My example of a real VPN client
- My dear friends (all of you). The user "eGaTS" below was right. The question is: Which VPN Client Do You Use.... unfortunately none of you all seem to understand... Here, I'm giving the example of the VPN Clients I use: 1- ccproxy - you have to install it on your dedicated server) and then you need install proxifier(proxifier.com) on your PC 2- kerio -the reason I'm using is , you can install and work on it easily and best secure you have ccproxy working on socks 4 and 5.... kerio you can using on all software and one of the best software...

A VyprVPN user in Korea
- ... I've been using VyprVPN for a few months now. Before that, I was going through a SSH service with mixed results. The service is provided free with my Usenet service. So far, its been terrible. My connection speed is around 80Mbps or 4 times faster than the average cable modem connection. Going through VyprVPN, I can only hope to get around 1.5 Mbps. Many times I cant get enough speed to listen to an audio stream. The service has a really hard time connecting through most of the routers here in Korea and even back in America.

- It has a free US server and also provides a Windows client software which is easy to use. i don't need to config the settings myself. It runs with openvpn which should have better security than pptp or l2tp protocol. Their premium plans cost 9.99usd and up [after only 30 days] which gives more countries and servers to choose from. i think it's fair to use and it runs smoothly on my PC without a problem.

It's hard to find a good VPN...
- StrongVPN is not that good as it claimed. [It's OK] only in moderate usage.

Hamachi easy but limited in free mode
- LogMeIn Hamachi recently changed their license model, so now 5 clients only are possible in free mode. If you need more (up to 32) cost 22 EUR/y, 256 clients per network are 89 EUR/y. The software is rather easy to install and configure. But changes in the license model without notification keep me away from further usage of this software.

For out of country support
- I live in Iran and can't open some Web sites, so I decided to use USA based VPNs.

Do you understand the concept of Client?
- The question posed was "Which VPN Client Do You Use, and Why?" The client is a piece of software used to access the server software residing on a remote machine. Examples of server/client packages were mentioned in the article, which was titled "Free VPN Software Downloads." You three have only listed companies that offer access to their server machines for a price. That's not what this is about at all.

- I use Witopia.net. They offer PPTP (cheap) or SSL and PPTP (more expensive). Only downside is no monthly usage plans, only yearly.

- I 'd tried: HideIPVpn, It's Hidden, 12vpn and ibVPN. ibVBN seems secure.

Pure VPN, for browsing via hotspots
- None of these are for hotspot-type wifi browsing. All are for accessing a remote box. I 'play' over wifi. I don't have a corp office with Cisco concentrators, nor a file server. I play a lot and also buy online. I need security for THOSE purposes. I browse in risky wifi environments - stores, homes, hotels, restaurants, etc. VPN is needed with Ethernet also. I never had a good free VPN experience. I recommend PureVPN, [3 years now]. I DO NOT WORK FOR THEM. They are reasonable. Pure gives you both PPTP and L2TP dialers. Shared IP: 1 month: ~$6, 6 mo: ~$28. Private IP: 1 mo:~$15, 1 yr: ~$149. I use shared. Servers: GER, CAN, UK, USA. 128 bit encryption. Just my two bits - browse and research a lot.
