Setup Dns Wdtv

Setting up a VPNUK SMART DNS connection on WDTV.

Setting up the VPNUK Smart DNS service is simple, quick and very easy to customise to your specific requirements. In order to get started you first have to register your current IP with our system in order to gain access to the DNS service, if your ISP assign you with a dynamic IP or if it ever changes you will have to re-register the IP! Registering your IP is a quick and automated process that takes just a few seconds to do from the Client CP.

Basic Setup Instructions

1. Login to the Client CP and go to VPNUK Smart DNS from the right hand menu.
2. Register your current IP address in the permitted connection whitelist.
3. Go to the custom DNS server setting for your internet connection and enter the IP of the VPNUK Smart DNS server that you’d like to use.
4. Save the settings. (Restart your internet connection).
5. Thats It! You should now be connected to the VPNUK Smart DNS service.

Login to the Client CP using your VPNUK login username and password.

2. Go to SmartDNS Menu

3. Register IP

The Smart DNS system will reveal your current IP address, click onto the ‘Enable’ button, that will register your current IP address on the Smart DNS service.
IMPORTANT: If you change location, or if your IP address changes you will need to check-in the new IP. For example, if you are using wi-fi, at home, and then go to an outside location and use a wi-fi hotspot, you will need to check-in that new IP address. You will then need to check-in your home IP once you return home. Each IP address you use to access the internet has to be checked in before you can access the SmartDNS service.
