After writing on SSTP VPN, I realized, I also have to write something about SSL/Open VPN Service. You are right if you are thinking that SSTP VPN is also an SSL VPN Service. But, SSTP VPN is only For Windows, specifically Windows Vista, Windows 7 and above. Therefore, if you want to setup SSTP like VPN account on your Linux or Mac OS Computers and want to enjoy the stability and security of SSL/SSTP VPN, you will have to go with OpenVPN.
OpenVPN works on Windows, Mac OS and Linux. Plus, it can also be used on various Mobile devices like iPhone and Android. Unlike SSTP VPN on Windows, in order to setup SSL/OpenVPN, you will have to download OpenVPN Free Software from either your VPN Provider’s Website or OpenVPN’s Website.
There are some VPN Providers that have integrated OpenVPN in their own VPN Dialer, which makes it amazingly easy for VPN users to use OpenVPN Service. There is a common misunderstanding that Setting up OpenVPN is difficult than setting up simple PPTP and L2TP Connection. In fact, as I mentioned earlier, we have VPN Services like Astrill VPN and Hide My Ass VPN, that have already integrated OpenVPN with their own extremely user friendly dialers. Therefore, Astrill’s and Hidemyass’s dialers are personal favorites.
Moreover, like Windows SSL/SSTP VPN, SSL/OpenVPN gives you several advantages over PPTP and L2TP VPN, which includes advantages like, it can bypass almost every government firewall on Port 443, it is more secure and almost impossible to break in the secure tunnel created by OpenVPN and gives you better stability and reliability unlike PPTP and L2TP VPN.
