Open to making the best VPN client out there

4 letzte Woche Neu

Vorteile:

OpenVPN has a user-friendly interface, that is easy to navigate. In just a few minutes, anyone can get started with setting up a virtual private network even without much computer skills, because it is compatible with various operating systems such as Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android. Most importantly, it is open-source, meaning that it has the largest amount of documentation and tutorials online if you are ever facing troubles.

Nachteile:

The configuration can become tedious if you are not used to networking lingo and words, once it's set up though, you can set it and forget it. In my opinion, some default settings should be in place for newer users that aren't experienced. Such as disabling one's internet connection if the VPN fails to work (kill switch).

OpenVPN - Simple, minimal VPN client for large teams

5 letzten Monat Neu

Kommentare: OpenVPN Connect is super easy to use. A simple toggle turns the VPN on or off. My company uses it to have double-layer encryption for all of our services while we work remotely. The only notifications are for necessary notifications, no annoying pop-ups, upsells, etc. Very minimal, clean interface. Straight to the point which is exactly what me and my team need. Excellent piece of software!

The simple solution we were looking for

Mi experiencia con Open VPN

5 letzte Woche Neu

Kommentare: Es una forma rápida y segura de poder conectarme a los equipos y servidores de mi organización desde mi hogar.

Vorteile:

Lo que más me gusta de Open VPN es lo fácil que es de utilizar. La utilizo en el celular y solo requiero de cargarle el archivo de configuración y una vez realizado esto, proceder a configurar mi usuario de AD y listo! Ya me encuentro conectado.

Nachteile:

Open VPN es un sofware que me hace sentir seguro. No tengo disgustos, ni quejas, cuando la utilizo.

Review of OpenVPN

5 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: Overall OpenVPN is a great tool to ensure users communication are secured and private.

Vorteile:

OpenVPN is a free VPN server which provides super security features. They include OpenSSL library together with HMAC packet authentication due to which network safety is maximum. It is easy to use, reliable and provides great community support as most of their software protocols are licensed by GNU GPL. It is open source and source code is available for modification. It supports TCP and UDP protocols on any ports which makes it extremely difficult to block. It has high 1024-bit encryption levels and supports forward secrecy.

Nachteile:

One of the disadvantages of OpenVPN is it is not compatible to few servers as OpenVPN does not support them. Due to prioritizing maximum security, encryption occurs in User's space, it affects the speed of network and increases latency. Mostly low specs devices are affected by network latency. It has numerous options thus, it can be confusing for new users to use. It is blocked by few proxy servers and is difficult to configure.

Trustworthy solution

5 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I can have a secure connection to my server, So in public areas, using free WiFi is not source of worries for me anymore.

Vorteile:

After connecting to the remote server, All connections to the Lan will be dropped. It means that It provides a real secure connection.

Nachteile:

There is only the last version which is available on the website and I can not download previous versions from openvpn.net I don't know this is the issue of software or my knowledge, but I couldn't have two concurrent connections from different devices at the same time. So I had to create two different users for two devices.

Excellent VPN Option

5 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I use OpenVPN to access my company's network when I am working remotely. This keeps me productive no matter where I am. It works great and I have literally never had an issue with it.

Vorteile:

I have used many other VPN clients before and OpenVPN is my favorite. All clients do a fine job of getting me VPN access when I need it, but OpenVPN keeps me connected while my laptop is off or asleep and it remembers my login credentials to make signing back in very quick.

Nachteile:

I really have nothing to complain about. OpenVPN is a very simple and useful VPN client. I have used it for a while with zero issues.

This is the standard for remote access

5 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I think it's a great standard that should continue to be developed.

Vorteile:

Easy to setup point to point tunnels from other openvpn routers to other openvpn routers, cross platform compatibility with apple, windows, android, and linux devices, tons of support and the gui is very simple for windows users to use as along as they can remember to open it in the right hand corner of the tray and click connect first before trying to open other network resources like remote desktop or windows file sharing.

Nachteile:

some of the windows 10 system had a bug where you had to right click and run as administrator for security issues to get the software's TAP adapter to successfully load so you could connect.

Security in the economic network.

5 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I have used this program for more than three years, although it has presented me incoherent on some occasions, I must say that it has complied with everything established, offers excellent servers to be free, with a stable and excellent speed to navigate, protect your data and stay in anonymity to prevent information theft, an excellent program for anyone.

Vorteile:

Ease of connection, diversity of servers in different countries, free, ease of use and installation, network security, identity protection, stable speed, guaranteed anonymity.

Nachteile:

Weakness in the connections, it does not offer support, the program does not notify if it is disconnected from the server, it can connect it to an unwanted server, the speed may decrease, it does not offer additional security.

Adequate VPN Server

4 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Professional use for file access and email servers.

Vorteile:

I've used this to gain access to restricted work servers for email and storage. It works about 80% of the time to allow me to access the email and files stored there. Once installed, it's pretty easy to connect on a laptop and it's automatic on a phone (most of the time).

Nachteile:

It's a little hit-or-miss, as previously stated. Every now and then, I need to manually connect my mobile device to the VPN, even though it should be automatic. It doesn't always play nicely with hotel networks so when I travel for work, I'm not always able to use the hotel wireless to check emails or access files.

Secure and easy to use

5 vor 10 Monaten

Kommentare: Overall, OpenVPN Access Server is easy to use, easy to set up. They have a nice app for all the platforms. It does the job well for our main use case which is to limit access to our APIs to only those who are connected to the VPN.

Vorteile:

Simple user interface. Easy to set up and connect OpenVPN Access Server to enable two-factor authentication with Google Authenticator. The client-side is also intuitive with apps for mobile devices (iOS and Android) and for the desktop (windows and mac).

Nachteile:

Can sometimes be hard to debug connection errors. On the client-side, if the connection error fails because of a password or expiration or wrong password, the error message does not reflect this. This could possibly be for security protection, but it can be a bit confusing to the end user.

Worried about who is monitoring your data. Then make your own VPN. Super fast super easy. Openvpn is great they have the software for every end of every platform. Very easy to install and very good help section.

Nachteile:

There really is no cons. They put you in control of your data. It doesn't get much more secure than that. No worrying if your data is being mined and sold.

Very secure VPN

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall I have a very positive experience with OpenVPN, I have not had any technical issue or noticed any bugs since onboarding with them.

Vorteile:

Working with proprietary data means that we need the best security possible to access our network - OpenVPN makes this extremely easy to do this without worrying about network security when we are not in the office.

Nachteile:

Setup can be improved to be more simple but I understand the amount of security it must take to make sure it runs properly - our IT team was able to help us through this.

OpenVPN Access Server - Depends On User

4 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Provides excellent service especially per cost.

Vorteile:

Easy enough for most users to understand how to set up. Pretty secure. Able to use in most settings.

Nachteile:

Users without a stronger technical background will find managing the software difficult. Can be even more complicated in enterprise environments. In event of reconfiguration, a user of stronger technical background is needed.
