What is PPTP?

for establishing VPN (Virtual Private Network) tunnels across the Internet. This allows remote users to securely access
their corporate network (or hosting network) from anywhere on the Internet.
Why use PPTP?
PPTP uses a client-server model for establishing VPN connections. Most Microsoft operating systems (Windows 2000 and
Windows XP) ship with a FREE PPTP client, so there is no need to purchase third-party client software. PPTP has the
additional advantage over other VPN technologies of being easy client setup.
