What is the difference between SSL and PPTP and IPSEC VPN?  Print this Article

SSL VPN allows a user to create a secure tunnel from the remote desktop to Server24's Private Network using a OpenVPN client. It is compatible with a variety of operating systems and also has apps for smartphones available.

PPTP VPN allows the same secure tunnel but connects using specialized client software on a user's desktop or dedicated device. PPTP VPN is a great solution for users unable to utilize an SSL connection.
IPSEC VPN allows to connect your entire office network to Server24's private network.
