VPN is virtual private NETWORK.

Maybe you are thinking of VPS?

No, you can use VPN to do things besides access the internal side of a network.

VPS is another name I guess. I am not too technical. Thanks for the suggestion. Cheers.

I have been using Road Warrior VPN.com for a while now.

They have nice fast service, and they have VPN servers in the USA.

Actually jtaylor1 a VPS is not the same as a VPN. While VPN stands for Virtual Private Network VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. They accomplish different goals.

jtaylor1 I saw that Road Warrior VPN advertises that they will do the install for you for a fee, since you are not "too technical" that might work for you.

Check out HotSpot (http://www.hotspotvpn.com/) VPN service. It is a paid service, but many reviewers rate it as the best service around. There is a similar sounding service called Hotspot Shield that is free, but I think it is from a different company.

I started using VPN4ALL about a month ago. The soft is so great! It's very easy to use and it allows to connect to one of 20 (and expanding) servers in one click. There also are some built-in additional services (anti-virus, anti-spam protection, working automatically). The software may run with Windows startup. You can try the fully-functional (but only limited in time of 1 hour) trial version for free: www.vpn4all.com/trial.;)

VPS and VPN are two entirely different things...what are you trying to do?

er..... what are you trying to achieve caller?

Anonymity whilst browsing/downloading? Or a secure access point for when you're using public wifi?

This thread is around 1.5 years old. I think he likely gave up or moved on.

My ISP, Sonic.net, offers a VPN service as part of their standard home ADSL/ADSL2+ packages. Very handy when I'm on the road and don't trust the WiFi network I'm on. My wife uses it all the time at work, as well.

You can just set one up on your own router anyway.

Seems weird.

Only issue with that is that you are now restricted to your download/upload speeds because you are traversing your personal link.
