    From my experience proxies are not very reliable and kind of slow. VPN services tend to do a better job overall and are somewhat more safe. I`m using this one for some time now:, it`s pretty fast and user friendly.

      It is unlikely your VNP will be as secure as either Ultrasurf or UltraVNC, which are by the same people. For those who are curious, go to the Ultrasurf Website and do extensive surfing on the subject. There are many issues, and much to be learned. Combinations of Ultrasurf and JonDonym or Ultrasurf and AdvOR are excellent solutions. Better than any other solution other than possibly using all three of the above simultaneously. Ultrasurf anonymizes only the browser. UltraVNC anonymizes the entire computer and all connections it makes. The security issue with typical VNCs is that though the data is encrypted, they can be traced back to the user, and are not specifically designed to circumvent government censorship of internet usage. Though yours may be so designed, Ultrasurf has been around quite a while and rigorously developed.
