Building your own Netflix US Tunnel

  1. Get a US-based Linux VPS box from
  2. Follow these instructions for setting up DNS & sniproxy.
    Note they are centos-focussed, I downloaded and built sniproxy from source (standard “make install”, no package built) on Debian 6 and to do that I had to build and install libev4 first.
  3. Point your netflix watching device’s DNS to the IP of your VPS.
    On windows you could use this tool, for my PS3 I like to setup the below rule on my OpenWRT router
    iptables -I PREROUTING -s LOCAL.IP.OF.PS3 -p udp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to IP.OF.VPS.BOX -t nat
    You can do this in the “Custom Rules” dialog.
