iPad VPN – OpenVPN – PFsense

I have been waiting for a while for a good openvpn client to be available for the iPad or iPhone with out JailBreaking. A few months back openvpn released an app for the iPad and iPhone.


Head on over and download if you are a pfsense user. I recommend anyone who is using public / unsecured wifi to use VPN. If you don’t want to setup a vpn at your home, head on over to WiFi-VPN and setup an account. It is easy and cheap. If you are a DIY type of person, then just read up on PfSense. I have been using PfSense as my main firewall for about a year and it has been fantastic and has helped speed up my connection. If you are looking for something a bit easier, you may want to look at untangled. PFsense and Untangled both allow you to have a PPTP vpn or an OpenVpn Vpn. I have recently moved to using openvpn exclusively now that I have it working on my home network.

OpenVPN allows you to use port 443 as the connection port, this will allow you to connect behind most firewall locations.

I will be posting in the near future how to setup pfsense to use port 443 and OpenVPN.
