Use OpenVPN to a create a secure virtual private network

Anyone who has attempted to set up a virtual private network will be aware that it can be fraught with problems. OpenVPN is a comprehensive VPN tool which perfects the balance between ease of use and security which can be used to enable remote access on any scale and allow for communication between different networks.

Tunnelling of an IP subnet or virtual Ethernet adaptor over a single communication port means that the program is very firewall friendly, overcoming one of the problems that makes many VPN tools difficult to configure.

With security based on SSL you can use static, pre-shared keys or TLS-based dynamic key exchange, and real-time traffic analysis can be used to manage bandwidth usage between clients. When used for remote access or any other purpose, access control can be used to place restrictions on individual users or user groups.

Configuring a VPN is never going to be a simple process, but OpenVPN does help to make things easier. Thankfully this does not mean having to compromise on features or security, even though the program is available completely free of charge.

Verdict:

OpenVPN is not for the faint hearted, but anyone looking to make use of virtual private networks will find it hard to find a better tool.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
