Comment by Thelle
about OpenVPN Jun 2011

The default client (OpenVPN Connect - Connected to ShieldExchange) is very easy to install. I've tried Netflix from my UK address and it works perfectly on my laptop with the 100MB free trial (Didn't work in Google Chrome, but tried IE9 and worked!). I also like that ShieldExchange is a PayAsYouGo service - there is no monthly subscription, you pay for the amount you use. 500GB data transfer is currently 50$, which I find quite competitive, but there are also smaller packages like 50GB for 12$..

Difficult to use and figure out how to install... perhaps it just doesn't play nicely on Windows Server 2008.

OpenVPN allows me to browse whatever I like whenever I like despite living behind the Bamboo Curtain and crossing the Great Firewall.

Lovely package.
