Insecure connection website

One reason I’m thinking of using the VPN you have is I’ll be able to ask you for help if I need it, LOL!

Can I use more than one computer with one VPN subscription?

Yes you can hook all of your computers up to one subscription and your cell phones. It is handy when you are out and about and using an unsecured network. You just put on your VPN and it tunnels you through the network for security reasons. Also you can pick any country you want, Sometimes people like Netflix will block you if you use a VPN for something like Germany and try to get content from that country but usually you can find a server that works around that problem.

Sorry, I have so many questions!
Once I have the VPN, and I try to subscribe to something pretending to be in a different location, what about my address and credit card address? Signing up for NESN, for instance, they’ll want my address and credit card. I might be able to fake an address on its own, but I can’t fake the address attached to my credit card.

Well Rick does NESN allow you to sign up for their service if you only live in a specific area or does it only allow you to watch it from a specific area? I think they would be happy to sell you a subscription but only allow you to watch it when you are in their area.

So how the VPN would work is you would already have your User and Password to sign in. You find a server in the area (Make sure the VPN service has a server in the area you are looking at, Does NESN serve the New Jersey Or New York area also?) You connect to a server in the area and then type in your web browser the site for NESN and sign in. Now some sites will block VPN’s so you will need to try NESN and if it doesn’t work try another Server in the same area. The way it works is they block the IP addresses from some servers but not other servers. But hopefully NESN doesn’t block them.

I will be getting a VPN when I surface from some work I’m doing, so I can test it on the onhockey website as well as trying to subscribe to NESN from California. I’ll let you know my results!
Question: you said below that the onhockey website was whako before using the VPN but worked fine with the VPN. What about a VPN would eliminate the virus warnings and other pop ups and sketchy crap?
Thanks,
Rick

A VPN filters all of that out Rick with their security on their servers. So what you are doing is logging onto their server in say New York and it is like being on their network. It is called tunneling but just think of it as being part of their network which gives you an extra layer of security.

Now remember when you log into their server in New York, some internet sites will try to block that server. What happens is the server in New York is given a block of IP’s and the internet site feels that block of IP’s, for whatever reason, is causing them trouble so they will block that IP. The way around that is to use a different server. Eventually you will find one that they haven’t blocked. Also you can contact your VPN service and tell them your problem and they will help you get around the block.

Edit: One more thing Rick. Put the VPN on your computers and cell phones. If you are in a public place and need internet you can first log onto your VPN and then hook to the public internet. That will keep someone from hacking you if there is someone trying to steal information from you.
