Olof from Slinkware here. Slink does not use port 22. By default it uses a random high port. However, you can configure any port you want in the Preference Pane. Also Slink supports HTTP or SOCKS...

I disagree. As I would :)

iVPN and other L2TP/IPSEC solution are certainly not plug'n'play. For example:

besson3c,
