  PPTP -- Client Request (Inbound)

Category: PROTOCOLS      

Application: PPTP Protocol      

The Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) is a method for implementing virtual private networks. PPTP does not provide confidentiality or encryption; It relies on the protocol being tunneled to provide privacy. PPTP has been made obsolete by Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) and IPSec.

This SonicWALL signature identifies legitimate PPTP traffic.
