The way I understand it SSL and VPN are essentially both doing the same job and you would use one or the other. I can download the VPN client as part of dialup networking from Microsoft. VPN is typically part of my superappliance that hangs on the edge of my LAN. This superappliance does routing, firewall, multiple connection methods (ie: T1, ISDN, DSL, leased line, etc.). I dial my ISP; I startup my VPN client and hit my superappliance; I fire up my TN5250 client and hit my AS400. Why do I need SSL? Wondering.....
