If you don’t mind tinkering, setting up your own VPN server for your home is relatively easy. Especially if you take advantage of Turnkey Linux’s pre-built openvpn appliance. If you aren’t familiar with Turnkey, I highly recommend you head over to http://www.turnkeylinux.org/openvpn to check them out.
I recently set this up at home; for obvious reasons (media content, data, services etc). I have to say I am impressed with how well packaged the appliance was. Great documentation, well setup for easy use and sharing VPN profiles. I think in total, I had VPN service working from my iPhone within and hour of sparking up the appliance.
Certainly worth exploring if want to:
- Access your digital content
- Access your personal data
- Access your PC’s at home to do remote work
