This page will guide you through to set up our Smart DNS service, MyTelly on a Linux (Ubuntu) machine. While this instructions are based on a Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus interface, the principal should be similar to most Linux distribution.
If you would like to set up the service via Terminal, kindly refer our instructions here:

Take note of the fastest DNS servers address that appears on screen.
Step 2: MyTelly Configuration on Linux (Ubuntu)
Next, click at the Wireless or Ethernet logo and choose Edit Connections.
Select your Wireless or Ethernet network if you’re computer is hardwired and choose Edit.
In the network settings, select IPv4 Settings and change the settings as below:
Method: Automatic (DHCP) addresses only
DNS Servers: Enter the DNS server addresses that appeared on your browser earlier
You will need to reconnect your network for the settings to take affect. Alternatively, you can also reboot your computer.
To reconnect, select your Wireless/Ethernet logo and click on Enable Networking to disable the network momentarily.
You will see the following message on your screen which indicates that you’ve disconnected from your network.
Next, click on your Wireless/Ethernet logo once again and choose Enable Networking to restart it again.
You will see the following message on your screen which indicates that you’ve connected to your network.
Step 3: MyTelly IP Registration on Network (Completion)
Next, head back to the MyTelly Setup page.
Scroll down and click on Register This Address. This will register your IP address and also test your DNS setup and indicate whether you have changed the DNS settings correctly.
You will get Your DNS is configured correctly! Enjoy! message on your screen if your DNS has been set successfully in our system.
Note: you will not have to do it again unless your IP address changes. Also, any device on the same network will be able to use the service as long as you’ve set our DNS in their settings.
Now that you have setup and registered your system you can go ahead and access the TV sites that can be accessed with the service!
Unfortunately it doesn’t always go to plan!
