Hi All, I'm interested to obtain an paid elite proxy or VPN service. I'm still quite new to all of this and I wondered if anyone would be kind enough to explain to me the finer points of anonymity. What is the difference between usung a VPN service and a Proxy service? (Rhetorical, I know basically how both work) more to the point:- What are the issues of using either and which is better? Maybe it is a case of horses for courses or maybe if you could afford it, you should use both if money were no object (Thinking out loud). Maybe I'm missing the point of how they should be used respectively? I found an ok sounding VPN service and a Proxy service that I'm interested in, anyone have any experience with them? What do you all think?
