VanishedVPN - Setup Guide

 Start here


If you are looking to play unblocked content (like USA Netflix) on a Smart TV or media device (like AppleTV, Roku, PS4 etc), we strongly recommend purchasing one of our Invizbox mini routers. You simply plug this device into your modem / router, and then connect your smart TV or Media device to the new wireless network that will appear, and it will then be running over the VPN (USA by default, but can be changed), and you will be able to access unblocked content (like USA Netflix). We supply the device configured with you VPN credentials, ready to just plug in.


Alternatively, if you want to configure the VPN on a single device (Smartphone, PC, tablet, Mac etc), here's a guide to get you started.


We support 2 different types of VPN :

OpenVPN - This should be your first choice. Its the fastest, and most reliable VPN type. If you know what you're doing, jump in and download the config files from here or here.

L2TP - quick and simple to configure on IOS devices (iphone & iPad) & Mac

You will find the instructions and videos showing you how to configure your device in our knowledge base, (search for you device type ie 'Windows' or 'iphone' ). For each type of setup, you will need to copy and paste the username (your email) and password which you can find on your dashboard on our site. For L2TP you will also need to enter the 'shared secret' which is  happiness  

 

You can setup multiple VPN clients on your device, and switch between them. The table below shows the different servers and what they are used for. You can use either VPN type on each server.
