What VPN protocol is better

WorldVPN Protocol




Background

OpenVPN
OpenVPN is an advanced open source VPN solution backed by the company 'OpenVPN technologies' and which is now the de-facto standard in the open source networking space. It uses the mature SSL/TLS encryption protocols.


L2TP
An advanced protocol formally standardized in IETFRFC 3193 and now the recommended replacement for PPTP where secure data encryption is required.


PPTP
A very basic VPN protocol based on PPP. PPTP was the first VPN protocol supported on the Microsoft Windows platform.

Data Encryption

OpenVPN
OpenVPN uses the OpenSSL library to provide encryption.OpenSSL supports a number of different cryptographic algorithms such as 3DES, AES, RC5, Blowfish. WorldVPN implements the extremely secure AESalgorithm with 256 bit keys.


L2TP
L2TP is encrypted using the standardized IPSec protocol. WorldVPN uses 256 bit encryption system.


PPTP
PPTP uses the RSA RC4 encryption algorithm. ibVPN uses 128 bits MPPE encryption system.

Setup

OpenVPN
OpenVPN is not included in any operating system release and requires the installation of client software. The software installers are very user friendly and installation typically takes less than 5 minutes.


L2TP
L2TP can be manually configured using the in build Protocol systems avaialble on most Operating Systems.


PPTP
PPTP can be manually configured using the in build Protocol systems avaialble on most Operating Systems.

Speed

OpenVPN
OpenVPN can deliver the fastest speeds when used with the default UDP protocol. WorldVPN used the UDP protocol in the OpenVPN configuration files. WorldVPN experience can say that OpenVPN can provide the best performance in terms of speed.


L2TP
As L2TP encapsulates the data twice, it can decrease the speed, in some situations.


PPTP
PPTP can provide better performance then L2TP, not really noticeable in some situations.

Accessibility \ Ports

OpenVPN
OpenVPN can be easily configured to run on any port using either UDP or TCP. This is why it can be accessed within internet censorship countries.


L2TP
L2TP uses TCP port 1701. L2TP/IPSec is easier to block than OpenVPN due to its reliance on fixed protocols and port.


PPTP
PTP uses TCP port 1723 and GRE (Protocol 47). PPTP can be easily blocked by restricting the GRE protocol

Stability

OpenVPN
Very stable and fast over wireless, and other non reliable networks where packet loss and congestion is common.


L2TP
L2TP/IPSec has shown itself it be as reliable and stable as OpenVPN.


PPTP
PPTP is not as realiable, nor does it recover as quickly as OpenVPN over unstable network connections.

Security

OpenVPN
OpenVPN has no major vulnerabilities. It is considered the safest VPN protocol


L2TP
L2TP has no major vulnerabilities. It is considered the safest VPN protocol next to the OpenVPN.


PPTP
PPTP has some security weaknesses but is nothing to get woried about. We do recommend using the OpenVPN.

Compatibility

OpenVPN
OpenVPN is compatible with most Operating Systems, including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android, even DD-WRT and Tomato. However, at this moment OpenVPN is not compatible on the iOS or Android, as "jailbreak" will be needed for this devices.


L2TP
L2TP is an in-build VPN protocol for most Operating Systems including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android and some mobile devices, but it lacks compatibility with some routers (non compatible with DD-WRT).


PPTP
As PPTP is an in-build protocol on many Operating Systems including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android and some mobile devices, it is the most compatible VPN protocols, above L2TP. Above all is DD-WRT compatible.

Conclusion

OpenVPN
WorldVPN most recommended VPN protocol. Very accessible, easy to use and provides a high security level of encryption, thus making it by far the best VPN protocol.


L2TP
Second best recommended VPN protocol, as in terms of speed is slightly less performant then the OpenVPN.


PPTP
Recommended there where neither the OpenVPN or L2TP can be used (due to its DD-WRT compatibility).
