What is A VPN?

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network.

A VPN provides a secure way to access network resources over the Internet or other public or private networks and allows you to connect to a remote network and become a node on that network. VPNs use tunneling, encryption, authentication, and access control over a public network at the same time for security.

Although they often use public networks, VPNs inherit the characteristics of a private network, thus the "Virtual" Private Network.

A VPN can be a better alternative to traditional connections in Public Places such as Hot Spots, or open wifi connections. Connecting the user through a secure encrypted tunnel to their destination. Without risking attack from the open network.

How Does it Work?

VPNs create "virtual" point-to-point connections using a technique called tunneling.

As the name suggests, tunneling acts like a "pipe" which penetrates through a network to connect two points. Normally activated by remote users, tunneling encrypts data into standard TCP/IP packets and encapsulates it for safe transmission across the Internet.

VPN ensures the confidentiality and integrity of information as it travels over the public internet because it requires:

Remote user identity authentication

Secure private transmission of data (no unauthorized listeners

Verification of unadulterated data transmission

The VPN connection behaves like this:

You connect to the Internet in the normal manner, through your ISP.

The VPN client software on your computer initiates a connection with the VPN server.

The VPN server encrypts the data on the connection so it cannot be read by others while it is in transit.

The VPN server decrypts the data and passes it on to other servers and resources.

How does it let me watch TV

Many program and video broadcasters on the internet restrict access to their video content. This is mostly due to bandwidth and geographical issues. However nearly all restrictions are impossed by Geographical IP address blocks.

If a broadcaster blocks all IP addresses other than for their region. ie the BBC iPlayer blocking all users without a UK connection and therefore a UK IP addess. By connecting through a VPN to a UK based server. Your connection onwards to the internet is from the UK therefore meeting the requirements of the broadcaster.

With our network of United Kingdom, United States and Canadian servers gives you the opportunity to connect to most of the worlds main broadcasters wherever you are in the world.
