How to VPN while traveling

I'm going to be traveling a fair amount over the holidays which means I'll likely be on public WiFi a lot more than usual, and with all of the various security and privacy issues that have popped up in the news recently, I figure the time is ripe to figure out a VPN strategy (since not everything I do is over SSL/HTTPS).

I much like my head. I don't want to see it removed just yet.

I am looking for advice to come up with a technological solution for a physician’s office in NB, Canada.

Please help me configure and secure my Ubuntu-based combined home file server/public web server/VNC server!

Please help me configure and secure my Ubuntu-based combined home file server/public web server/VNC server! I am building a low-ish power home file server, which will likely run Ubuntu 11.04 or 11.10 (possibly server edition), and I should be able to set up a basic samba share easily enough. But I would also like to use the same computer to serve a few basic webpages, and I would like to provide ssh and ideally VNC or RDP-like access from outside the LAN. I can probably get the basic software set up, but I'm a n00b when it comes to NAT stuff, firewalls, and security issues generally. I would also appreciate help with setting up dynamic DNS.

VPN on iOS - app restart needed?

Sort of interesting Apple security question: I have a VPN that I trust. When I use an iOS device (4.2.1 on iPad or 3GS) I often have Safari running most of the time. If I use Safari for an innocuous task, background it, initiate a VPN connection, and then go back to Safari to use eg. internet banking, does my web traffic pass through the VPN, or should I "kill" Safari and restart it? I use IP-restricted academic journal access sometimes and have noticed I have to restart Safari sometimes to be allowed to see articles, and it got me wondering. Clever paranoid opinions much appreciated!

Losing my (free WiFi) connection

When I start a wifi session (at a coffee shop for instance), the bubble will say "additional login may be required" which, when I open a web page, is just an "I accept" disclaimer. BUT, when I have to turn off the computer (reboot for windows update, go to the bathroom, etc) and then try to re-establish contact, it won't work. I can't get connected and I can't get the login screen. I've tried everything I can think of to get it to work but it just seems like I have to come back the next day. Any tricks to get me back on?
