These days you don't see a lot of people going through the physical yellow page book looking for a company, now we simply search Google if we need to find a restaurant, cleaning or repair service etc. With smartphones now it is easier to find what you are looking for if your service is something people are looking for you want to make sure you have a good presence online.

VPN, a term that usually is not well understood, means the access of a remote network like if it were local. A VPN is archived using a tunnelling technique which consists of passing one protocol within another. There are several ways to do a tunnel:

  • IP over IP like the old good times,
  • Through another protocol such as GRE like PPTP does,
  • Using a Layer-4 protocol such as TCP or UDP like OpenVPN does,
  • Passing within a Layer-5 protocol such as DNS like Iodine does, or
  • Using a Layer 7 protocol like HTTP.
