I'm looking for a good program that can rival the features provided by PD- Proxy which are advertised as:

  • a premium user can choose multiple servers located in different locations around the world.

  • Connection will not restart every hour

  • Unlimited bandwidth

Any free Linux apps? Thanks in advance

You can use the TOR network if anonymity is what you're looking for. Basically, "Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. It also enables software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features" (quoted from the official website). TOR provides a client for Ubuntu, you can download it here.

I'm browsing for free using the 100mb free daily data allowance from PD- Proxy. Does this app work the same way PD- Proxy does? – Mysterio Jun 23 '12 at 15:10
Technically, the technology used in TOR isn't the same as PD- Proxy, but if you're using PD- Proxy just for browsing anonymousely, TOR is better because it offers unlimited bandwidth since it is a P2P network. – Yusuf Felly Jun 23 '12 at 15:48
It seems 12.04 is not supported 8.04 to 11.04 is listed – Mysterio Jun 23 '12 at 17:29

Another option if you want a VPN is openVPN There pricing is based more on data than by month though

Or you could download and set up your own openvpn server This is a guide for 10.04 server

You can use wi-free, the have an almost similar pricing to pd proxy. Their software connects faster than pd proxy.
