Windows VPN Install

We use and promote open source VPN technology using the “Open VPN” architecture. One thing most people don’t know about VPN technology is that open source doesn’t necessarily mean free. What it means is that there is an architecture that already exists that can be built upon. Our Nue Wave VPN service uses this architecture to provide fast, reliable, and inexpensive VPN access to our clients. Instead of creating fancy apps plastered with our name and logo everywhere, we use open source apps that already enable you to use a VPN service. Instead creating apps we concentrate on delivering a stable, secure, and fast certificate gateway at a great price. We believe that you are going to love our service and this article will walk you through step by step on how to install VPN on your Windows machine.
