Hello otlanders


I'm making this thread because I haven't found anything related to my question over the internet

I have a problem while screen mirroring or screen share from my cell phone to my smart TV the problem appears when I have turned on the OPEN VPN(free net) on my cellphone. If I have it on its impossible for me to enable this feature, if I turn it off everything connect properly
I have no internet or 💰 to pay for it that's why I use OPEN VPN to get access to internet
Anyone here knows a method to make it possible to enable the feature screen share // screen mirroring while my VPN is turned on?
If you know a method please let me know

PS: My smart TV it's a LG(2018)
and my smartphone a Motorola X Android 5.1
Thanks in advance


Regards

I believe your smart tv and phone needs to be connected to the same wifi and that’s why it doesnt work when your vpn is on

No, but your phone is connected to the WiFi. If you turned your WiFi off, it wouldn't connect to your smart TV either because it isn't on the same network. When you connect to a VPN, it essentially changes your network, therefore it can no longer see your smart TV.

Glad you sorted it!

Related to the VPN it's true. But I solved it using ovpn for Android that handle a sort of. Bypass
