With point-to-point tunneling protocol
(PPTP), security was too thin, and access was all or nothing; once the tunnel was opened, the whole world had access to JRI's network.
It combines the best of Cisco's Layer 2 Forwarding protocol and Microsoft's Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol
Additional features of the WireSpeed R517 modem include Virtual Private Network (VPN) support via Point-To-Point Tunneling Protocol
(PPTP) for telecommuters who need to access their corporate network from their homes or satellite offices; True Always On feature that allows users to configure modem to remember the system's security password; and Port Forwarding that allows users to safely play gaming applications over the Internet while their local network remains secure.
The prevailing standard for tunneling is Microsoft's Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol
(PPTP), which is supported within Windows 95/98 and Windows NT.
Other alternatives include Microsoft's Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol
(PPTP), and L2TP, which combines PPTP with the similar Cisco Systems' Layer 2 Forwarding Protocol.
Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ:MENT) today announced availability of the Nucleus[R] Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol
Microsoft's point-to-point tunneling protocol
(PPTP) creates tunnels for transporting multiprotocol traffic over the Internet, but its capabilities are more limited than IPSec's.
The Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol
(PPTP) is a networking technology widely used for implementing Virtual Private Networks (VPNs).
Three popular tunneling protocols have emerged: Microsoft's point-to-point tunneling protocol
(PPTP), the Layer 2 tunneling protocol (L2TP), and the IP security protocol (IPSec) which is backed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
Furthermore, enterprises must select from multiple protocols, Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol
(PPTP), Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP), IP Security (IPSec) protocol and MPLS.
The most prevalent tunneling protocols are the point-to-point tunneling protocol
(PPTP) and IPSec.
EtherFast uses point-to-point tunneling protocol
, so users can access other networks in a VPN via the Internet over a secure connection.
