Route HFS through VPN
« on: November 30, 2017, 06:32:52 PM »
Is there anyway to run a VPN service only for HFS?
I'm quite curious. On the client side I can't connect via a browser VPN, but on the server side I must route all traffic through the VPN.
Is there any way to configure it to run exclusively on HFS.
I have access to a few paid services: PIA, NordVPN, ExpressVPN and IPVanish.

hamachi is the only vpn (besides hardware - cisco --) that i have tested with hfs

Traffice works through the internet via hamachi vpn ip via a pre conected group of pc
(back in the world of warcraft private server days :p )

ip of said pc run through the loopback ( address


is it possible yes, with routing and other port services that are proviced via a vpn

I don't know of your paid verison, and if they support full portforwarind with there vpn services.

Nor a setup that would work

bmartino1 is right, the VPN you should choose, needs to let you "open ports" on their service, something called "Port forwarding" (like you would need when you use eMule, torrent, or any other P2P protocol). You could find a comprehensive list here and here (you could also have a tutorial on how to build a private VPN here).

Please report back with the results of your experiments, to leave a future guide for the rest of the users (thanks!). Keep in touch if you need further help. :)
