What context?? Are you looking to load VPN as a service on this CentOS 7 system and use it as a server, or are you asking about which clients are good to use? Or are you asking about commercial VPN services to sign up for/use?

OpenVPN is pretty much the 'standard', and is well supported and documented for CentOS.

Proton or Windscribe. These would cost you not even a single penny. However, it's better to read and compare the features of all available free vpns for linux, centos or mint. Here is the list in which Proton is on top and my choice as well.

@hawkeyesc72, CentOS does not have many options for VPN connections if you are setting it up from networkmanager applet (aka GUI). This is weird as it's the only distro that I have come across which does not support openvpn protocol in it's NM applet.

However, using openvpn protocol from the CLI works like a charm. Have a look here - https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...os-4175632515/
