The Point to Point Tunneling Protocol Daemon (PPTPD) is the standard protocol for use in most VPN servers. It easy to set up and the connection rate is fast. However, its security measures aren’t quite as powerful as the Layer 2 Tunnel Protocol (L2TP). This protocol system is compatible with all modern platform and offers additional security in our VPN. The L2TP encapsulates data twice, which is why it is more secure. However, it should be noted that it is slightly slower than the PPTPD, but it will work efficiently enough to be manageable.
The OpenVPN protocol offers the most security, and its traffic is discreet, making it difficult to tell apart from the standard HTTPS connection. This means that it is difficult to block as a connection method. Setting this protocol up can be a little bit trickier than using the previous two methods, but it is much more secure and can bypass firewalls that would normally restrict you as a user.
This protocol is a very similar but updated version of IKev1. This protocol is significantly faster than Ikev1 because it uses less bandwidth. This protocol also works on mobile platforms such as BlackBerry and is able to travel across different Network Address Translations. It”s more stable as it checks the tunnel that it is using. Unlike IKEv1, it will check the tunnel it is using, and if it establishes that the tunnel it is using is no longer functioning, it will reestablish the connection.
