    Question Questions on Running Your Own Public Vpn Server


    Folks,

    If I wish to run a public vpn service then should I hire a dedicated server or is a vps enough ?
    And which type of software you recommend ? What are the top 10 free ones ? Sames question goes for paid ones.
    Also, what are the risks associated with running a public vpn or even a private one ?
    Anything else I should know on this topic ?

    Havn't you asked this many (MANY...) times in the last year??? Why not just go with the same answers that you got then. It's not going to change now.

    Where did I ask these questions before ?
    Last time I asked about the resources needed to run a vps server. Asked for resource advice.
    Before that, I asked about web proxy php script recommendations.
    Now, I am asking about vpn. Vps & vpn are not the same, you know. Neither are web proxy and vpn the same.
    Ok, maybe with a web proxy you can run a vpn but I would not know as I reckon you run a vpn with the likes of socks proxy. Guessing. That is why asking about vpn software/webs script. So I no longer need to do guessing.
    Now, see if you can answer my original questions, or not.
    The web proxy I am using does not encrypt your connections. Vpn does. And so, common sense telling me vpn software/web script is different. Hence, asking about vpn software/web script.
    Got that ? Yes or no ?

    The problem is, again, you don't actually know what you need. You know that it's "different" to something else, but tell me... what exact systems are you going ot use for this? How many users are you going to cater for? What safeguards and failovers are you planning on having in place?

    All of these questions should be answered by a hosting or server company - not by random people on the internet.

    Imagine... I'd say that you just need a really cheap VPS. go for anything less than $10 a month and you'll be fine for 1,000,00 users easy.

    So, believe me?
