How to fix Netflix Proxy Error
Last Updated 8 years ago

Why I get the "proxy" error?

Since 03 March 2016 Netflix begun enforcing geo-location restrictions on their video streams.
The "proxy error" occurs when you attempt to play a video from a country where that video is not normally available.

Does Dns-trick still support Netflix?

Yes we do! But if you get the proxy error you need to block original ip addresses of Netflix so all requests will be forwarded to our proxy server.

Ok...so how do I do that?

Most devices require some static routes to be added into your router, so they prevent Netflix from accessing Google DNS and their own content delivery network directly. This forces the Netflix app to use our proxy servers instead.

Following the list of ip address you need to block into your router:

IP: 8.8.8.8
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.255 or /32
Gateway: (Your router ip address, e.g. 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1)

IP: 8.8.4.4
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.255 or /32
Gateway: (Your router ip address, e.g. 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1)

IP: 23.246.0.0
Subnet Mask: 255.255.192.0 or /18
IP range: 23.246.0.1 - 23.246.63.254 (if you don't have the Subnet Mask field)
