Linux Format - - ROUNDUP -

Slick­VPN’s lack of a Linux client means setup can take a lit­tle thought. The web­site does of­fer sev­eral in­stal­la­tion tu­to­ri­als, though, cov­er­ing OpenVPN on Net­workMan­ager, Com­mand Line and PPTP setup. They’re more de­tailed than Buf­fered VPN, too, though not as easy. The Win­dows client, which you can run through Wine, works well. It looks good, dis­plays servers in a list or on a map, runs speed tests to find the fastest servers, and has some handy bonus fea­tures and set­tings for more ex­pe­ri­enced users. Con­nect di­rectly in Linux and you have ac­cess to all the usual OpenVPN tweaks via Net­workMan­ager, or any other OpenVPN-com­pat­i­ble client they want to in­stall. Net­work novices won’t have as many op­tions, be­cause the Slick­VPN web­site doesn’t of­fer much help be­yond the ini­tial in­stal­la­tion.
