VyprVPN

VyprVPN is a VPN service developed by Golden Frog, a US-based sister company to the renowned Giganews. On offering from the service are such protocols like PPTP, L2TP/IPSEC and OpenVPN, and servers are located across different countries. VyprVPN is a relatively new VPN service provider in the market, but that is not to say that the service you will get from it will be low in quality. It provides you with an advanced protection from all forms of online privacy intruders.

Servers of VyprVPN are located in about three countries around the world. There are two server locations in the United States; these places are Washington, DC and Los Angeles, California. Servers are also located in both Hong Kong and Amsterdam; if you think of it, the number of server locations is not really poor for a service like this that has not been around for very long. VyprVPN supports such popular VPN technologies as PPTP, L2TP/IPSec and OpenVPN; the OpenVPN protocol being the latest to be added. As an added protection against all forms of threats, there is an optional NAT firewall service that users can make use of. Speed tests revealed that the connection speed on the service is good enough so users should not have much problem using it. VyprVPN can be used for video streaming without any problem. The number of users on the service at any point in time does not have any negative effect on the level of speeds that you can enjoy from VyprVPN.

There is no need to download or install any software to start using VyprVPN. The necessary set up that needs to be done follows a manual process; instruction for set up is also available for those who may not be used to setting up internet connection on their computers. But for Windows users, the set up can be done via the Control Panel. To set up VyprVPN in Windows 7, just open the Network and Sharing Center in the Control Panel and try to connect using the “Connect to workplace” option. Select “Use my Internet Connection”, choose a server location and use your username and password to get connected.

VyprVPN pricing plans are designed with payments to be made on monthly basis. There are basically two packages that users can choose from, and these are:

VyprVPN (PPTP connection and 128-bit encryption): $14.99 for one month
VyprVPN Pro (PPTP, OpenVPN and L2TP/IPSec connections with 128-bit encryption and 256-bit encryption): $19 for one month

When setting up connections, errors will sometimes be experienced on VyprVPN. These errors mostly have to do with connections timing out or the inability to connect to the VPN servers at all. And to determine the origin of the errors (whether they are from VyprVPN or from your own network), just open the command prompt window and type “telnet us1.vpn.giganews.com 1723″ (without the inverted commas). The screen should go black and then get disconnected in approximately 10 seconds before returning the prompt, if it connects. You can ask for support from VyprVPN should the errors persist.

VyprVPN is a service that you should check out considering the quality of service that awaits you.
