1. Login

Login to the Client CP using your VPNUK login username and password.

2. Go to SmartDNS Menu

Go to the ‘VPNUK Smart DNS‘ sub menu and select ‘IP Address Check-in’.

3. Register IP

The Smart DNS system will reveal your current IP address, click onto the ‘Enable’ button, that will register your current IP address on the Smart DNS service.
IMPORTANT: If you change location, or if your IP address changes you will need to check-in the new IP. For example, if you are using wi-fi, at home, and then go to an outside location and use a wi-fi hotspot, you will need to check-in that new IP address. You will then need to check-in your home IP once you return home. Each IP address you use to access the internet has to be checked in before you can access the SmartDNS service.

4. Confirmation

The Smart DNS system will confirm your IP address has been registered, it takes just a couple of minutes become enabled on the service.
