Q

The difference between IPSEC and PPTP

What is the difference between Internet Protocol Security (IPSEC) and Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP)?


They are two different protocols aimed at providing Internet Protocol security. There is a good article by Julie Bort that describes the two and points out the similarities and differences much better than I could in this limited space.
