    Reliable VPN for Mac?
    I just moved out to China and there are a lot of sites (Youtube, FB, Megavideo, Wikipedia, etc.) I can't access.

    I was told to use Hotspot Shield, but it's not working all the time for me. Then I started looking into VPN solutions.

    Does anyone know a reliable and easy-to-use VPN application that works for Mac in China?

    Obviously free of cost would be ideal, but if you know from experience one that it's not free but it really works please let me know as well.

    Take a look here.

    That should give you some idea of how to set it up.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have Snow Leopard but I was able to figure out how to get to the same place the Web site explained. However, you'll have to excuse my ignorance in this topic, but should I use the exact same info given there:

    1. Type into the Server address: field.
    2. Type your NetID into the Account Name: field.
    3. Type your NetID password into the Password: field.

    Or should I have this info myself from another source I'm still not clear on?

    You would need the information to the network you are trying to tunnel in too.

    I see... The thing is, I don't have an specific network I want to tunnel to. I just want to be able to navigate the internet as if I was in US or EU where I can access any site without a problem.

    So in order to do that:
    1. Do I need to ask my server administrator (aka internet provider) for the necessary information to set up a VPN?

    2. Or is there another way I can get that information (from an open network perhaps) so I can set up the VPN on my own?

    In addition to that I found this application that seems quite neat to create and manage VPN. I just need the information to fill up the information the application asks me for after installing it.

    By the way, thanks for your reply!
