    Default Do you use VPN?

    Continuation of this post but with a poll. the last thread has been closed

    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if you could give me your thoughts on VPN. I am covering this for my final year dissertation at university.
    I am investigating some different protocols and was interested in getting a feel for what people use if they do.

    the main thing I was wanting to know is,
    Do you use it?
    If so what type do you use?

    e.g.
    PPTP
    IPSEC
    L2TP
    SSL/SSH

    I dont mind if its for home or work and you dont have to mention what the VPN is for so you can keep your secret things secret

    Any information would help greatly for my project

    I use SSH to log into my Linux home server. Best way to manage a headless server, and least amount of bandwidth, IMO.
    Two years. They were great. Let's make the next ones even better!

    Thanks everyone who has post so far. It seems like a lot of you are using it with headless servers what is quite interesting

    Crenn is that irc to send commands or are you hosting a channel on it? sounds interesting either way.
    Just using IRC to chat with others including helping out with electronic type questions when I can.

    I run a windows 7 computer headless but RDC into it, usually via SSH.
