    Hey, looooong time lurker, first time poster....

    I was wondering if we could get a list of VPN sellers who allow VPN routers or the configuration of. Ive been in contact with a few :

    iVPN = Dont allow
    Airvpn = Allow, although does not seem to work
    AceVPN = Allow, works well (log clients)
    StrongVPN = Allow (log clients)
    PRQ.se = Dpnt allow

    I was hoping to get iVPN to allow, as they have been the best in terms of speed and stability, but not happening. Airvpn as has been impossible to connect using their current configuration as well. Strong and Ace actually work very well, ans also very stabe, however, their logging policies make them a no-no.
    Any information appreciated.

    I have used OpenVPN in pfSense VMs with several VPN services, including both BolehVPN and iVPN. pfSense will run on rather minimal hardware, and it's free. There are many threads at -forum.pfsense.org about using pfSense with VPN services.

    Well i have a household with 2 ipads , 2 macs and an iphone all using the internet, which i would like them going through the 1 vpn, but seeing as all providers only allow 1 connection at a time, using a WRT router and openvpn solve sthat problem.

    Some providers don't limit simultaneous connections. Using multiple VPN connections will give you more total bandwidth, as long as you get more than 2-3 Mbps from your ISP. Although routers cost less than PCs, even cheap PCs, configuring and flashing OpenWRT is probably harder than installing pfSense. And there's no real risk of bricking your hardware.

    I'll have a read up and check that out, thanks. As for multiple connections from providers, Ive not seen any any of the main providers offering this without paying for another account.

    thanks.

    Just FYI.

    Mullvad.net: "Yes, up to three. Use the same customer id on all the computers"

    insorg.org professional VPN: "We allow 3 simultaneous connections using one username from the same Internet connection!"

    bolehvpn.net: "We only allow 2 VPN connection on a single internet ip address to connect to our servers at a specified time."

    iVPN: "Therefore if you wish to have access to the VPN with two devices simultaneously then you would need two separate subscriptions."

    XeroBank.com: unlimited connections for now, I think

    Perfect-privacy doesn't make hard limit (reasonable use :D) for server connections. If I remember it correctly, that information cannot be found their site but forum instead.
