We provide 3 different types of VPN servers:

L2TP - quick and simple to configure on IOS devices (iphone & iPad) & Mac

PPTP - Simple to configure for Windows. Soon to be retired (OpenVPN should be your first choice).

You will find the instructions and videos showing you how to configure your device in our knowledge base, (search for you device type ie 'Windows' or 'iphone' ). For each type of setup, you will need to copy and paste the username (your email) and password which you can find on your dashboard on our site. For L2TP you will also need to enter the 'shared secret' which is  happiness  


You can setup multiple VPN clients on your device, and switch between them. The table below shows the different servers and what they are used for. You can use either VPN type on each server.
