VPN Newbie question - which VPN to use?



  • hi all

    can someone please help me…. how do I decide which VPN setup to use?

    Purpose: Need to access my home network from Windows 7-10 and Android. Nothing else is important.

    Needs to be as secure as possible - i.e. that nobody can brute-force it within a reasonable length of time.

    I cannot understand which is best to use. For example IPSec IKEv2 / EAP-MSCHAPv2  vs  OpenVPN

    Any idea where I should start?

    Thanks
    Matt

    Personally, I prefer OpenVPN for that role, especially when working with multiple architectures. However, IKEv2 can work fine as well. You'll get better performance out of IKEv2, but if load is not a concern, OpenVPN can be easier and more flexible.

    Both are secure, so long as you use secure settings. There are articles on the Doc wiki for both setups.
