Hi everyone,
Seeing as dooms day is now upon us I thought I better get my act together and sort out a vpn.
After going through all the different providers out there and reading people's opinion's on here im going with Witopia's package that allows openVPN, Ipsec, PPTP and L2TP.
My network consists of a Cisco 837, couple of switches, wireless AP and a file server.
I managed to figure out cisco ios enough to get it going but I am by no means a network engineer of any sort lol.
I want everyone on my LAN to surf on the VPN. Is this going to be doable with my current router?
I am quite open to setting a machine with Pfsense if that is a better option, or getting some other type of router to do the job.
Cant wait to here what everyone has to say!

With regards to your "Doomsday" comment, note that Witopia will act on DMCA violations if requested to. And you'll only get one warning. They're great for getting around country restrictions and viewing streaming video from "on demand" type services from various broadcasters.

but also theres vpns out there have no records and ignore the letters too

or some forward the letter on and close account if repeat warnings

or if seedbox they remove the torrent for you on a warning.. to comply

bit liek rapidshare I guess do.

so is astrill a better bet than witopia?
Looks awesomely easy to set up. I quite like having the cisco as I have set up Ipsec on that so I can vpn in to home when im away. Been great having all my files available wherever I am.
So is it doable on the cisco or am i pushing sh*t up hill?
