[colug-432] IPv6 Tunnels blocked by Netflix

Have you tried any "smart DNS" solutions. I am currently testing out
some solutions myself for Netflix when abroad. I hate that my own
OpenVPN I built won't allow me to connect to Netflix even at my own
house. I had to kill my VPN at the router, and move it to my devices.
DRM is the bane of software freedom. I'm testing out a few solutions,
but nothing with all that much success thus far. If I find something
that works I will be glad to share it with y'all

Best Regards,
