Using OpenVPN instead of PPTP to connect to IPredator brings different advantages:
- The security offered by OpenVPN is a lot better than the one provided by PPTP
- OpenVPN works way better with NAT in between, no port-forwarding or special router settings are needed
- OpenVPN improves the connection stability when dealing with lossy or high latency network paths
- It can be used through HTTP proxies if you suffer from limited connectivity
Having OpenVPN available does not mean that connecting via PPTP is totally obsolete. PPTP is still supported to be able to connect with devices where OpenVPN clients are not available.
