Testing HideMyAss! Pro VPN on DD-WRT

HideMyAss is generally a great service with many, many servers.   They offer almost every protocol imaginable.   They also have great customer service.  However they still have a ways to go with DD-WRT integration.   There are multiple installation options using PPTP, L2TP or OpenVPN over UCP or TCP.   All methods require filling in Setup menus.   OpenVPN setup requires either pulling their script from their server or copying and pasting.  Only so many services offer PPTP, so if your router can’t run OpenVPN they might be the only show in town though you really should get a better router.

Pricing seems reasonable:

Update: HMA has released their 2012 Summer Sports Special with pricing discounts up to 36%.

They are UK based and had some recent bad PR related to Anonymous.   They were publicly identified as an attack route that Anonymous used and shortly thereafter some Anonymous members were arrested allegedly based on HMA logs.   Some people were very upset, but the facts are users publicly admitted using their services for illegal activities and the authorities subp0enaed HMA and got the information they wanted.   Would other providers do this?   Maybe, maybe not.

What can’t be debated is that HMA has servers blanketing the planet in countries that other providers aren’t even close to expanding into.   In Europe and the US there are multiple servers in major cities and lots of servers even in minor cities.   Their customer service is responsive and there PC software is well put together.

At this time I can’t wholeheartly recommend HMA! Pro VPN for DD-WRT router use unless you have a special circumstance like your router can’t run OpenVPN.   If they were to offer better integration they would be a great choice though,
