asked on

PPTP or IPSEC

Hi all,

I am about to setup a LAN to LAN VPN. The router gives me 2 options: PPTP or IPSEC.

What should I choose and why?

I want the most stable and secure solution.

Thankx!

Thank you AKB,

I always wonder why, if the best solution would work (IPSEC) then why would there even be an option like PPTP. Why would anyone choose PPTP above IPSEC?
Maybe for compatibility with legacy systems.

how about l2tp when should we use it?
L2tp is not a secure and is usually accompanied by ipsecasthe encryption tunnel..
Tankergoblin, are you using this question to answer one of your own?mor is this an attempt to suggest to the asker to consider using l2tp over IPSec.
