    Question Best VPN

    Seeing as my job now takes me to different countries a lot, (Germany next week, then straight to Japan for a week), what VPN software do you recomend? Was looking at openVPN.

    very impressed by it. You can run it from a USB key if you want and it will create the VPN connection when you plug it in. Supports all sorts of authentication.

    XP has a built in VPN server that'll be fine for a single user if your router supports VPN passthrough.
    Interested?

    Re: Best VPN

    Hidemyass has been the only VPN that has allowed me to have continuous access to sites like facebook and netflix in China! All my friends have now changed to HMA VPN too.

    OpenVPN or XP VPN are both good solutions.. Both are easy to setup..

    Re: Best VPN

    Personally I'd suggest using a SSL based one if you plan on jumping onto public / hotel wifi points. Many don't allow / support ipsec / l2tp or other 'pro' VPN traffic. SSL loks like any other encrypted web page to them so they're less likely to block it.

    Bit old this thread, no?

    I have been using Citrix Access Gateway (aka CAG 5 VPX) for about two years and not a single problem - totally awesome product!
