I recently became responsible for looking after a group of servers, and am now trying to add a new one. The existing servers all have CloudVPN running, but I can find almost no information about it. Does anyone know where it is available, or what a good alternative would be (that would not require any/much downtime)? Thanks.

Maybe have a look at wikipedia regarding CloudVPN (

If you need some VPN solution you can use OpenVPN (

The wiki page says the project was last updated 4 years ago, and links to an external page which does not exist any more. That (and a lot of other searching) is why I said "I can find almost no information". – Inukshuk Aug 9 '13 at 20:04
IMHO it's time to change your vpn solution and give OpenVPN a chance. Have you seen the Link from wikipedia? If yes... have you done some research on the site? -> – deagh Aug 9 '13 at 20:08
Yes, I am ready to change - but only if I have to - I don't want to take the whole website offline while re-configuring the VPN if it is not necessary. I did not see that specific page on - I only saw either commentary, or links that did not work, so thank you for that. Is OpenVPN what people really use? At a minimum of $60/year? I only need to connect the servers to each other, not tunnel into them privately. – Inukshuk Aug 9 '13 at 20:26
