    I've registered with Bucklor, but when trying to log into their VPN I always get an 'authentication failed' message, with all protocols and all servers.

    Is it just me?

    "Lifelong"? Not unless your life is ending sometime in the next two weeks

    "Dear customers,

    Thanks so much for your support to us. Due to the significant changes to company operations, we decide to close Bucklor.com this month. We have returned all the payment to users who placed the order on June and changed their account to free one. All account will be disabled and deleted at the end of this month. So please try to choose other VPN provider to continue your usage. We are so sorry about this inconvenience, thanks so much for your support and understanding.

    Best Regards,
    Bucklor"

    What do you get with the free version compared to the paid one?

    Best one I've used is VyprVPN

    without a doubt it has been VyprVPN for me in Australia. I've used and trialled a few and it leaves, for example HideMyAss in the dust. It's not cheap though but I have not been geo-blocked EVER. They give you a free trial and there's no messing around setting it up either. The interface is basic and sleek and unlike most other MAC VPN's it has locked me into the connection if it's has failed which has been on very rare occasions :)
    with 6 VPN OPTIONS TOO play with and they are ALL VERY FAST
    Chameleon, 256 encryption with no loss of speed, very nice
    Open VPN 256 encrypt
    Open VPN 160 encrypt
    L2PT/IPsec 256 encrypt
    PPTP 128 encrypt
    VyprDNS which is new and I haven't tried it yet

    It's works flawlessly on my MBP and iPhone 5s, I don't usually give companies glowing reports but these guys have done their homework and it rocks, with 24/7 support. If you're like me and don't want to set one up then check them out, free trail.
