Looking For Excellent VPN Software.

I spend quite a bit of time in hotels so I am looking for VPN software that is fast and will connect to a trusted secure host server with a reliable reputation. I tried HotSpotVPN and found that it worked very well. However, I discontinued with HotSpotVPN because they have filters that block various websites that they feel are unnecessary for a business computer. My laptop in not a business computer but my own personal laptop. I also tried WiFi Guardian 2009 trial but discovered that it does not work with Windows 7 yet. Anyone with suggestions? I prefer the payed for software because they are usually ad free and are also usually connected to a dedicated fast and secure server. Thanks!

Here is more information on setting up a vpn on a Windows 7 machine: Set up a remote connection to your workplace using VPN.

If you are looking for compatible software I suggest you search at the Windows 7 compatibility center and compare based on your needs: Windows 7 Compatibility Center home.

Cheers,

Thanks for the info but I'm looking more for a vpn that will provide a secure tunnel to surf the web while using a public hotspot. These other vpn services seem more tuned towards virtual private networks between two or more computers.

I was reading a website where it is possible to use a vpn such as OpenVPN to connect to a home router that supports a vpn client. Anyone know how well this works?

Yes! This is what I am looking for. The website doesn't say it is Windows 7 compatible, but I will try the 7 day free trial and see if it works. They do keep logs of user activity, but I assume that being a security company they can be trusted. Thanks!

I would suggest also checking out a VPN service called "It's Hidden."
They offer both free and paid accounts. I've only tried the free version and it definitely works with W7, as I've used it on my W7 system. Not bad for a free service. I don't think it works for torrents however.

I use OpenVPN, in combination with an IPCop firewall at my house.
