Freedome blocks Fritzbox Router
I found out that Freedome when being activated stopps any activity of my Fritzbox router and doesn't even allow to enter into its software.
Nevertheless I found the following comment in this forum in German language from the year 2015 "Freedome läuft ohne Probleme mit die Fritzbox, daher muss keine Änderung in die Einstellungen vorgenommen werden."
Has there been any change since then? I don't finde any possibility to aplly any change in Freedomes's settings to prevent blocking a website.
I'd be glad to get assistance, in English or in German.
May I ask you disable the kill-switch from F-Secure Freedome Settings and check your router again.
Kill switch feature has been implemented in Freedome for Windows, Mac, Android. For Windows, Mac, Android:
1. Open Freedome and turn OFF
2. Go to Settings
3. You'll see "use automatic killswitch to cut off internet connection if the VPN connection is disrupted"
4. Untick the box to enable automatic killswitch
5. Turn Freedome ON and test again.
iOS platform has a built-in killswitch function. Only other platforms need to be implemented separately.
Thank you for tying out the given steps, I found this similar thread for the same issue. We would suggest you to try re-configure your Fritzbox Router while Freedome OFF mode,
1. Turn Freedome OFF.
2. Re-configure the Fritzbox Router.
3. Turn Freedome ON.
If you issue remain, please provide us the model number of Fritzbox Router. So it will help us to check with backend team.
Based on your model of router, as I found some article about some operating modes of the FRITZ!Box do not support VPN connections.
You cannot access the internet over a VPN connection from a smartphone or computer with the FRITZ!VPN software. However, you may still be able to access the FRITZ!Box user interface or devices in the home network. Simply proceed as described Click here and try the 3rd steps.
If issue remain, may I ask you try contact the router manufacturer company to check whether your model of router support VPN or how to enable the feature on your model of your router.
Thats easy ;-)
The Freedome DNS-Service cannot resolve fritz.box to its IP-adress
192.168.178.1 (default). By directly typing the iP-number in your browser
or writing it in your hosts file should solve this problem.
Be sure to activate ipv6-protocol because Freedome needs it und manage
to give Fritzbox access to IPV6 DNS-Server.
P.S.: I have no problems using freedome with my 7490 Fritzbox using
default T-online settings
