1.Works very well with DD-WRT routers : Customers looking to have their local network on one single VPN account will need to use OpenVPN and a router that supports DD-WRT. This free firmware upgrade allows you to take a single VPN account and connect it through the local router interface. This will allow your local network to share a single VPN connection. We have supported many customers through their modification and the good news is that it works well.
2.Stronger Encryption : What does this mean to you? OpenVPN is the most secure protocol available. StrongVPN provides you with 256-bit encryption and data authentication via digital certificates. Users connected with an OpenVPN protocol can attain high speeds on networks, even if there is high latency.
3.No drop of packets (*when using TCP) : If you should lose connection, you won't be thrown back on the Internet. With our service, you have the option to use a TCP protocol, which allows you to bypass nearly any ISP, network, or regional restriction. ISPs have a hard time throttling it as well, since it can be used on any port.
4.Port Modification and Protocol Modification Ability : If for some reason you still find that you’re unable to connect using the standard OpenVPN configuration, our expert team can provide a custom configuration by changing the Ports or Protocol that your VPN service connects with. Not sure what all that means? No problem. We can login and do these changes for you remotely.
Stands for "Secure Shell." SSH is a method of securely communicating with another computer. The "secure" part of the name means that all data sent via an SSH connection is encrypted. This means if a third party tries to intercept the information being transferred, it would appear scrambled and unreadable. The "shell" part of the name means SSH is based on a Unix shell, which is a program that interprets commands entered by a user.
