Thanks to HomeMediaTech, there is now a great guide for IPVanish explaining how to setup a VPN on OpenElec and get your Kodi box working flawless behind a VPN connection!

HomeMediaTech has posted a great guide for IPVanish subscribers which explains how to setup a VPN on OpenElec and then automatically make sure your VPN connects each time your OpenElec Kodi box turns on. While IPVanish does not have a dedicated add-on right now, the add-on would still require manual initialization every time you wanted to use a VPN. With this guide, you can automatically configure your VPN on OpenElec to start. Here is why that is beneficial:

  • Your Kodi connection with a VPN on OpenElec automatically starts without any manual intervention.
  • Your connection with Kodi will always be hidden and protected so you can use p2p add-ons freely without any concern.
  • Your VPN on OpenElec will have no affect on your computer internet connection, so you can still surf without being forced behind a VPN connection.
