Documentation OpenVPN is a tried and true VPN solution. It's totally secure and infinitely configurable. You can install and run this software without relying on a third party, but the fact that it’s open source and free is what really makes it stand out. OpenVPN can be a little daunting to configure the first time you jump into it, but once you get your configuration worked out, it’s a pleasure to use.
