Openvpn, an open source VPN

OpenVPN Access Server is a full featured SSL
VPN software solution that integrates OpenVPN
server capabilities, enterprise management
capabilities, simplified OpenVPN Connect UI, and
OpenVPN Client software packages that
accommodate Windows, MAC, and Linux OS
environments. OpenVPN Access Server supports
a wide range of configurations, including secure
and granular remote access to internal network
and/ or private cloud network resources and
applications with fine-grained access control.


So, what do you think? Is it safe? Better than those free VPNs?

I'm guessing this is a VPN service.

If it's just a "we supply code, you supply everything else" type thing, I don't think using it could cause that much harm, provided it doesn't keep logs on the server and you own the server, but I'd check the code for backdoors just in case.

As far as I am aware, it's not better or worse than other free VPN's. It also depends where you live and what you are using it for. For example, OpenVPN's headquarters are in California. So, you decide

US soil will sell you out.
Just as many other countries in the world where privacy is just a matter of cash.
