DescriptionThe remote host is running a generic Cisco VPN Server.
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) allows remote users to connect to an
internal network as if they were local users. A VPN that allows
split-tunneling will essentially serve as a bridge between the remote
network and the internal network. Special care should be taken to
ensure that remote VPN clients connect securely and do not introduce
an unacceptable level of risk to the internal computing environment.
SolutionEnsure that the VPN is acceptable with respect to corporate guidelines and policies.
