    OpenVPN is free for up to two connections.

    The Arch wiki gives a quick technical overview:

    I created my own on my Draytek Router, I use it when I'm abroad to show that I'm in the UK.

    I have a few of those Draytek routers, they are great but they do not hide your IP

    VoIP on them good too.
    Thanks, don't you just hate people with sigs !

    Just pay £10 or so a month and get a decent, spam/ad/virus free VPN if its that important OP.

    Free VPNs are either really poor, or contain nasties as nothing in this world is free!
    The instructions on the box said 'Requires Windows 7 or better'. So I installed LINUX

    A VPN (virtual private network) is a secure and private solution within the wider internet itself that allows users – whether they are individuals, or part of an organisation, or business – to send and receive data while maintaining the secrecy of a private network.

    The five best VPN services
    1. IPVanish
    2. VyprVPN
    3. ExpressVPN
    4. NordVPN
    5. TunnelBear

    Regards,
    Christian
