Here we will summarize all the VPN protocols and Proxy types available with your TUVPN account.
If you want to get up and running asap, just forget about this and follow our Fast Track to start quick and easy. You can come back and check all other options we are offering any time you want. Remember that TUVPN is about choices!.
So, if you want to move on, please first take a look at this blog post, where we clearly explain the working differences between the different VPN types and Proxies that we offer.
Once done, the following table will include the rest of the answers to help you do the right choice:
High Anonymity Proxies
|Encryption Strength||256 bits using AES cipher||128 bits using AES cipher||128 bits using MPPE protocol ||256 bits using AES cipher||None|
|Security Level||Very Good||Good||Average||Very Good||Just Anonymity|
|Supported Platforms||Windows, Linux, Mac, iPhone/iPad(*), Android||Windows, Linux, Mac, iPhone/iPad, Android||Windows, Linux, Mac, iPhone/iPad, Android||Windows, Linux, Mac||Windows, Linux, Mac, iPhone/iPad, Android|
|Performance||Very Good||Very Good||Excellent||Very Good||Excellent|
|Additional Software Needed||Yes||No||No||Yes||No|
|Dynamic RPF Compatible||Yes||Yes||Yes||No||No|
|Protect Standalone Applications||No||No||No||Yes||No|
|Dedicated IP Compatible||Yes||Yes||Yes||No||No|
|Alternate VPN Port||Yes, 443/tcp||No||No||No||No|
|Potential Leakage (**)
|Advised Use||Preferred TUVPN protocol for all uses.||Good protocol to provide high security to mobile devices.||To be used when no other protocols are supported or for non sensitive communications.||
Only protocol that allows to protect standalone applications.
Perfect when you want to maximise the efficiency and control of the VPN.
|To anonymise your Internet browsing.|
Default/Fast Track TuVPN protocol.
Maximum security/performance ratio.
Much better security than PPTP and similarly supported.
Slightly slower performance than PPTP.
Weakest encryption offered.
Works on most devices. Quick an easy to deploy.
Somewhat more complex to setup.
Huge flexibility of use.
|No protection of communications offered (no encryption).|
||Windows (All Platforms)||Win7-Vista (32-bit)
Win XP (32-bit)
Win XP (64-bit)
Win XP (32-bit)
Win XP (64-bit)
|Windows (All Platforms)||Not Available|
(*) Just with a Jailbroken iPhone
(**) Refers to the fact that if the VPN connection drops, additional traffic could reach the Internet (if no countermeasures taken)
