Put OpenAtv in slot two of the SF8008 last night just to try it out.
It installed fine & the receiver rebooted but it crashed during the setup process when I choose 1080 screen resolution.
Screen just went blank & no remote buttons would work.
Had to switch the receiver off at the back.
I recently set out to try & use my IpVanish Vpn on my Octagon SF8008 receiver with the latest VIX image installed.
I am a relative newcomer to Enigma2 images so I was starting from a very low base.
Officially IpVanish don't support satellite receivers with Linux Enigma2 based...
To be honest I don't really know.
I followed post no 112 here OpenVPN Setup guide for most VPN,s - Page 8
This was my post over at World of Satellite where Andy_Hazza was a fantastic help [SF8008] IpVanish Vpn ?
He stuck with me through the whole process.
I tried numerous other ways of doing it...
The reply I got from IpVanish was
"We understand that you are aiming to configure our service on the Enigma2 satellite receiver box. Unfortunately, this device runs on a customized Linux image and we are not officially supporting it. "
So I'm not going to get any help there.
I just wanted to see...
As far as I can see I followed it to the letter including using Putty to send opkg install openvpn to the receiver but still can't get it to work.
OpenVpn simply won't start on pressing the Green button on the remote.
IpVanish got back to me with the following reply.
"Thank you for getting in touch with us.
We understand that you are aiming to configure our service on the Enigma2 satellite receiver box. Unfortunately, this device runs on a customized Linux image and we are not officially supporting it...
I followed the guide & have OpenVpn in etc but as you say with the recent Vix image things might be different.
I'll see what IpVanish come back with.
I'm sure someone has succeeded in getting it to work.
Yes I followed that one Mickha to the letter.
My problem is I just can't get OpenVpn to start running ?
When I press the Green button on the remote to start it I just get a small rotating vix in the top left corner of the screen for one or two seconds & nothing else. The Red, Yellow & Blue...
I have tried a couple of guides so far but in OpenVpn when I press the green button to start I get vix in the top left of the screen for a second but nothing else.
I'm obviously making a mistake somewhere but I've no idea what I'm doing wrong.
I've asked IpVanish for help but am waiting for them...
Found it but not under the above.
It was under Setup / Network /Utilities / Open Vpn.
Current status is Stopped.
I have enabled Auto Start.
My box is running Vix 5.4.001
How do I get IpVanish Vpn into the box ?
I'm not well up in Enigma2 software, just learning as I go along.
