VPN

I have full FIOS services. I am considering adding a third party VPN. Has anyone done this? Is there a problem with it? Will it impact on my regular FIOS servides?

i've only have 50:50 fios a month, but have already used a vpn in a vm, off a pc tap, and off my router's firmware, and thus far have not found any additional issues beyond those already native to vpn use itself.

 

one thing that surprised me after coming from a 50/5 coax to 50/50 fiber, is despite the greater upload, when i p2p those other networks i'm connected to do not exploit my upload as much as i had expected.

 

so if your plan is to p2p seed a lot, you may be better off using a vps off a cloud server, not a vpn off some client pc.

I use the paid version of Windscribe VPN: https://windscribe.com/

I have used a couple different versions of Cisco's VPN clients - the latest being Cisco Anyconnect and just recently started using Barracuda Networks VPN client. They both seem to work fine.

 

I can't speak to trying to run a VPN server using FiOS though, if that's what you mean.

any speedtest sight is a naive and misleading way to test a VPN Smiley Tongue 

 

https://www.ubuntu.com/download/alternative-downloads  

a more accurate method is to p2p commercially seeded torrents  

such as ubuntu clients, then see how consistant your MB/sec is,

then multiply that number by 8 to get your MBPS rating.  

 

fios gigabyte customers may be disspointed to learn that most

VPN outlets will only give them 13MB/sec.
