Solution:

A virtual private network (VPN) is a cost-effective and secure way for corporations to provide users dial up access to the corporate network and for remote networks to communicate with each other across the Internet. Secure private connections over the Internet are more cost-effective than dedicated private lines. NetScreen devices provide full VPN functions for secure LAN-to-LAN and Dial Up-to-LAN VPN applications.
