With a virtual private network (VPN), you can create a secure SSL encrypted connection between a local PC and your cloud servers.


For technical reasons, you can only establish one connection to your cloud servers via VPN. If you want to establish multiple VPN connections at the same time, you must configure a VPN connection for every local PC.
