L2TP and SSTP
PPTP is good for everything: wide support, easy configuration and speed of operation... However, due to the password verification Protocol, MS-CHAP V. 2, which can be hacked in 2 days, is not secure. Therefore, in the Windows environment, it is better to use alternative VPN protocols, such as L2TP with IPSec encryption or, introduced in Windows Vista, SSTP, based on SSL encryption.

L2TP (from the English. "Layer 2 Tunnel Protocol" - "second-level tunneling Protocol") was developed as a replacement for insecure PPTP, however, it does not provide any encryption on its own. To ensure a secure connection, this Protocol is used in conjunction with the IPsec Protocol, so it is sometimes called L2TP/IPsec.

At the technical level, the main difference between L2TP and PPTP is that the former uses UDP rather than the traditional TCP port. This can cause problems when connecting via a firewall or router where the 500th UDP port is closed (you will need to redirect). If you are connected to the Internet directly, then usually there should be no problems.

If you do not know the basics of VPN technology, then you are unlikely to be able to use it correctly. However, providers are constantly looking for new approaches to improve and simplify the user interface so that VPN capabilities are available to everyone.

Agree with you. For example, I use one of the Chinese VPN and I like it. I found this vpn in a search engine and I advise you to look for it there. For some reason, Chinese VPN services are better for me than usual VPNs.

Usually, to access the Internet, you first connect to an Internet service provider, which redirects you to the requested websites (or other resources on the Internet). And since all your Internet traffic passes through the provider's servers, they can see and record everything you do on the Internet. They may even share your browsing history with advertisers, authorities, and other third parties.

But here a VPN comes on the scene and redirects your Internet traffic through a specially configured remote server. This way the VPN hides your IP address and encrypts all incoming and outgoing data. There is no point in intercepting encrypted data because it cannot be read.

“Encryption” is a professional synonym for the word “obfuscation”. By encrypting the data, you simply turn it into an incomprehensible hash before sending it to the Internet. But an incomprehensible hash is not a particularly useful thing. Therefore, the data is put in order when it reaches the destination, and the desired recipient can read it. Here, in fact, is a description of how VPN services work.

You can read about vpn on the Internet about its main functions for what it is needed. I installed vpn to visit sites that are closed to my provider. This is the most important thing that is important for me is that it allows you to change the country and what Chinese or Russian vpn it is is not important to me. It is important that it is free and copes with the task assigned to it.

Using a VPN connection is the optimal solution to both of these problems at once: this is how we gain access to resources blocked in the country and protect ourselves from wiretapping traffic. There are two ways to implement this solution...
