    Hi Mike I had the same problem if you're using a fire stick it's actually not able to do it Amazon has your first details and your account what I did was I got it on my laptop and then I will literally send it to my TV screen now and saying that my TV is a brand new Smart TV but I think it work on most TVs that are smart I'm not an expert but that's the way I'm doing it at the moment and it worked absolutely perfect and I use surfshark contact me if you need any more help

    Trying to get a little help here on VPN'g into my Fritz!Box 7530 from an Android phone.

    I've opened 4 ports on my Fritz box (router) in an effort to control a home VIX zGemma7 box remotely from my phone. Everything works fine! I am able to play live and recorded programs from my zGemma remotely on my phone.

    But somewhere along the way, I've heard that opening ports in my router is not a good idea. So I've set up VPN on my FritzBox router, and also setup VPN on my phone. The two are talking, the communication is good, and control of my zGemma box from my phone works fine.

    So here's where my ignorance about VPN etc becomes obvious! If I close the 4 ports on the router, and with VPN connected, the access from my remote phone to the zGemma no longer works.

    So what purpose does the VPN connection serve?

    If I have to leave the router ports open, won't hackers be able to poke into my LAN and home devices?

    I'd appreciate your help! Thanks!
