Let me summarize it this way: I sell network tunnels of multiple
types, and OpenVPN is what I use for my own home tunnel.
- Like CIPE, OpenVPN uses UDP for transport, avoiding the TCP/TCP
issues. However, to avoid UDP-application/UDP issues OpenVPN
can optionally use TCP for transport.
- OpenVPN is easy to build, easy to configure, and easy to
maintain. It uses the 'tun' module included with every Linux
distribution I know of. Kernel upgrades do not require any
OpenVPN changes or rebuilding.
- OpenVPN glides gracefully through network breakages, remote-peer
reboots, and dynamic IP changes.
- OpenVPN supports Linux, *BSD, MacOS, Solaris, and Windows.
- OpenVPN uses SSL/TLS certificates for authentication, with
negotiated encryption keys. (For simple setups, it also
supports fixed-key operation. It can even be run without
authentication or encryption.)
- OpenVPN supports optional LZO compression. Net uncompressed
data transfer rates sometimes exceed wirespeed.
- OpenVPN supports bridging tunnels. The tunnel type is a
run-time option, not a compile-time option.
- OpenVPN is under active development and maintenance, with a
substantial user community and active forums.
