Post subject:  Private VPN clients vs built in windows vpn client

I currently use a service called TorGuard to mask my IP on trackers, etc... They provide a VPN client provided by Viscosity. I constantly have to battle with keeping it connected. It's almost like a dead man trigger.

I was thinking about trying to use the built in windows tools to try and establish a VPN tunnel to them. Anyone ever try this?

TorGuard has been proven many times to not successfully mask identity. Use a combination of a standard VPN client (I use PIA) and good ole PeerBlock with some decent IP blocklists.

Any blocklist suggestions? The built in lists are subscription only now, and I haven't heard many good things about them

I agreed PIA is a much better option in terms of features and price. I recently saw one of the comprehensive review about PIA here https://www.criticthoughts.com/vpn/priv ... ss-review/ It states PIA also provide features including kill switch, DNS leak protection, a variety of encryption options, auto-connect feature for multiple supported platforms, SOCKS5 proxy, 5 simultaneous connections as well as the option for peer-to-peer Torrenting. That is why PIA is much better option even many other top rated VPNs

I still use TorGuard for my needs (mostly just because I'm lazy and have not changed anything yet). But on the other hand I ended up writing a bunch of scripts that's do various tasks to help mitigate any issues I had with them. It seems to be pretty stable but I constantly have my scripts doing things in the background such as rotating the servers it's connected to and once connected check for stalls and reconnect if needed, etc.
