What is VPN?
A virtual private network (VPN) extends a private network across public networks like the Internet. It enables a host computer to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if they were an integral part of the private network with all the functionality, security and management policies of the private network. This is done by establishing a virtual point-to-point connection through the use of dedicated connections, encryption, or a combination of the two.
VPNs provide security by the use of tunneling protocols and through security procedures such as encryption. The VPN security model provides:
• confidentiality such that even if the network traffic is sniffed at the packet level, an attacker would only see encrypted data
• sender authentication to prevent unauthorized users from accessing the VPN.
• message integrity to detect any instances of tampering with transmitted messages
There are four primary use-cases utilizing VSP VPN technology:
• Securing remote and mobile user access to internet, intranet, and cloud resources
• Enabling secure communication amongst remote and mobile users
• Securing connectivity between enterprise intranet and cloud resources residing in public IaaS
• Enabling secure private access to PaaS applications
How to order?
We have created a template with all the required software to use VPS as PPTP VPN server. You can order it just from our web page by choosing appropriate template from offered systems. The name of the template would be CentOS 6 with PPTP VPN.
You won’t need to enable any specific kernel modules in it, it will be enabled already. So you will be able to use VPN right after it’s creation.
How to setup VPN server?
Just after creation of VPS with PPTP VPN you will get credentials from the system:
