The Best VPN Software for Windows, Mac, Linux for Free – OpenVPN

Virtual Private Network, VPN is a technology which is used to access your office computer network via internet, just by sitting at home. Why should one access through VPN ? Let say your employees want to work from home, and they want to access some files over company network. For remote access, the administrator has to weaken some firefall and stuff and that isn’t a good idea.

This one makes a hole in the network security. So using VPN, the network security will be intact, and the files can be accessed, print to printers and whatever they wish to access from the office network. You can also access blocked websites, browse anonymously and more..


Which is the Best VPN Client ?



OpenVPN is an open source VPN server that’s easy to set up for use with open source VPN clients. It can be download and used for free with Windows, Linux and Mac OSX operating system.

The OpenVPN system isn’t compatible with popular commercial VPN providers, but it provides an open source and free alternative for setting up VPNs to expensive and closed commercial models.
