 It depends on what you want to use it for---if you are thinking a substitute for scrambled eggs, you would want to use some of the above suggestions, or you can make scrambled tofu.
If you are using the eggs for baking, the best substitute is flaxmeal (ground flaxseed). 2 Tbsp. Flaxmeal to 3 Tbsp. water.

Commercial egg substitute is just egg white, with either a reduced amount of yolk mixed back in or a touch of other oil and flavoring and coloring. If you don't like that answer, I'd suggest looking for vegetarian/vegan equivalents of the recipe you'd want to use the eggs in. I don't think there's a simple 1:1 replacement for all the mechanical and chemical properties of egg white.

A simple egg "substitute" is to mix three egg whites with one egg yolk to make approximately two eggs. Makes a pretty fair omelet or scrambled eggs with more protein than two eggs, but half the fat. Prfesser
