Welcome To Using A Virtual Private Network for Secure Internet Data Transfer Tutorial!!

Data sent across the public Internet is generally not protected from prying eyes, but you can make your Internet communications secure and extend your private network with a virtual private network (VPN) connection. A VPN connection uses encryption and tunneling to transfer data securely on the Internet to a remote access VPN server on your workplace network. Using a VPN helps you save money by using the public Internet instead of making long—distance phone calls to connect securely with your private network.

To make a VPN connection, you must be already connected to the Internet. You can make a VPN connection by first dialing an Internet service provider (ISP) or by using an existing connection to the Internet.

If you connect to the Internet using a dial–up connection, you first connect to your ISP and then you make a VPN connection to the private network's VPN server. After the VPN connection is established, you can access the private network.

If you are already connected to the Internet—on a local area network, a cable modem, or a digital subscriber line (DSL)—you can make a VPN connection directly to the VPN server.
