    We user the Juniper VPN client for connection from an iPad on a public wi-fi network to our internal corporate network..but I'm not sure why you would use vpn for the apps you've mentioned, particularly Netflix..this functions on the public internet...when I've used Pandora on my (ahem :)) Blackberry, it also seems to work over the public internet....

    Thanks for the info on that. I had no idea that iw would work outside the US. I know it works great within the US. Hope you find a way to work through. Maybe an rdp client of some type would work, ..I imagine you'd need a box with a ip address in the US visible to the internet....I have had good luck using rdp from an IOS device, though as you can imagine data input is not very fun.

    I have used Netflix on the iPad ever since the app came out. I have written a guide on how to set it up - take a look in my signature below.

    Yes I have seen your review before, I was just hoping I could get opinion from more than one person. Looks like I'm out of luck. I don't see why this is not more popular, I guess we need to wait until there is more ipad uses outside of u.s.

    I'm in Singapore and Hotspot Shield works fine for Netflix and Pandora. Haven't tried Hulu yet though. It was extremely easy to set up on mu iPad and Mac.

    I tried hotspot shield. It doesn't work in Dominica, it causes hulu and netflix to stutter severly. In addition hotspot shield has a 2 GB limit per month.

    Hello. There is a VPN-service called VPN4ALL. It is a simple but very powerful program that allows to connect one of 20 (and growing) servers in one click. The servers are very fast. They can provide some extra services like anchor IP, built-in anti-virus, anti-spam and anti-phishing protection. It ranks the first place in the bestvpnreviews.com rating. You may try free trial version of the product: w ww .vpn4all. com/ trial. As to the iPad version, the customer live support says that this version is going to be ready in the end of this year. So, looking forward for it...

    Ok so I got myself strongvpn. It works well for netflix but doesn't work on hulu. Netflix is so much better so i don't care about hulu. By the way my location is the commonwealth of Dominica.

    I'm a USAF servicemember stationed in Japan, and StrongVPN's San Francisco server works great for accessing Netflix streaming content. It would be nice if Netflix would accommodate us without having to resort to faking my IP address, but oh well.

    ipad vpn

    iPad vpn for Internet browsing through public Wi-Fi spots or hotspots, if you are going abroad and you will have to use your home media files securely, emails, Instant messages or just any other data that does not uses SSL encryption can easily be decrypted using ipad vpn.

    Using a VPN in China

    (Just in case you don't know yet, VPN stands for Virtual Private Network)

    Here in China, we use it to bypass the Great Firewall and access our blocked accounts in Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

    I have been using public vpn for several years and while it is not fast, it has worked reliably.
