October 28, 2003 ssh and Virtual Private Networks (VPN) Tracy Reed

The idea behind a VPN is to create an encrypted tunnel between two sites on the Internet and route IP through the tunnel. To clients and servers on either end it looks like a normal network; the encryption and the fact that the rest of the Internet is between the two sides is invisible. We can use ssh to implement something like this. This will be a how to session with specific instructions for setting up such a VPN.
