After the previous we had build your own OpenVPN server on VPS, and after setting up the OpenVPN client on our company so that we can play the Point Blank Revolution Garena game, the advantage of having our own OpenVPN server is that we can create as many users as we want. And we can use it for all the devices we have, such as desktop computers, laptops, iPads, iPhones, Android phones & tablets, etc.
