Re: VPN on HPUX 11v3

VPN is typically implemented on your network equipment, not on an individual server. VPN connects you to a network. Once you are connected to your internal network, you simply use ssh (e.g. the Putty client for Windows) to ssh into your HP-UX server.

It might help if you described the problem
which you are trying to solve, instead of
asking how to implement some particular
(vaguely described) "solution".

William,

I think you are using VPN connection..to connect the remote server from your PC,for login to server use ssh.secure shell.

How does the connection established?

you PC -->over internet --> remote server(To server login use ssh(putty))

Re: VPN on HPUX 11v3

this all has to be done on the network side . your work is only to connect to the server by using ssh or telnet than give your userid and provide you password using your RSA token .

+1 for ssh.

As it was mentioned, VPN in general is a complex solution based on special network equipment. With ssh you can get the data flow encrypted without bothering with the complexity of VPN. But here is a link what explains the difference between ssh and VPN:
