VPN Gate: Free Public Access VPNs

VPN Gate provides free access to a large network of volunteer operated VPN servers. In a failed attempt to enforce censorship, certain countries have blocked direct access to the VPN Gate server directory. In response, this page provides links to the latest VPN Gate mirror sites. Direct downloads of VPN Gate's OpenVPN server files is also available here.

VPN Gate OpenVPN Configs

VPN Gate OpenVPN servers are blocked by censors within minutes of going online. Therefore, we have stopped coverage of servers using the OpenVPN protocol. Coverage mar resume if effective obfuscation methods are implemented by the developers of OpenVPN.

VPN Gate users in China should consider these hints to save time and connect more easily:

  • Subscribe to the VPN Gate mirror emails. The main website is blocked, and email is a good way to get access to fresh server lists.
  • OpenVPN servers, without protocol obfuscation, will be accessible for merely a minutes from within China. Until the developers implement effective obfuscation methods, forget about OpenVPN.
  • L2TP/IPSec servers seem to last longer, but may possibly be compromised by the Chinese censors.
  • Find working servers by pinging the servers' IP address before trying to connect. If the server responds, it is accessible for VPN service.
  • Be flexible and attempt to connect through different countries. Servers in the USA, Canada, Japan, and the United Kingdom are top targets for blocking. Results are best for servers in non-English speaking countries.
  • Never ever quit. Never surrender to the Golden Shield Project; it will fail.
