One of the most beloved television programs in Indonesia of the last 25 years is Si Doel Schoolgirl (Si Doel Anak Sekolahan). Spanning seven seasons and 162 episodes, it is the longest-running Indonesian soap opera and the remake of a popular novel and film by the same names.

It debuted in 1994 and it’s last episode ran in June 2003. Despite changing networks several times, Si Doel Anak Sekolahan finally found a home on RCTI, where it has run since 2009.

The soap opera is enormously popular, even 15 years after its final bow. But if you are an Indonesian living or working outside of your native borders, it is nearly impossible to watch Si Doel Anak Sekolahan.

Like many large multimedia companies, RCTI has its streaming content geo-blocked so that if you are outside of Indonesia, you are not able to access most or all of the site.

Fortunately, there is a reliable workaround to this problem. By employing a virtual private network (VPN), you can safely, securely, and legally access geo-blocked content such as Si Doel Anak Sekolahan without a problem.

How does VPN technology work?

A VPN client is an app that you install on your computer, tablet, smartphone, or other Internet-capable device which has the power to open a private network between that device and a remote computer in a different location. The network is heavily encrypted with layers of security protocol so that the data that passes between the two computers is safe and cannot be stolen.

Virtual Private Network (VPN)
As it applies to streaming episodes of Si Doel Anak Sekolahan from RCTI’s website, the remote computer must be located inside Indonesia’s borders. Once the VPN is connected, you can begin making requests and navigating to RCTI’s website. Your requests will be encrypted at your end and decrypted by the remote server in Indonesia. That computer will attach your requests to a local IP address before sending them onto RCTI’s websites.

The website security will see the request originating from an IP address in Indonesia and allow the connection, giving you the ability to stream episodes of Si Doel Anak Sekolahan. When you request episodes, the data packets will first download to the remote server, where they will be then encrypted and sent through the private network back to your Internet-capable device. It will decrypt them.

This makes them available for you to view at any time, regardless of whether you are in Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Libya, or Los Angeles.

Step-by-Step Guide for Watching Si Doel Anak Sekolahan via VPN

  1. Research VPNs online to find one that fits your budget and other requirements. Ensure that this VPN has available servers in Indonesia.
  2. Download and install the VPN client onto your chosen Internet-capable device.
  3. Open a new connection and connect to a VPN server in Indonesia.
  4. Ensure the connection is secure by checking that the new IP address is originated in Indonesia. You can do this by using the “What’s my IP Address?” website or app.
  5. Navigate to RCTI’s website and begin streaming episodes of Si Doel Anak Sekolahan.
