Can't find any free VPN provider for Ubuntu. I tried looking into old questions but they seem to be outdated.

If you mean VPN Clients check this:

PPTP (Microsoft VPN)

sudo apt-get install network-manager-pptp

Cisco VPN

sudo apt-get install network-manager-vpnc

OpenVPN

sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn

If you mean VPN Servers check this:

OpenVPN

What is the use of setting up a VPN server? Can it give better security? –  Jitin Kinger Sep 22 '12 at 8:06
    
VPN Server is used to give VPN clients access to your local private network and allow them to initiate connections to your network –  user91632 Sep 22 '12 at 8:22
    
did my answer just work for you? –  user91632 Sep 22 '12 at 8:41
    
PPTP is installed by default and is enough to get BestFreeVpn working. So your answer didn't work :) –  Jitin Kinger Sep 22 '12 at 11:16

Another vpn provider's services that work on Ubuntu are those by a company called Securitykiss. However, the free user is only allowed 300 mb per day, but this may be enough if you are using it in a cyber cafe, for example, to secure your connection.

The setup of Securitykiss requires much more effort than bestfreevpn, so it is up to you which service you choose. You can either use PPTP (instructions here) or openvpn (instructions here).

Before you can follow either of these sets of instructions, however, you need to get a configuration generated for Linux based systems from here and then log on to the client area here and download your package which contains further configuration details.

Securitykiss takes a bit to setup and is limited to 300mb for the free user, but is an example of a 'free' vpn service, of which there are very few 'free' examples out there.

I have just been experimenting with it and wanted to bring it to the attention of the community, as it does work successfully on Ubuntu and the instructions on the site are tailored to Ubuntu so I thought it might be of interest.

Our VPN service, ThreatSpike Dome not only supports Ubuntu but is entirely run on Ubuntu. We find it a fantastic operating system for both development and production environments.

Our service is free to use and specifically for Ubuntu we support Xauth pre-shared key authentication using VPNC.
