VI. Website can not be accessed
1. Clean up the DNS cache +
If you can not access foreign Internet sites, in many cases it is because that the system has got the wrong DNS resolution results and cached them down. In this case, some sites can be accessed while other similar sites cannot. Because both the operating system and Chrome browser perform DNS caching, cleaning up the DNS cache requires clearing both the operating system and the browser's cache at the same time.
A.Clean up the operating system DNS cache
Apple OS X
Please refer to https://support.apple.com/en/HT202516
Use the command ipconfig / flushdns. Different versions of Windows operations are basically the same, with Windows 7 as an example:
Click the "Start" button. In the search box, type the command prompt. In the results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password or provide a confirmation. At the command prompt, type ipconfig / flushdns Google Chrome caches --- please refer to the following steps to clear:
Start your browser and enter chrome://net-internals/#dns in the address bar Click "Clear host cache" on the page Enter chrome://net-internals/#sockets in the address bar Click Close idle sockets and then click Flush socket pools.
2. Clean the browser cache +
Clearing the web browser cache forces the browser to load the latest version of web pages and programs that users access.
The operation of deleting Web Cache in Internet Explorer (IE) varies with IE and Windows versions. In IE, select "Tools" ("Internet Options" or "Security"), then select "Browsing History" to find the option to delete the cached Web page.
In the Firefox menu bar, click "Tools" Click "Options" Under the Advanced options, click the Internet tab Clear the cache under Cached Web Content
Click the Customize icon on the browser toolbar Select "Settings", then select "Show Advanced Settings" Under "Privacy," select "Clear browsing data." In the dialog box that appears, select the checkbox for the type of information you want to delete. Use the top menu to select the amount of data to delete. Select "All" to delete all the information. Click "Clear browsing data"
**Can I use Butterfly to watch Netflix, Amazon Prime or Hulu?
The Butterfly smartly chooses the IP address to access to the network, so the IP is changeable, which makes it difficult to get access to such content due to the strict proxy detection from those companies. You may use Full mode to select different regions to watch Netflix or Hulu but it is not 100% garuanteed. We will try to solve this issue in the next upgrades.
V. 3 Modes to Choose From
Intelligent Mode +
The system will automatically choose the best line according to the website visited. For example, it will use server in China if you are visiting Youku and change to non-China server if you’re visiting YouTube. It is the recommended selection.
Full Mode +
It can fix the line area, all traffic is forwarded through the VPN, which may affect the speed. If you want to set a single area ip distribution, follow these steps:
After connecting btfly, and login http://192.168.154.1, click on the Advanced Settings below Click on the VPN in the list above, select the Full Mode, and the specified area you need Currently available lines are: China, Taiwan, United States, Europe and Japan.
This product is mainly for business people, so there is no special design for the game speed optimization. We do not guarantee the gaming speed.
TOR Mode +
All traffic is conducted anonymously through the TOR network.
