Adequate VPN Server

Professional use for file access and email servers.

Pros

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).

Cons

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.

It gives me the freedom to change my IP address.

Pros

OpenVPN is available for Ipads, Android and PC and gives you the flexibility to change your IP: address.

Cons

The first impression of the software is it is difficult to setup compared with other services, however after some time you get used to it.
