thanks for the reply.
I need vpn server to provide software connectivity to the clients.
This is trading software.

I have installed & used OpenVpn on my test setup.
It is working fine.

I prefer non-encryption vpn.
If I use openvpn, it will require more processing power than poptop.
I guess creating backup server might become difficult as it works on ssl 
cert. cert created on server1 might not work with server2. Whereas in 
poptop I need to copy single file (chap-secrets).

I am trying testing poptop, if there any better vpn server available 
kindly let me know.
