    I heard proxies vrs VPN, but not really sure if VPN is a good fit on A dedicated server? I heard it slows down the server and speed quiet a bit.

    Not sure, does anyone have any idea on that? I am just new to all of this.

    Thanks

    Like the others have said, what will you be doing with it?

    To be honest, as far as I can see OpenVPN and proxies such as Squid have a little overhead but nothing that will slow down a proxy. The speed, if you are just using its a VPN won't matter.

    Even bandwidth wise, the connection from your computer to the server will be the bottleneck. Server connections are a lot better than your internet connection so that won't slow anything down either.

    Its a bit of a vague question you asked to be honest

    OpenVPN won't slow you down at all. I was worried about something similar, but honestly I can't even tell it's there. There might be a difference amongst providers, but I can't say that I've noticed any sort of latency issues like I feared at all. On the other hand, proxies would probably be much easier to use. If you're using it with GSA it'll be a lot easier to just load a list of proxies, instead of trying to sign on and off of your VPN everytime you want a new IP. I'm not terribly familiar with GSA though, so if it has a way to work directly with a VPN then that may not be an issue.

    An affordable dedicated server with a great network will perform great. OpenVPN is great for a quick connection with minimal latency overhead.
