There is quite a lot of different error message on Netflix, but M7111-1331-5059 is one of the most common error messages. This is an error telling you that you are using an unblocker or a proxy server, and Netflix will not let you stream their content because of this. So, what can you do?
What to do about error M7111-1331-5059?
Are you using a proxy server, a VPN, or an unblocker service (SmartDNS)?
If your answer to this question is yes, you already know the cause of the problem. It is not necessarily fair, especially if you use a VPN to secure your online connection, only to discover that Netflix blocks you when your only desire is to stay safe online.
What can you do about this?
- You have to disconnect from the VPN server you are connected to, or turn of the DNS servers or the proxy server you use. You should then be able to watch Netflix right away.
- If you do not want to risk your security watching Netflix, you will have to use a VPN service that works with Netflix. No service works in all nations, but the best VPN providers working with Netflix can be found in this article.
These are the main solutions to the error if you know that you are using a proxy server, a VPN or an unblocker service.
Do you get the error, even if you do not use a proxy server, a VPN, or an unblocker?
Do you get the error message, and you have no clue why you get it? It might happen that Netflix blocks certain IP addresses, but if you just use your private IP address, it shouldn’t happen. You can contact the Netflix support, but I would suggest that you start by checking your IP address. Is this your actual IP address, or does it show another location? If it does, it might be that you are surfing the internet using a proxy server or a VPN connection, without really knowing about it.
If that is so, ask your system administrator, the one responsible for the Internet connection you are using, and they will for sure be able to help you.
