Like hamachi there is a authentication server which you log into ans that gives you your unique ip address but the rest is controled by you and the other clients in the network.

If anyone uses it let me know and we could make a community private leaf net. :-)

private hak5 network would be a great idea if we can get enough people in on it. file sharing would be easy. plus the it would have the ability for console lan party's too. there are a lot of possibilities for it.

ok all ive been doing some research on all of this ive come across 2 other projects besides leaf the first is called hamachi which buzzinh showed me and the other one is openvpn.

here are the links to the info on all the vpns

leaf networks

the main site is posted earlier in the forum

http://techie-buzz.com/online-goodies/leaf...y-hardware.html is a article i found on it (there is not much good information on it out there)

hamachi

https://secure.logmein.com/products/hamachi/vpn.asp?lang=en is the main site

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamachi

openvpn

http://openvpn.net/

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenVPN

i would like to know what everyone thinks would be best. by the way i would really like to see more people get involved with creating the hak5 vpn so let us know what you think

gaming over the vpn is one of my biggest interests, well that and security. i think the choice is going to come down to Hamachi and openvpn.

i did hear openvpn mentioned in the show today, during the firewall section.

Yea i heard that in the show too looks internesting.. i think your right... leaf is too zero conf (not enough features)

open vpn looks good but im concerend it maybe a little feature packed and complicated to setup for people with less knowlege of this kinda thing??

I have tried Hamachi and OpenVPN, and i prefer OpenVPN, cause i have more control over my connections. In some enviromenst i need to setup a VPN connection behind a firewall, but with hamachi you have to pay to get a decent speed, while with OpenVPN i noticed only 20% speed drop.

to be perfectly honest i have never done anything with a vpn before this. but the way i feel is that people need to learn things and shouldn't use a weaker product because its easier. plus this will be a community project so there will be plenty of help for people that have question.

well speed is key especial with gaming. thank you bit hunter for that information. control over your connections is important when it comes to security.

i think that with everything that we know now we should go with openvpn. plus there is the fact that the hak5 crew are suppose to feature somethings on it in a future ep. sense this is a community project i created a new thread in projects>community projects labeled Hak5 vpn (link to it http://hak5.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=11914)

so lets move all discussion over there.
