    VPN main protocols are only two, PPTP and L2TP. PPTP uses another protocol called Generic Routing Protocol GRE (IP Protocol 47). IPSec is an extension to the normal IP protocol that adds security to IP packets, IPSec in turn uses another protocol called IKE which is used to setup the encryption between any two hosts communicating with each other.
    i can list :
    IPIP tunneling, IPSec, L2F, L2TP, PPTP, Socks.

    The "I'm supposed to find" implies it is a homework question, plain theory and not really to be used...
