    I have three questions:

    1. Should I go for proxy or VPN? I want to have fast, stable connection and possibility of going through different countries (mostly Europe and US, maybe extra thing will be IP of some exclusive countries).

    2. If you recommend VPN, which should I consider? Market is full of VPN, when you put to the Google I have no idea which I should take.

    2.a I have no idea about characteristic of good VPN, someone told me that good if I can run on dynamic IP. Any, other important advantages of good VPN?

    HideMyAss VPN is a popular one which I think many BHW users have had good experience with.

    Depends what you want to use it for? If it's for a software, then proxies are better as each thread can have it's own IP/connection.

    But you should check out HMA VPN... The best of the best:

    you should define telly choose a VPN:
    - more secure
    - faster
    - encryption provided
    - works also for web app not only for browsers

    i recommend ibvpn - $4.95/month

    Did you try HMA? Just interesting how do you find ibvpn comparing to HMA

    What about IP change? Is it changing every X minutes or only on reconnect?

    :) cheaper

    both works great but ibVPN has the price advantage.
    i don't like ip change products and proxies because are slowing down my internet connection.

    -Purchase a package that support PPTP, L2TP and SSTP

    -For your Mobile Device you can use the L2TP protocol and for your laptop the SSTP protocol if it's support windows 7 or vista.

    -If you have the SSTP configurated on your laptop with one/two clicks you are connected with the service. Very easy.

    StrongVPN and HMA are high advertised VPN's witch countries give allot of attention to get it blocked, try a VPN like VpnAccounts or other..

    For more information go check out VPN websites. like one what i've typed before 'VpnAccounts'

    I also use HMA. They have a holiday special going on for the next 15 days where you can lock in the price if you auto-renew at $9.99/month. They also provide a big list of public proxies for blasts and such. Finally, last time I checked (it's been a while) you can install their service on your router so everything in your home going through it is encrypted without having to put software on the device itself.

    Hi, To add on to the last question. If one can use HMA for all Scrapebox features, does that mean we do not have to scrape for and test proxies with Scrapebox? In other words can one then uncheck the proxy check-box for harvesting and posting via HMA.?

    For this question I know the answer :D: NO, they'll ban you.

    I want to use them only for encryption part when I'm paranoid:
    computer > VPN > public proxy > internet

    1 Warning about HMA - they will give up your a**. Remember the hacker case with Sony, they gave up his information. I'm sure most would but if you do a search torrentfreak has a good review of VPN's that won't give you up.
