I am a college student running on the college's network. The college blocks access to different things, and so I use a VPN to get around it. I purchased some time on Hotspot Shield VPN. The main thing I would like to do is use the VPN connection to play online with my Xbox One (which is blocked by the school).
I currently use an ethernet cable to connect my desktop to the college network. I then use the built in Sharing function of windows to share the VPN connection with a wireless USB adapter that is set to AP mode. I then connect my Xbox One to said connection. I know it is a fairly poor setup, but I don't have much to work with.
The Xbox One can connect to Xbox Live, but when trying to join parties to chat with friends, or searching for games, it says that network settings are blocking these options. I test "Multiplayer Connection" using the built in tester on the Xbox One and it throws an error saying I need to open a UDP port. Is that even possible when I am virtually providing the connection? If so how would I do it? Or is this more likely a problem with the VPN itself?
Any help or knowledge would be much appreciated! Thanks.
