Anyone use OpenVPN?

So I was looking for an SSL VPN to run for access to the house from work via SSL VPN.

I stumbled upon OpenVPN, and they had a prebuilt VMWare and Hyper-V VM, already configured.

After downloading, and importing into VM Ware, and 5 minutes of configuring, I'm connected to the house via SSL VPN.

You get 2 concurrent licenses for free, each additional license is 5 bucks.

Not too shabby really.

I do not use it, but I haven't heard anything bad about it.

I do see openvpn show up every now and then in bugtrack, so just make sure you keep it updated with the latest version/patches.

I will definitely try it out, thanks!
Pre-configured VM's why not!
