What is PPTP VPN Service ?
PPTP VPN service – Point to Point Tunneling Protocol is a method for implementing virtual private networks. PPTP service uses a control channel over TCP and a GRE tunnel operating to encapsulate PPP packets.
PPTP assumes the availability of an IP internetwork between a PPTP client and a PPTP server, The PPTP client might already be attached to an IP internetwork that can reach the PPTP server, or the PPTP client might have to dial into a network access server (NAS) to establish IP connectivity as in the case of dial-up Internet users.
The PPTP service specification does not describe encryption or authentication features and relies on the Point-to-Point Protocol being tunneled to implement security functionality. However, the most common PPTP implementation, shipping with the Microsoft Windows product families, implement various levels of authentication and encryption natively as standard features of the Windows PPTP stack. The intended use of this protocol is to provide security levels and remote access levels comparable with typical VPN products.
By using PPTP, a large organization with distributed offices can create a large local area network (LAN ) – essentially a VPN – by using the infrastructure of a wide area network (WAN), like the network of a public Internet service provider (ISP) or telecom. This is more cost-effective than laying out a network infrastructure over such distances.
