VPN Gate Overview

VPN Gate Academic Experiment Project is an online service as an academic research at the Graduate School of University of Tsukuba, Japan. The purpose of this research is to expand the knowledge of "Global Distributed Public VPN Relay Servers" .

Why VPN Gate?

You can take three advantages if you use VPN Gate:

You can bypass the government's firewall to browse oversea web sites (e.g. YouTube).
You can camouflage your IP address to hide the source of sending information over Internet.
You can protect use of Wi-Fi with strong encryption.

Unlike existing VPN services, VPN Gate has strong resistance against firewalls.
VPN Gate is free of charge. No user registrations required.


VPN Gate Public VPN Relay Servers

There is a list of Public VPN Relay Servers on the VPN Gate Academic Project Web Site.
Anyone on the Internet can connect a VPN connection to any VPN servers on the list.
No user registrations are required.

Would this be safe to use for downloading torrents?
That's what I'm wondering. I'm sure it's "safe", but I don't know if they'll have enough bandwidth available to make it useful.

Yeah..through JAPAN of all places? Where they take copyright infringement even MORE seriously than we do.


If this was through like China where they don't give a crap, then sure, but Japan, not a good idea...especially since they keep logs.

Dang. I was hoping this wouldn't go to slick/fw. Ah well, it was good while it lasted (been using it for almost 2 months now). I use it to watch BBC and Japan-only restricted streaming content. Oh and to vote for reality show contestants while out of the country Big Grin.
