Title: Tooway not a UK IP address
Post by welshbarn on Oct 6th, 2008 at 5:26pm
I am using Tooway in the Uk and have just realised that my IP address is not picked up as being in the UK. I guess that this is due to the hub being in Turin or whereever.
This does mean that I am unable to access certain BBC webpages, as the BBC restricts their use to people in the UK.
I think that means it would also prevent me watching live football matches etc that are restricted to the UK.
Is there a way around this or is it just something you all know about and accept?
I have been told I can use Anonymiser and that it might then let me through, but I don't know if using a proxy server will cause problems or slow down the already rather delayed system.
Any ideas?

Try using an public DNS server that is locating in UK. So, remove the configuration of DNS server from Obtain Automatically and put one that you know that is from UK service provider.

This can be an work around method.
