    Default VPN definition : sometimes a little bit confusing

    Self-Paced Training Kit Exam 70-642: Configuring Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure: Tony Northrup, J.C. Mackin: 9780735651609: Amazon.com: Books
    In this book, I have read the two definitions below :

    Page 322 : "IPSEC tunnels are not supported for remote access VPN scenarios."
    Page 333 : "Tunnel rule - Use this rule type to configure IPSEC tunnel mode for VPN gateways"

    My understanding of VPN concept from these two definitions is ; there are two kinds of VPNs : remote access and site-to-site. But ; if IPSEC "client-to-gateway" Tunnel mode is considered as a kind-of "remote access" VPN, the definition of page 322 is not totally true.

    In the same subject, I found an uncommon definition of Transport/Tunnel modes in the book below (page 191):MCTS 70-642 Cert Guide: Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure, Configuring: Don Poulton: 9780789748300: Amazon.com: Books

    "Transport mode:
    Enables you to secure transmissions within a single network,
    such as server-to-server or client-to-server"
    "Tunnel mode: Enables you to secure transmissions between two networks,"

    Is that definition of "Transport mode" saying that L2TP/IPSEC could not work in an inter-network scenario ?
    I think, a beginner in the network Infrastructure world can be easily lost into these definitions ???

    Hi Omni123,
    I'm not learning for CCNA, but for Microsoft 70-642.
