Configure VPN Access tutorials


  • Now itís time for VPN - Virtual Private Network

  • Describe VPNs.

  • Tunneling protocols used in VPNs.

  • VPN reconnect.

  • Configure a VPN.

  • Describe the Connection Manager Administration Kit.

  • Describe the options for creating a connection profile.

  • Create a connection profile.



  • A VPN (Virtual Private Network) provides Point-to-Point connection between private network, through a public network such as Internet.

  • It enables a host computer to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if it were a private network with all the functionality, security and management policy of the private network.

  • This is done by establishing a virtual Point-to-Point connection through the use of dedicated connection, encryption or by using both.

  • VPN connection across the internet is technically a WAN (Wide Area Network) link between the sites, but appears to the user as a private network link and thatís why it is called Virtual Private Network.

  • As Packets travel through the Public network, Data is Encrypted to ensure confidentiality.

  • The link in which the private data is encapsulated and encrypted is known as VPN connection.

  • There are two types of VPN connection.

    1. Remote Access

    2. Site-to-Site

Remote Access VPN

  • Remote access VPN connections enable users working at home, client sites or from public wireless access points to access a server on your organizationís private network.

  • They can connect to Organizationís server by using public network such as Internet.

  • From userís perspective, VPN is a Point-to-Point connection between the computer VPN client and Organizationís server.

  • The exact infrastructure of the shared or public network is irrelevant because it appears logically as if the data is sent over a dedicated private link.


Site-to-Site VPN

  • Site-to-site VPN connections is also known as router-to-router VPN connections.

  • It enables Organization to have routed connections between separate offices or premises over a public networks by maintaining secure communications.

  • A routed VPN connection across the Internet logically operates as a dedicated wide area network (WAN) link.

  • When networks connect over the Internet, a router forwards packets to another router across a VPN connection.

  • To the routers, the VPN connection operates as a data-link layer link.

  • A site-to-site VPN connection connects two portions of a private network and both routers authenticate themself.

  • In a site-to site VPN connection, the packets sent from either router across the VPN connection typically do not originate at the routers.


VPN Connection Properties

  • VPN connections that uses the PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol), L2TP / IPsec (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol with Internet Protocol Security) or SSTP (Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol) have following properties.



  • With VPN technology, private data is encapsulated with a header that provides routing information, which allows the data to traverse the transit network.



  • Authentication for VPN connections takes three different forms.

  • User-level authentication by using PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) authentication

  • To establish the VPN connection, the VPN server authenticates the VPN client that is attempting the connection by using a PPP user-level authentication method, and verifying that the VPN client has the appropriate authorization.

  • If you use mutual authentication, the VPN client also authenticates the VPN server, which provides protection against computers that are posing as VPN servers.

  • Computer-level authentication by using IKE (Internet Key Exchange)

  • To establish an IPsec security association, the VPN client and the VPN server use the IKE protocol to exchange either computer certificates or a pre-shared key.

  • In either case, the VPN client and server authenticate each other at the computer level.

  • We recommend computer-certificate authentication, because it is a much stronger authentication method.

  • Computer-level authentication is only performed for L2TP/IPsec connections.

  • Data origin authentication and data integrity

  • To verify that the data sent on the VPN connection originated at the connectionís other end and was not modified in transit, the data contains a cryptographic checksum based on an encryption key known only to the sender and the receiver.

  • Data origin authentication and data integrity are only available for L2TP/IPsec connections.
