If you are using a Windows computer, there are many different software options available which will allow you to connect to a VPN server. We will not go into great detail about all of the different options here, but some popular choices include OpenVPN, PPTP, L2TP/IPsec, and SSTP. There are also numerous free and paid-for VPN services available which typically provide their own software for Windows users. Once you have chosen your desired method or service, simply follow the instructions provided to get set up.
On macOS and Linux computers, things are slightly different as there are fewer options when it comes to pre-configured software. However, if you don’t mind doing a little bit of work yourself then it is perfectly possible to set up these systems manually too. For instance, OpenVPN can be used on both macOS and Linux by following instructions from their website (https://openvpn.net/community-resources/how-to/#manual). Again, there are also various free and paid-for VPN services available for these platforms if you would prefer not to do things manually.
iOS devices (iPhones and iPads) can connect to VPN servers in two ways; either through an app provided by the service or directly through Settings. Unfortunately Apple does not allow apps to manipulate system-level settings like VPNs so all iOS apps must route traffic through their own servers before connecting out to the internet (which kind of defeats the point). This means that most reputable VPN providers will bypass this issue by providing custom IPsec or IKEv2 configuration files which can be installed directly on your device without needing an app at all! Simply download the required file from your provider’s website then head over to Settings > General > Profile & Device Management where you should see an option to “Install Configuration Profile”, select your downloaded file then follow any further instructions – once installed it should just work! If unsure about anything simply contact your provider’s support team who will be happy help out further
Besides obvious differences between each platform such as graphical user interfaces (Windows being more GUI driven than macOS which is more Terminal based), connecting to a VPN server from each operating system is actually quite similar overall – especially if using OpenVPN as this provides identical command line interfaces across all platforms anyway!
