SecurityKISS Tunnel is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) software for Windows based on OpenVPN. We have previously given a detailed tutorial on how to install and configure ProXPN which is another free VPN software. For those who don’t know, VPN is a secure communication channel created between two computers or a network of computers.
Why use a VPN?
A VPN connection is a good measure to have safe communication between two or more computers through a public network connection like the Internet. One more use of VPN is to access content blocked by the Internet Service Provider. Using the VPN you are virtually sitting on the computer on the other hand (the VPN server).
SecurityKISS Tunnel is a good choice for newbie and novice users as it is very easy to install, configure and use. Let’s go through each process in brief.
Downloading and installing SecurityKISS
Download the latest version of SecurityKISS installer.
SecurityKISS is supported on the following Operating Systems:
- Windows XP (32-bit & 64-bit)
- Windows Vista (32-bit & 64-bit)
- Windows 7 (32-bit & 64-bit)
SecurityKISS needs TAP-Win32 Adapter in order to function correctly. It will be installed when you start installing SecurityKISS. You should select “Continue Anyway” on the warning message window. Other than that, installation is very simple and should be straight forward.
One thing you should keep in mind that SecurityKISS needs administrative previleges in order to run on Windows 7. So you should start the program by right clicking on the program and selecting “Run as Administator”.
Using SecurityKISS is even simpler than installation. You only need to run it as administrator and press the Connect button. This will connect your computer to the SecurityKISS servers via a secure VPN connection.
Please note that the free version only allows you a maximum bandwidth of 300MB/day and you can only browse the Internet through the free account. If you want to download stuff from torrents, you will need to go for a paid version which only costs around $5.
