    • What is a VPN?

    •  - VPN stands for Virtual Private Network.

      A VPN provides a secure way to access network resources over the Internet or other public or private networks and allows you to connect to a remote network and become a node on that network. VPNs use tunneling, encryption, authentication, and access control over a public network at the same time for security.

      Although they often use public networks, VPNs inherit the characteristics of a private network, thus the "Virtual" Private Network.

    • How does it work?

    •  - It adds a new network interface which you are working with as if you are working with direct internet connection. But the IP is different, and all traffic is encrypted.

    • Can I use your VPN instead of my current ISP connection?

    •  - No, you need existing (Cable, DSL, dial up, Satellite, etc) internet connection to be able to use VPN service.


  • Speed Questions
    • Will VPN slow down my system or internet connection?

    •  - No, generally you won't notice any slowness.

    • Can I increase the speed of my connection when using VPN service?

    •  - Sometimes users do report the VPN bypasses their ISP's throttles. Some users do report applications run better as well such as P2P.


  • Useage Questions
    • Can I connect to my account from more than one device?

    •  - Yes, with most services you can use it from as many different devices as you want.. Sometimes with only one device at a time though. When you switch systems you may need to disconnect first.

    • Can I use VPN on public computer?

    •  - Yes you can run it on any computer, but you will need superuser privileges to be able to configure and establish network connection.

    • Does it also protect other protocols like ICQ, Mail or FTP.

    •  - Once you are connected to a VPN server, all programs use a virtual network interface, which protects all programs that access internet on your computer.

    • What ports should be open on firewall/router for it to work?

    •  - No ports should be open, however your ISP must allow GRE protocol for you. In most cases you won't experience any problems connecting to our VPN server from any place
