For you people that have been around a bit longer than me.
When was VPN created as a technology/did it start being used?
I have been hearing different possibilities and I was wondering of any of the experts here know the answer
PPTP is a remote access VPN, and it's developed by Microsoft (so VPN connection is from client's PC to a gateway device):
IPSec can be done in 2 flavours, ie:
1) LAN-to-LAN tunnel - VPN is terminated between 2 gateways
2) Remote access VPN - similar to PPTP, but IPSec is the underlying technology.
