i...products_id=64

Don't know if they are the best value, but it gives you a UK IP Address and hence you can use iPlayer etc etc.

Really? When I sorted it out (which i'll grant you was much earlier this year) did it without an existing UK IP Address.....

Default Re: VPN

Anyone know of one that will let me watch BBC iPlayer then?

I thought I had my TV issues sussed - got logged in to my sister's Sky Player, but that's now saying that since my IP Address is abroad, that I can't access it. I'm assuming a VPN getting me a UK IP address would work for that, too?

I've googled and found www.vpngates.com - does anyone know if this one would work? Any experience of this one? Its $120 a year.

Cheers
