what are you trying to do
are you connecting 2 offices
seting up a VPN
using tunneling mode instead of transport mode

or are you setting up 2 different VPN tunnels on 1 server/appliance?

so instead of talking directly from server to server over an internet connection
you are creating a tunnel....or pipe from one site to another
since you are traveling over someone else's network ( Internet/cloud/provider network)
you need to secure and encrypt your data

a VPN tunnel - whether IPsec or SSL creates a secure tunnel that transmit scrambled data
your 'other end' of the tunnel has the key to unscrampble or decrypt the traffic
assuring you CIA
confidentiality
Integrity
authentication
