Open Embedded Linux Entertainment Center (OpenELEC) is a Linux-based operating system built as a platform to turn your computer into a Kodi media center. Follow this guide to set up PureVPN on OpenElec.
Learn how you can set up PureVPN on OpenELEC via OpenVPN and PPTP protocol to make the most of it.
Note: If you face any issue, please make sure that PPTP Pass through option is enabled on your router/modem. Moreover, you may try again by disabling the Wi-Fi router/modem firewall for the time being. If it works then allow PPTP TCP Port 1723.
OpenELEC / XMBC / KODI doesn’t offer any option to change the OpenVPN port and works on default OpenVPN port 1194.
In order to configure OpenVPN on OpenELEC / XMBC / KODI you need to modify .ovpn file and use WinSCP.
Download WinSCP from 👉 here.
Download OpenVPN files from 👉 here
Insert below command: (replace Your-OVPN-Filename.ovpn with the .ovpn file you use)
in my case it is Chicago-IL.ovpn
Click Execute and wait for few seconds and you will be connected.
You may verify your IP by using the following command:
or you may install any browser from the Program repo
Note: If you face any disconnection issue, then we recommend you to delete the auth-nocache parameter from .ovpn configuration file and then re-connect VPN, hopefully this will resolve disconnection issue.
