OpenVPN Valuable Features

Elliott Scott
CEO at Scott Solutions LLC
The features I have found to be most valuable are the levels of encryption I can enact and the compression I can apply to improve throughput. Obviously, the higher the level of encryption the more difficult it will be to intercept valuable content; and of course, the more we can compress data through the tunnel, the higher the level of relative throughput we can achieve.

One of the new features of it is you can change the default port. Instead of 1194, like everybody expects, you can change it to whichever port you want to use. Another thing is that you can do local subnet blocking. View full review »

A valuable feature for us is its ability to see the new Citrix server as a local server within the company. And it allows us to test abroad. We have a couple other sites that we want to try to get people to remote into. Having that feature really helped. View full review »

* Easy to set up. * Clients for multiple platforms * It runs on Linux. * It allows for two-factor authentication. This makes it very easy to administer if it is running on a Linux server where you can do everything over CLI or a web-based interface. Some software only has clients for MAC and Windows, which is annoying. Two-factor authentication allows us to not force frequent password changes. View full review »
