I have tried ultrasurf and it no longer works. What's a VPN client that is portable and still works? HTTPS would be nice, however it's not needed...

I don't have admin on the computers I'll use this on, so any VPN that doesn't require them will be nice.

What do you mean by "it no longer works"? –  Ramhound Apr 5 '13 at 17:08
    
@Ramhound It used to say "Connected to server (server)". Now it just says "Unable to connect to server". Also, I just checked their website and it's down. –  Chipperyman Apr 5 '13 at 17:10

Try using the openVPN portable (from here) and a portable browser installed on a portable USB thumb drive. I have read that this can get around any logging.

Finding a decent VPN service that is free, (like ultrasurf was), is difficult to near impossible. If it's vital that you have a VPN, I recommend you think about investing in a premium VPN service.

Sites that block anonimizers (ultrasurf, hotspot shield, etc...) generally don't touch premium services (in my experience). If you use one a lot, you'll find it's a worthy investment, (so much faster and stable), and it doesn't cost that much.

I myself use AceVPN and am incredibly satisfied with it. You will need VPN service account details to use openVPN, so it's probably best you start shopping around for a service.

As for free service alternatives similar to Ultrasurf, I'm afraid I do not know of any.
