I'm in Russia and can't play

Issue

I’m situated in the Russian Federation or Belarus and I can’t play BeamMP. I’ve looked at other FAQs and they do not solve my problem.

Solution

It might be that a DNS situated in Russia is blocking some IPs BeamMP needs in order to work.

  1. Change DNS Servers to CloudFlare (1.1.1.1) or Google (8.8.8.8), or another DNS provider outside of Russia.
    Cloudflare’s Guide: https://developers.cloudflare.com/1.1.1.1/setup/
    Google’s Guide: Get Started  |  Public DNS  |  Google Developers
  2. Use a VPN.
    Please make sure that
    2.1. You’re not breaking any laws or circumventing any sanctions
    2.2. You use a VPN you trust
