VPN Tunneling. For example, Windows VPN connections can use Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) packets to encapsulate and send private network traffic, such as TCP/IP traffic over a public network such as the Internet. For PPTP and Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP), a tunnel is similar to a session.
Regarding this, what is a VPN tunneling protocol?
Virtual private network technology is based on the idea of tunneling. VPN tunneling involves establishing and maintaining a logical network connection (that may contain intermediate hops). For Internet-based VPNs, packets in one of several VPN protocols are encapsulated within Internet Protocol (IP) packets.
What is mobile tunneling?
Tunneling. The Mobile Node sends packets using its home IP address, effectively maintaining the appearance that it is always on its home network. Even while the Mobile Node is roaming on foreign networks, its movements are transparent to correspondent nodes.
What is an IP tunnel?
An IP tunnel is an Internet Protocol (IP) network communications channel between two networks. It is used to transport another network protocol by encapsulation of its packets. Another prominent use is to connect islands of IPv6 installations across the IPv4 Internet.
