Their lifetime account is genuinely that original price and hasn't changed since I joined back in February. I can confirm there is a lot of great content, both advanced and beginner level. Lots of technical, up to date stuff to keep you clued up. Lynda is alright but I find their tutorials pretty basic sometimes

RA4W VPN: Lifetime Subscription @ cult of mac $19.99 (£15)

What you probably should do first is check your ip address with something like:
iplocation.net/fin…ess.
This dould give you your real ip address and approximate location.
Then start up the vpn, choose a country, in the case of this one you should wait until the facility gives "connected (ip-anonymous)"
This may take a few minutes.
Then check your ip address, it should give another ip and a location in the country of choice.
If it doesn't then wait or use another connection.
Don't run anyrhing sensitive until you get the VPN to connect.
FWIW, dns seems to be resolved locally,

Thanks OP. That should suffice for my purposes

This is quite a good review of VPNs with some explanation of why a normal person might need one. (RA4W is not included)

Your logic is ridiculous you do not trade your freedoms for security. … Your logic is ridiculous you do not trade your freedoms for security. Maybe we do have something to hide but its ours to hide.



This is kinda exactly what is wrong with society. People have too many rights over police officers so police cannot search them willingly. What if a person refused to be searched had a knife and hurt someone close to you?

StonedSte

If you have nothing to hide you would willingly allow him to do his pat … If you have nothing to hide you would willingly allow him to do his pat down search (you wouldn't be 'strip' searched unless you was arrested) because the next person might be carrying a knife/gun/bomb. Anyway VPNs are 'mainly' used to circumvent ISP lock outs of illegal movie/tv/music streaming/download sites.


Not really to be honest, unless the policeman has good reason to believe I have something i shouldn't, I would prefer he didn't come anywhere near me. Nobody has agreed to allow governments to "pat search". Unless there is a very good reason to suspect I am up to no good, I would prefer my internet habits remain unknown.

Ahhh.. are we really discussing the most unreliable vpn provider, Purevpn here. I highly under rate this purevpn because of too many disconnection and connectivity issues. Half of my day went struggling just to bloody connect it. We have many trusted providers out there hidemyass.com/vpn…07/

You have to use the device in flight mode then VPN. Sounds like this isn't the problem in your case though.



Just tried it on my phone in flight mode connected to the wifi, exactly the same.

When i load netflix it loads up the U.S netflix as i can view titles not on the uk version, as soon as i try play anything it comes up with a message saying please disable your vpn or proxy.

I only paid £25 for a lifetime subscription to VPN unlimited so im assuming its not the best vpn service in the world.

I pick and American server, log into Netflix and it comes up with a message saying "It appears you're using an unblocker or a proxy, for more details click here'Seems to unblock websites that my isp try to block though so not all bad. Although how often I'll need to go on them I don't know.

Thanks Ninja14, its a bit strange this is cold as I posted on ozbargain too and people think it's unbeatable. Hola and others take your band with, no much is free in this life.....

Thanks for this, paid £23 with the 10% code! =)
Subscription Expiry Oct 10, 2045, beats having to use so called "FREE" services...where are these??
Supports a lot of counties as well, and services.
If it's lasts a year i'm happy! =)
Also just in case any one wants to try a 14 day free trial, the site is getflix.com.au

Why are people voting cold?

Are they any good?

Can I get a part refund if this doesn't work with my super 5D virtual reality bio orb in 24 years time?

Latest commentsPost comment

Not entirely clear, you have to pay the average, so you can't exactly pay what you want.

But, Crossover 14, for £6 alone would be a good deal, I've used it in the past to install Publisher on my mac and
it works really seamlessly. The rest seem pretty good too. Bargain.

If you must have apple software, then I think some of these applications are very good value

Parallels serves a purpose in the world of virtualisation, as does VmWare Fusion or VirtualBox.
CrossOver is a little different as you don't need to create a Virtual Machine to run the application

Had to uninstall Parallels due to mouse problems and now cant reinstall it. Even tech support at Paralleles cant figure it out...still waiting for tech to get back with a solution. Two hours of remote controlled assistance and they cant even instsll it.

Be warned....

I listed this deal 2 days ago and got it removed as it's not a reputable company??

I think the bundle is one of the best them have done!
Parallel is working very well on my 2013 Macbook Air i7 8GB Ram.
Installed Windows ultimate - 64 Bit

Also liking
Typinator - Good for adding keyboard shortcuts (like on iOS)
Snagit - Excellent screen capture app.
Boom- Cant believe the sound quality coming from my keyboard. Something so thin aswell!!

Yet to play with the other Apps yet!!

You may be right...the mouse is acting weird in my CAD package using Parallels so I had to uninstall Parallels tools but now it wont reinstall.

Oh well, will give me something to mess with tomorrow. Still very impressed by how it all runs.
