What is a VPN tunnel?

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunnel virtually connects your computer to another network. Regarding ARN's VPN tunnels, it looks as if your equipment was connected with a cable plugged directly into the server cabinet of our association.

The websites you visit, the emails you receive, the messages you send, and basically all your online activities, will be seen as coming out of ARN's servers.

When should you use a VPN?

Short notice : ARN VPNs are not a solution for anonymity or geolocation outside of France. For this, take a look at Tor Browser instead.

Secure your connection

To avoid "Wi-Fi sniffing", i.e. the tapping of your connection by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), and also to protect your data when you use a public Wi-Fi.


These VPNs are designed for self-hosting (including emails) and are compatible with YunoHost and Internet bricks.

Unbridle your connection

Prevent Net Neutrality violations by your ISP, return of the beloved good old Internet…

Geolocate in France

Access contents available only in France from anywhere in the world, by using our connection based in Schiltigheim.

Access to IPv6

ARN VPNs are IPv6 compatible, even if your own network only supports IPv4.
