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.
Here is a regularly updated list of the mirrors. Visit these to get new VPN server addresses as the older IP addresses are blocked!
VPN Gate's L2TP / IPSEC servers are listed below, and can enable connectivity if the more secure OpenVPN servers are blocked. These are operated in fewer numbers, but the small number of servers stay online for weeks at a time.
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 may 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:
VPN Gate is a good system for circumventing internet censorship.

Beware, as China, North Korea, Iran, and Syria appear to be moving in that direction. That will be their loss as the rest of the world moves onward.
