Setting up a VPNUK SMART DNS connection on Smart TV.

There are so many Smart TV models and manufacturers in the world that it would be impossible for us to offer a setup configuration tutorial for all of them. However, we have listed the setup process for popular TVs. Once you have your current IP registered for Smart DNS use scroll down to Part 2 for more information on how to setup your Smart TV.

For any TV that does not have a setup tutorial the configuration procedure will be very similar on all makes and models, this tutorial should be similar no matter what TV the DNS configuration is being carried out on. There are still quite a few Smart TV systems that will not work correctly on the Smart DNS service. If you are a new customer please come over to Live Help and we'll provide you with a free trial account so you can test it on your Smart TV.

Part 1. Registering your IP on the Smart DNS system.

1. Registering your IP on the SmartDNS service

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

2. Go to SmartDNS Menu

Go to the 'VPNUK Smart DNS' sub menu and select 'IP Address Check-in'.

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.

4. Confirmation

The Smart DNS system will confirm your IP address has been registered, it takes just a couple of minutes become enabled on the service.

5. Registered

The Smart DNS system will confirm your IP address has been registered, it takes just a couple of minutes become enabled on the service.

VPNUK Says:
Hello Joseph, once you have registered your current IP for our SmartDNS service you can either insert the DNS IPs directly into your Smart TV or into your router which would then enable all devices and services that pass their connection through the router to route through the SmartDNS service.
