  1. Hi Rene,

    Thank you for the excellent intro on VPN. I like the way you teach and make the concept simple.

    I also heard about other types of VPN like Easy VPN, Anyconnect VPN and many more. If you can throw some lights on that and let us know their use in real networks.

  2. Hello Bharath

    EasyVPN is a wizard that can be used either on the router (using Cisco Configuration Professional) or at the client to simplify the creation of VPNs. Using a wizard it allows you to enter information in a GUI to create your VPN. There are three components that can be used: Easy VPN Client, Remote and Server. You can find out more information about it here.

    Cisco AnyConnect is a secure mobility client that allows you to connect securely (via VPN) to a VPN server. It is essentially Cisco's VPN client software for PC, laptop and mobile devices.

    So Easy VPN and AnyConnect are not really types of VPNs, but they are tools that leverage VPNs and simplify their deployment.

    I hope this has been helpful!
