"This article is intended to deal with creating Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) to connect a home

network with the outside world. In the course of this slightly more advanced PCstats guide we will

discuss the nature of VPNs, the dangers of the Internet, and the encryption methods involved in

securing yourself from them. It is assumed that you have a basic knowledge of the meaning behind

networking terms such as IP addresses, Local and wide area networks, firewalls, etc. A VPN

incorporates two features, encryption and tunneling , to ensure that the data is delivered safely

and privately across the public space."
