Here’s a quick way to fix your VPN when blocked by Telstra
Using a VPN service in the current meta of the internet is quite usual. However, for various reasons, ISPs tend to block ports or limit user access and thus prevent users from utilizing a VPN. Telstra is somewhere in the middle.
They seemingly won’t block VPN usage, but they won’t help you or encourage you to set up one on their modem also. There might be a way to resolve this, though.
How to setup your VPN to work with Telstra modems
Even though Virtual Private Networks are quite usual these days, some service providers seem to limit user’s access. Based on reports from all around the internet, users are not satisfied with how Telstra modems are strict towards VPNs.
In addition, the full functionality of certain modem features requires a Platinum service package, which is ludicrous and relieves standards users of the common features. On the other hand, there seems to be a simple workaround for the problem at hand.
Namely, the only thing you should do (allegedly) is to whitelist the VPN client in the modem‘s firewall. If that doesn’t help, you can acquire a wireless router and use it to bridge the connection. After that, you can utilize the said router to create a VPN network without issues.
Some users are still having issues with that, but that’s just the current state of the service. Basically, Telstra doesn’t support VPN services, but won’t block them per se. If you know what you’re doing in regards to port forwarding, there’s a way to utilize VPN network without major issues.
With that said, we can conclude this article. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to tell us in the comments section below.
