Hi everyone,

This offer is limited to the first 100 purchases and the offer expires Oct 16 ( or until 100 slots are purchased ). It is available for new customers only. This is billed as a once-off purchase of $26.87 USD (~ $36.76 AUD) and gives you 6 months of access. There is a free three day trial ( no payment information needed ) in order for you to test the service to see if it is right for you.

Oeck is a new type of VPN with industry-first features. We own all of our own hardware and do not use hard drives at all. Our VPN nodes are RAM only and we do not log user VPN traffic or activity. Our system is automated so that you don't need to go server surfing to find a server for channels such as Netflix, Hulu, etc. Simply connect to the VPN region closest to you and we take care of the rest. We have 30 Netflix regions available and many other streaming services.

    Am I guaranteed Netflix access to the local contents of the countries you currently have a server in?

    • Hi sh4hp,

      We actually unblock our channels differently to how other VPN services do it. We use a residential network for automatically splitting our traffic for our users. This means you can connect to Australia for your VPN region ( in order to keep your internet fast ) but automatically get Netflix from a different region ( you set this in your VPN settings page ).

      As far as guarantee goes, nobody can guarantee access to Netflix. That's not how it works unfortunately. What I can tell you though, is that we have a good system in place which has been allowing Netflix to work with minimum downtime for the last 18 months and I don't see this changing any time soon.

      Regards,
      Peter @ Oeck.

      • Right. So I have installed the app on my phone, and am still getting Au netflix through the netflix app.

        Have set the netflix to US, channel 1 on setting page through a browser. Where did I go wrong?

        Also, how do I set my router up to connect through it? I looked on the site, didn't see a router setup instruction.

        The app keeps crashing too, whenever I want to change VPN settings.

        We use a residential network for automatically splitting our traffic for our users

        Does that mean you use your customer's internet connection to route outbound traffic? (Like dodgey free browser VPN's) or have you purchased residential connections to route traffic through? (It'll be interesting how long that works for).

        • +1

          Hi M00Cow,

          We absolutely do not and will never use our customers connection to route traffic. We actually purchased residential connections from varying sources in order to achieve this. It is not perfect, but for the most part it does a good job. It has been running for around 2 years now ( including during our alpha and beta testing ) and so far seems to be working really well.

      • Last time when you offered 1 month trial, the APK listed on your portal wasn't compatible with Android TV. Is there any progress on the app for Android TV platform?

        • Hi vivmahi,

          Our app will work on most Android TV's but it is not really made for them. I would highly suggest using an OpenVPN client made specifically for Android TV. Then just use our config files to connect to our servers. However, it all depends on what you are trying to get it to do. If it is specifically for Netflix, you will be much better off going through the router instead, as you need to take additional measures to get around their blocks unfortunately.

          Regards,
          Peter @ Oeck.

          • @Oeck: Do you plan to make a proper Android TV app? I'd be interested in trying your service if you do.

            I switch to different regions between streaming services (Netflix, HULU, Amazon Prime, Disney+ etc.), and entering details into my router via OpenVPN would just be too much of a hassle each time I wanted to change a region for a specific streaming service.

            Did you have a recommendation for an OpenVPN client I could use/have a look at for Android TV?

            • @Ice009: Hi Ice009,

              We don't plan on making an Android TV specific app. However, our VPN works differently to most. We automatically unblock channels and allow you to set the location individually regardless of which VPN region you are connected to. We can look into adding more locations for various services.

              So for example, we offer 30 Netflix regions. You just need to set your Netflix region in your device profile, then connect to the VPN region you wish to connect to ( for example, Melbourne ). Netflix will then follow the rules of your setup. We can do this with various streaming services.

              You can also use any OpenVPN client you want with Oeck.

              Regards,
              Peter @ Oeck.

              • @Oeck: Sorry for the late reply. Do I have to manually change regions in the OpenVPN Android TV app each time I want to change regions? How about other regions, say I want to access France with Amazon Prime, or India with Amazon Prime, would that work with your VPN? It works with the current VPNs I have. The main reason I'm looking at different VPNs is that the main Netflix regions aren't working anymore as they've done some changes the past couple of months to block most VPN services I've been told.

                Also, what did you mean you change the Netflix region in device profile? Did you mean in a web based profile for your VPN service in your account settings?

                • @Ice009: Hi Ice009,

                  With Netflix yes, you can change it in your device profile ( the web based profile ). You can make up to 100 profiles, each with unique settings. This will allow you to set a Netflix region, but connect directly to Australia. We unblock most major services automatically.

                  As far as Amazon, you will not be able to do the same at this point in time. We do have it planned so you can set the region just like the Netflix one, but it is not available yet. You will need to connect to a USA server for USA Amazon, etc.

                  You will not need to change regions in the app itself. Just set your region in your device profile and reconnect to the VPN. It will then modify its settings to your profile settings.

                  Regards,
                  Peter @ Oeck.

      I second this, great VPN with low latency and great speeds.

      Was an express VPN advocate until they were bought out by Kape (as many other commercial VPNs out there) which raised several security concerns on my side.

      Great job from these guys!!!

  • Can this be used on a NAS?

    • Hi clot10,

      If your NAS supports an OpenVPN client, it will work. Though, depending on the power of it, you may not get the best speeds. It is best to check it first with our three day free trial before purchasing.

      Regards,
      Peter @ Oeck.

      • Thanks mate, will do

        It is a Synology NAS, if i want to generate an OVPN file, which OS would I put it under?

        • Hi clot10,

          No problem :)

          You should use the linux config - https://www.oeck.com/downloads/ovpn/#cat-linux

          I suggest downloading all of the config file versions ( encryption and protocol ) and seeing which combination works best for your device as speeds will differ based on the config. So try;

          AES-128 UDP
          AES-128 TCP
          AES -256 UDP
          AES-256 TCP

          Then try each one to see which gives you the best performance.

          Regards,
          Peter @ Oeck.

  • Do you support Wireguard?

    • Hi futaris,

      At the moment we don't. This is due to us not having 100% trust in the software as it is. Once this changes, we will add support for it. We would just like to see it put through a bit more testing first.

      Regards,
      Peter @ Oeck.

  • Does your vpn support Amazon Prime? The app usually detects that a VPN is active and won't allow me to watch contents available in other regions.

    • Hi chankaran,

      We don't 'automatically' unblock Prime at the moment like we do Netflix. That is to say, if you connect to Melbourne ( for example ), you won't automatically get US/UK/ETC Prime. However, some of our users connect to Seattle directly and are able to access Prime. Please feel free to test it out.

      Regards,
      Peter @ Oeck.

        • Hi vivmahi,

          You're welcome :)

          Yes, your router will need to be able to run an OpenVPN client on it.

      Had mullvad previously on regularly basis then tried OECK (still with them right now). Both feel similar. OECK app works better for me (had issues getting Mullvad app to connect properly (if at all.. most of the time forced to not use the app)).

  • Hi Peter @oeck, just wondering how I would use your service with my current set up that is Orbi router and satellite mesh network and Apple TV devices. Doesn’t seem to be a straight forward solution that I can see and I can’t seem to search your site for these particular questions.

    Do you have SmartDNS solutions to these particular products?
    *Just my luck to have two products that are well known to lack basic VPN functionality 😞

    Hoping you may help with some suggestions, thanks.

    • +1

      Hi harryv,

      I am not familiar with Orbi, but based on this - https://community.netgear.com/t5/Orbi/Orbi-RBK50-as-a-OpenVP... - it seems as though you can not get OpenVPN to run on it. The thread does have some information regarding what may be possible to do with your hardware ( if it is the same router ), but changing firmware is not something you should be doing unless you're comfortable.

      We don't have a smartDNS solution as a standalone product unfortunately. Our smartDNS system is built right in to the VPN itself, which makes our VPN versatile, but unless you can connect to it via OpenVPN you are out of luck.

      I'm really sorry that we are probably not a good fit for your needs at this point. However, if you have any devices you can load our apps ( or any OpenVPN client ) on, you should be able to connect to our network.

      Even with the updated firmware on the Orbi, I won't be able to tell you how it will go in terms of speed.

      If you like, you can open a support ticket and I will get Cameron to have a chat to you. He is far more experienced with different router models and potential workarounds. He would probably be the best person to speak to when it comes to Macgyvering your devices.

      Regards,
      Peter @ Oeck.

      • As I suspected, but thank you for your detailed and considered response. I’m not going to bother Cameron with the techie bit, I’ll wait until the next upgrade time and revisit then.

        Again, thx Peter @ Oeck, great info

        • Hi harryv,

          No problem at all. We hope to hear from you when you're ready :)

          Regards,
          Peter @ Oeck.

  • Two questions - what are the packages that are mentioned during signup about (watch afl, hulu etc)?

    Second question - do you allow torrenting from any source?

    • Hi shaun1800,

      The packages are there to allow you to set your preferred region for those services. Since those specific services use the same content provider, you must make a choice of which one will work and which will not. You can edit this setting at any time.

      You can torrent as much as you like on our "Torrent" region. It is optimised for torrents and P2P activity.

      Regards,
      Peter @ Oeck.
