    I have a membership, just curious if anyone has any reviews or thoughts on the service?

    It appears they use a repackaged OpenVPN software for their client and they dont require a username/password/email to login to the service.

    OpenVPN is used in the background and you can easily create a configuration file that will work without the 3rd party tool and even with other operating systems, which officially are not supported.

    The authentication is based on a client certificate and a key file.

    The company behind the service is Steganos from Germany.

    How secure are they in their policies? How are their speeds? Logging? I cant seem to find much info about them.

    How does one do this? I would definitely be interested in using the OpenVPN client over the OkayFreedom client.

    OpenVPN configuration files are basically lists of options to use. Order doesn't matter. For the most part, the server pushes what it wants. But things can get confused if the client specifies incompatible stuff. I'd start by digging through the OkayFreedom client, and seeing if I could find what options it's using. The OpenVPN manual -- https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/manuals/65-openvpn-20x-manpage.html -- should give you a sense of what you're looking for.
