Virtual private network Wikipedia.
A limitation of traditional VPNs is that they are point-to-point connections and do not tend to support broadcast domains; therefore, communication, software, and networking, which are based on layer 2 and broadcast packets, such as NetBIOS used in Windows networking, may not be fully supported as on a local area network. Variants on VPN such as Virtual Private LAN Service VPLS and layer 2 tunneling protocols are designed to overcome this limitation. See also edit. Dynamic Multipoint Virtual Private Network.

Your ISP has less to gain by stealing your packetz than a rogue VPN Provider. This comment has been minimized. Sign in to view. Copy link Quote reply. nf3 commented Nov 9, 2017. I wrote an article in this same vein on what are the important criteria in choosing or not choosing a VPN as this original gist would recommend. My article address many of the points that this gist touch upon. And like many of the commentors, I agree and recommend that TOR plus a VPN is the the current best privacy practice in order to shield yourself from 3rd party eyes.
