Benefits of PPTP when compared to other protocols
What does this example show? That setting up a PPTP is relatively cheap and quite easy to do. Users won’t have to make complex configurations or need to write a script in order to communicate with their network. They only need to follow some basic instructions and they can share all the information they want.
It must be noted, though, that the speed of connection will depend on where you are. If you are using the broadband connection of an internet caf� in the third world, it’s probably that you will have to limit yourself to download and upload emails with, at the most, small attachments. These countries still lack an adequate internet infrastructure.
A word of advice. Internet communication protocols can be quite complicated, and some people forget that not all of us are system administrators, but user who require a bit more of knowledge in order to implement a solution for our needs. Do not waste time trying to understand technical jargon like speedtouch multiple PPTP, PPTP VPN router, configure PPTP client XP or PPTP server Linux. All of that is mumbo-jumbo. What you really need is a fast, quick solution.
If you have a small company and wish to configure PPTP, then your best choice is to buy a product that is already in the market of PPTP; Checkpoint is an excellent choice, and quite economical. Call them and ask about the services and products that your company may require. After all, setting up by yourself a Linux PPTP server isn’t an easy task. Do not compromise the information of your company in order to save some dollars. Ain’t worth it.
