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.


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.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.12

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.12 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
