    I heard about Hotspot Shield so I set it up on my iphone according to the steps on their site. I want to use it with the NBA League Pass app because it only works inside the US - when outside of the US it will block all the games. So I set the Hotspot Shield up and I activate the VPN or whatever it's called, but the app still sees I'm in Denmark... Is it because the Hotspot Shield doesn't work, or is it because the app itself asks permission to check my location on startup?

    Also, I have a question regarding the setup.. Below where you type in the account password it says "secret". On the setup guide on HotspotShield they have written "password" here. Does this mean I should also write the word "password" or do they mean that I should ALSO write in my actual account password here (if that's the case I've written it two times in a row, because you also have to type in your actual password in the box above).


    This is the site I got it from: http://hotspotshield.com/clientless/iphone/get_started.php

    "the L2TP-VPN server did not respond,try reconnecting,if the problem continues,verify your settings or contact administrator

    edit-- just try and change secret to "password" and works!!

    yeah I get the VPN logo and it says its connected. But when I open the nba app I have to let it see my location. After doing this I just get the message that I cannot watch games outside of the US. And when I go to the games section it says "Blackout" and "Denmark", so it knows my country..

    If I dont let it determine my location it's actually the same thing, and it still says Denmark.

    Do you have the league pass app working outside of the US??
