What is OpenVPN?
A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is a solution which allows the Internet to be used to pass traffic securely between two remote locations. VPN's can be used to connect remote workers to an office network, or to connect multiple remote offices to a main office.
OpenVPN is an open source VPN solution used by many Madison, WI area businesses. One of the advantages of OpenVPN over other VPN solutions is that it is Network Address Translation, or NAT friendly. This reduces the chance that users will have connection problems, especially when connecting through public networks, such as coffee shops, airports, or in hotels.
OpenVPN uses advanced security to protect data transmitted over the Internet, and can be configured to meet a wide variety of connectivity needs.
OpenVPN offers clients for Windows, Mac, and also includes support for many mobile devices such as iPad, iPhone, and Android devices. This allows the same VPN server to support a wide variety of devices and connectivity needs.
