This tutorial will show you how to set up MediaStreamer on Windows.
Register your IP address
Sign in to your account using your email address and password.
Go to the DNS Settings tab after signing in.
Enter your IP address, select Automatically register my IP address (this is recommended so that you don’t have to manually register your IP again even if it changes), and then click Register my IP address.
Open your network connections window
Click the Start button and type “ncpa.cpl“, or press the Windows key + R on your keyboard and type “ncpa.cpl“.
When you see ncpa.cpl in the listed programs, click on it to open the Network Connections window.
Access your network connection properties
In the Network Connections window, select your active Internet connection. If you are connected via a LAN cable, select the appropriate Local Area Connection. If you are connected via Wi-Fi, select the appropriate Wi-Fi connection.
Right-click on the icon and select Properties.
In the Local Area Connection/Wi-Fi Properties menu, double-click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4). Make sure that Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) is unchecked.
Change your DNS settings
In the “General” tab, select Use the following DNS server addresses and enter ExpressVPN’s MediaStreamer DNS address (you only need to enter the Preferred DNS server address).
To find ExpressVPN’s MediaStreamer DNS address, sign in to the ExpressVPN website, click on Set Up ExpressVPN on the Active Subscriptions page, then copy the address under the MediaStreamer section.
Click OK, and then OK again.
Tip: Please take a note of your original DNS server settings in case you are required to revert to those settings.
