What is PPTP VPN?
Understanding PPTP VPN
PPTP is Point-to-point Tunneling Protocol, which is a network protocol which makes us possible to send data safely from remote client to private enterprise server by making VPN (Virtual Private Network) through network date based on TCP/IP. While VPN is a private connection through public network (internet). Here are some descriptions about VPN:
· In VPN, all the things happen is virtual. There is no real network connection between 2 points which is connected.
· Private. VPN is private network where not every person can access it. Data will be sent in encryption mode although through public network.
We can imagine that we are making a network in a network (tunnel). Tunneling is a way to create private channel by using infrastructure of tunneling technology.

By using VPN, we can access a computer or office network, from anywhere while connected to the internet.
By using VPN connections, we can browse safely when using public Internet access as a hotspot or internet cafe.
· Save the cost of network setup
VPN can be used as an alternative technology to connect local network area with a relatively small cost, because data transmission using VPN technology media existing public network without the need to build a personal network.
Well, those are the information for you. Hopefully the information above will be useful for you.
