    Default Re: what does VPN stand for

    Nowadays, VPN is a convulated term for many things.

    The main idea with VPNs is to use an underlay Network in order to build a Virtual Overlay network.
    The underlay is usually the internet or the physical network that is used for packet forwarding.
    VPNs is therefore a general terminology that refers to the different way to build a Virtual network.
