In fact, the term VPN itself is a buzzword.
Nowadays, VPN means nothing else than an IPsec tunnel throughout the
Internet which makes a node from outside a network behave and feel like
a node inside a network.
Some years ago. I found the term VPN used for a number of FR connections
offered by some telco in oder to establish a company network connecting
So, the term VPN is somewhat "polymorphic" :-)
