Linux Format - - ROUNDUP -

Mul­l­vad is the per­fect service for VPN be­gin­ners. Set­ting it up is as easy as com­plet­ing a web­site CAPTCHA to get an ac­count num­ber, in­stalling and en­ter­ing that num­ber into the Linux client, and that’s it. In around 60 sec­onds we had signed up, down­loaded, in­stalled and launched the client, and been al­lo­cated a new Swedish IP ad­dress.

The client has fea­tures for more ex­pe­ri­enced users, too. It shows your IP, server, port and pro­to­col up-front. There’s port for­ward­ing, DNS leak pro­tec­tion, IPV6 sup­port, a whole bunch of ad­vanced tweaks and set­tings, and some de­tailed online guid­ance for any­one who needs it.

There are small us­abil­ity an­noy­ances. Other clients en­able changing IP in one click, while here you might take six clicks. Per­for­mance is a lit­tle below av­er­age, too. Still, Mul­l­vad is a sim­ple way to get started.
