What do you want to VPN into? What you want to VPN into usually determines what client you are going to use.

Or if its just a point to point VPN then you can use anything really..

Mainly for fileserve which I run thorugh IDM.

IPlayer could also be good for the odd Formula 1 video we cant get here.

I use Witopia to watch iPlayer. Usually works fine, sometimes a bit slow but I can usually just change servers and it speeds up. Hulu seems to work ok as well. Havent tried any torrents over it though.

Expat shield is good (and free) for iPlayer.

I've used happy VPN in the past to connect to the UK. Speeds weren't bad, could stream video over it easily enough. Gaming was a no no though (shocking pings).
