    Hi all,

    As I really can't understand what a vpn really is, just some beginner/noob questions and hopefully someone can explain it to me so I understand it in the future.

    At the moment I use Massplanner with some instagram accounts on it. I'm looking for a vpn right now because in that case MP will run 24/7 even when my computer is off. (correct me if i'm wrong). Currently MP is only working when my pc is on.

    When I buy/create/install a vpn it's a program on my computer where I have to upload some MP files right?
    When I let MP run on the vpn, is it for me still possible to see the progress of the accounts on MP installed on my own pc? If you understand my question.

    My proxies currently working fine, so I guess i don't have to change anything about that?

    Any other tips/tricks?

    thanks in advance

    VPN and VPS are two different things entirely. You are using the terms interchangeably which they are not.

    VPN is just a way to route all your traffic encrypted through a server before it reaches its final destination. It will help mask your real IP and location.

    A VPS is a server that you have shared access to. You have more control than shared hosting with a VPS because you are given an administrator account where you can install and run custom software or really anything you want.

    What are you trying to accomplish?

    As mentionned VPN isn't a VPS.

    See the VPS as a remote computer which has an excellent internet connection allowing you to outsource some of your work to free up your computers ressources, to not tie you to keep your computer turned on, and to run tools more efficiently thanks to dedicated ressources and great uploading /downloading speed.

    A VPN is just like a proxy but encrypted used by companies to access a secured network or end users for encrypt their connection.

    VPN ( Virtual private network) can be created over your ISP connection. It could encrypt all your traffic and hide your IP.
    But today, i recommend you to see what is RDP. May be it will be better for you/

    I think the OP mean VPS. You can order a Windows VPS and run your Massplanner there 24/7 with no problem.

    Like others said what you do need is a VPS not a VPN. Also it has to be a Windows VPS since you want to run Massplanner.

    So basically what you get is a computer which runs nonstop and has a bigger interest connection than your home account. Plus you get massive amount of Bandwidth. You can remotely access to this computer (Through Remote Desktop function in your PC) and just setup and run things like do you in your own PC.
