Just browsing for VPN alternatives, found SoftEther. It doesn't exist in the forum yet.

http://www.softether.org

This was Daiyuu Nobori's master's thesis research. I haven't installed it yet but will probably do so soon on a VM to see what's up.

I thought maybe somebody with more networking experience than I have might be interested.

It evidently does OpenVPN, ms-sstp, L2TP/IPsec and about 5 more, including VPN over https, over dns or icmp.

I'm curious to hear what people think.

I've been playing with it. Unfortunately, it seems have to stability issues running file sharing protocols across the tunnel, at least from OS X clients connecting via L2TP. It's odd because Timbuktu remote control works well. Rarely, it may just disconnect.
