Setting Up a VPN

As I explained in Chapter 18, if you are connecting to a home network using a public Wi-Fi hotspot, using a virtual private network (VPN), which acts as a kind of tunnel through the Internet, is a great way to enhance security. In Chapter 18, I showed you the way to set up the VPN from the client (meaning the remote laptop).

Earlier in this chapter, I explained that using a VPN to isolate the Wi-Fi access point from the rest of the network, and to restrict access to authorized users, is a great way to beef up network security.
