PPTP – Point

Point-to-Point Tunnelling Protocol is a Layer 2 protocol that encapsulates PPP (Point to Point Protocol) frames in IP datagrams for transmission, typically over the Internet. PPTP uses a TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) connection for tunnel maintenance and a modified version of GRE (Generic Routing Encapsulation) to encapsulate PPP data frames.
