      OpenVPN?

      Hi Guys,

      Thinking of installing VPN software on my router to give added security;

      Read a few negative comments about, Sky not supporting IP blocking and that certain VPN's are difficult to setup and very costly etc.

      Can anyone give me any advice on installing a VPN and if recommended which package would you suggest?

      WM.

      I have a Sky Hub SR 102 and would like to use a VPN for extra security and also I would like to stream NBC Sport Live.

      You either need to replace the router(see other numerous threads), or run your VPN software directly from the machine you want to use, SR102 is pants if you want to start taking control of your end of the line and home network . Use a VPN provider that doesn't keep logs and shares IPs, many providers lie about what they will do with regard to security and choosing is a minefield. DON'T buy a year straight away, buy a month to suck it and see first.
