A Virtual Private Network is a private network that acts as a virtual tunnel across a public network, typically the Internet, and allows remote users to access resources on a private network. There are two main types of VPNs that can be configured using a FortiGate unit: IPsec VPN (see IPsec) and SSL VPN (see SSL).

Bruce has been working with computers, and related technology, since before the World Wide Web was a thing. He has worked in system and network administration. He has even dabbled in technical support. He has made the switch to technical writing as part of his deep, dark and dastardly plan to make the arcane machinations of IT technology more easily understood by the poor folks who use it. That, and the voices in his head told him it was good idea. Never argue with the voices in your head. People will start to stare.
