School WiFi blocking VPN usage

Recommended Posts

I am staying the summer at college and I only have access to the edu wifi. I have tried downloading a VPN to access Netflix, but it seems that all VPNs are blocked from usage on the WiFi. Is there a way around this? Can AirVPN get around the network's blocks or is there a different VPN I should try?
(I have tried Nord and it doesn't work on the school WiFi)

There was one user in the past with a similar thing. UDP was completely blocked for him. Your best bet could be tcp/443 or even OpenVPN over SSL on port 443 (looks like a normal HTTPS connection; no way this will be blocked).

» If you choose to create a new thread, keep in mind that we don't know your setup. Give info about it. Never forget the OpenVPN logs or, for Eddie, the support file (Logs > lifebelt icon).

» The community kindly asks you to not set up Tor exit relays when connected to AirVPN. Their IP addresses are subject to restrictions and these are relayed to all users of the affected servers.
