I am currently using http://www.poptop.org/. I have heard on the show that pptp is not very secure. Suggestion on a replacement?

Hi ChrisUnder,

I would definetly recommend OpenVPN, Darren did a segment on that how to install.

You can alternatively download the software from the link below.

http://www.openvpn.net/, it currently allows 2 concurrent connections, but if you wish to have more, you will have to buy licenses which should cost around $10 dollars or less.

Its a lot cheaper than Microsoft licenses. Let me know how you go

Thank you for the reply!

The OpenVPN segment was what made me ask the question. Seems that OpenVPN and a non-JailBroken iPhone do not get along.

Please let me know if I am wrong.

Have you tried using openVPN with a non-jailbroken iphone before? If yes, is it giving any error messages, or is it freezing up or? Or it doesn't give you the options to configure VPN?

Sorry I am just trying to figure out, what is happening?

Thanks for the link!

I got OpenVPN working with a Linux Server and my MacBook as a client.

The only options I get on my iPhone are L2TP, PPTP and IPSec.

The link above only seems to work for only for Jailbroken iPhones. For business reasons I can not Jailbrake my iPhone.

Is there a good Linux L2TP or IPSec application out there? I have been using PPTP via PopTop, but I really do not think it is very secure.

Thanks again!

I looked at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Layer_2_Tunneling_Protocol and it seems L2TP is not that great either. Which leaves me with IPSec

I have never set up an iphone with openvpn before, so I can't give you a definitive answer on that one. But you could try using IPSec, I don't see why it wouldn't work.

I spoke to a support person at OpenVPN no iPhone love on the horizon. I am thinking of sticking with PopTop for my iPhone and iPad. And use OpenVPN for my MacBook.

Do you think that PopTop is good enough for using my iDevices in a hostile wifi location (Air Port)?

Thanks again for all the help!

As long as you are not using the windows built in VPN . It should be good enough.
