- You can choose between general and streaming servers when choosing which server to connect to.

Configure the VPN adapter
- In addition to the first network adapter, there will be a second one with the words "Wi-Fi Direct Virtual" in the description. Now, visit the previous Network Connections page by clicking the second one.

- The VPN Proxy Master network adapter can be selected from the context menu by selecting "Properties."
- Find the "Sharing" section in the pop-up window. Select the WI-FI hotspot you previously created and select the first checkbox, "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection." Finally, press "OK."
- You've finished the setup; congratulations! Now that the hotspot Wi-Fi has been established, you can utilize your Smart TV, gaming system, or other Wi-Fi-capable devices to secure your connection and overcome geographical limitations.
