VPN Protocols

There are many different types of protocols available for a VPN connection. We will discuss the most common types so that our readers will know which one to buy:


This is the most commonly used VPN protocol. They allow authorized remote users to connect to the VPN network with their existing Internet connection and then they can log on to the VPN using password authentication


SSTP VPN  is very similar to PPTP. But in this type there is no dedicated line in use. It makes sites of different kind of the same organization to connect together and form a VPN. In this type the routing, encryption and decryption is done by the routers on both ends


L2TP is very similar to PPTP it doesn’t provide encryption and it relies on PPP protocol to do this.

4: IPsec

It is tried so that’s why we can have trust in it. it sets up a tunnel from the remote site into your central site. It is designed for IP traffic. And it is very expensive.


SSL VPN can access VPN via https over web browser. SSL creates a secure session. The best thing about it is that you do not need any software for it because it uses the web browser as the client application.


A few companies have merged the features of SSL and IPSec and other types of VPN to make this unique type. These can accept connections from multiple types of VPN clients. They are expensive. They offer flexibility at both client and server levels.
