    iPad does support VPN. Go to Settings>General>VPN and you will see this VPN set up screen.

    While I don't use it myself (yet), I've been told that Cloak provides one of the best, most hassle free, VPN solutions for iOS. One subscription covers all your computers and/or mobile devices.

    The advice came, mostly, from a person who can and does set up his own VPN servers, but found Cloak to be much easier to deal with when traveling.

    While I would imagine the primary purpose of the iPad VPN client is to connect to corporate networks, if you have a decent home router that offers a VPN server, such as the higher end of the Draytek Vigor range, you can set up your iPad to Setup a VPN tunnel to your home network, through which you can browse. I usually do this when I'm using open Wireless networks. Strangely VOIP apps sometimes work better through this route than directly via the open network.:confused:

    If your primary purpose is to obfuscate your origin, then a number of paid VPN providers are available offering servers in various countries
