Pros: OpenVPN is ideal for people who want to keep their networks safe and secure from prying eyes and hackers. I have tried many different VPN and for my OpenVPN beats them all, in functionality and in cost.

Cons: Sometimes it can take a while for you to find the best IP address and it can also slow down a bit your navigation but you will be completely secure.

Pros: nice reliable tool providing high security comparing to others, the tool has nice GUI and, IMHO, offer a decent support for Windows.

Cons: In my opinion, the tool does not 100% compatible with working with proxies (might be more protocol related), in addition, the configuration is less user friendly as expected from GUI.

Pros: It is a great free VPN software that can be used to create a call back VPN. Often found very useful for customers that do not have VPN software that allows us to create a secure tunnel back into our environment while providing remote management securely.

Pros: Like other reviewers have said, the set up is a bit difficult at first but once you get through that, the service itself is fast, secure, and the connection itself is reliable. It rarely drops for me.

Cons: The set up made me struggle. I am a pretty average software user, I'm not too much of a computer whiz so I don't appreciate when the set up is difficult... the UI is also outdated but this is not a major problem for me.

Free and secure.
