Part II. Change your XBOX DNS addresses
This has to be done only once.
It is important to save your original DNS settings before making any changes. You might need them in case you will want to switch back to your original settings.
Press on “Settings” button on your XBOX ONE Controler (3).
Click “Settings” (4).
Go to “Network” (5).
Go to “Advanced Settings” (6).
Select “DNS Settings” (7).
Select “Manual” (8).
Enter CactusVPN primary DNS Server address (9). You can find them in Settings -> DNS Servers in Your Account on our website. Press “Enter” (10).
Choose Secondary DNS Server and enter CactusVPN secondary DNS Server address (11) (follow step 7 to find it). Click “Enter” again (12).
After that your XBOX ONE will check if your connection works fine.
If everything is set good you will receive this message. Select “Continue” (13).
Now you have to change your Location. If your Location is already set skip the tutorial to the last step.
Go again to your XBOX ONE Settings, like in the step 1 and 2.
Go to “System” (14).
Go to “Language and location” (15).
Select English from “Languages” (16). Go to “Location” and select it (17).
A list of locations will appear. Select United States or United Kingdom depending on which content you want to access (18).
Go to “Restart now” (19) and select it. Your console will restart, you will have to do this just once.
