I am in Japan and trying to a chess my sling box. When I use a VPN tunnel to appear in the US, it works. But when I do not use the VPN it acts as if it cannot find the Slingbox (I get an error saying to make sure both my iPad and Slingbox are connected to the internet and try again). I would use the VPN but the band width is so slow, its unwatchable. Any suggestions?
