Connect to a VPN Network

A virtual private network (VPN) is a temporary connection that extends a private network across a public network, encrypting data transmission to provide security.

When working outside the office, you can use a VPN to securely access your company's Intranet.

The following types of servers are supported:

  • PPTP: Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol, offering MPPE encryption.
  • L2TP: Layer 2 (Data Link Layer) Tunneling Protocol, offering IPSec PSK and IPSec RSA encryption.
  • IPSec Xauth: Offering PSK, RSA, and Hybrid RSA encryption.
