Configure the VPN client

A virtual private network (VPN) is an enterprise network established on the public network. The enterprise network has the same security, management, and functions as the private network. It can be considered as a virtual private line of an enterprise. For example, a user can connect to the intranet of the enterprise through the VPN network in another area, and the data will be encrypted.
