David from Burnsville, North Carolina

David has a son who is serving overseas and wants to watch Disney+ via VPN. But the VPN is really slow. Are there alternatives? And is it legal? Leo says that it is perfectly legal, but streaming services discourage the practice because a VPN can slow things down a lot.  But Leo has tried VPN streaming all over the world and it works just fine. Leo recommends trying ExpressVPN. They are a sponsor and have been very consistent in their speeds. Tunnel Bear is another.

Brett from Fort Worth, Texas

Brett has moved to ExpressVPN, but he's having issues surfing to his own IP. It worked fine with his old VPN, but not ExpressVPN (who is a sponsor of the TWiT Network). What can he do? Leo says to check your router settings. It may be that in your devices, there could be a security issue that's blocking it. Leo does that with his network for his NAS. Leo also says that Brett's problem may be due to his previous VPN being less secure.
