What is SoftEther VPN?
SoftEther VPN ("SoftEther" stands for "Ethernet Software") is one of the most powerful and easy-to-use multi-protocol VPN software in the world. Runs on Windows, Linux, Mac, FreeBSD and Solaris.
It is open source, so you can use it for personal or commercial use, free of charge.
It has an OpenVPN Server cloning function, but it is faster than OpenVPN. It also supports Microsoft SSTP VPN for Windows Vista/7/8., so you don't need to pay dearly for a license to use it Windows Server which offers you remote access VPN function.
The software can also be used for the implementation of BYOD (Bring your own device) by companies. If you have smartphones, tablets or laptops, SoftEther VPN's L2TP/IPsec server function will help you create a remote access VPN from your local network. SoftEther's L2TP VPN Server is compatible with Windows, Mac, iOS and Android operating systems.
Free SoftEther VPN is not only an alternative VPN server to existing VPN products (OpenVPN, IPsec and MS-SSTP), but also has an original powerful SSL-VPN protocol for you to bypass any type of firewall. The highly optimized SoftEther VPN SSL-VPN protocol has very fast performance, low latency and firewall strength.
The built-in NAT Transmitter traverses every annoying firewall of your network administrator.
You can set up your own VPN server behind your company firewall or NAT, and you can access that VPN server on the corporate private network from your home or mobile phone without changing your firewall settings.
Any firewalls cannot detect SoftEther VPN transfer packets as VPNs because they use Ethernet over HTTPS for camouflage.
