VPN is a private network system that uses the public internet to “tunnel” traffic secretly and securely from your PC to a corporate or a private computer network. This allows you to safely access your resources and in some cases (such as PSVPN) the rest of the Internet from a limited or unsecure network connection (ex. public wireless or internet cafe).
PSMail offers PSVPN and AnyVPN as services to its customers. Both of these are included with your PSMailbox subscription. VPN is a private network system that virtually “tunnels” traffic discretely and securely from your PC to our computer network. This allows you to safely access your PSMailbox and the rest of the Internet from a limited or unsecure network connection (ex. public wireless or internet cafe or airports).
How does it work?
When you connect to PSMail’s VPN, your computer will temporarily terminate all its communications with local systems. Once the VPN network is set up, the computer will begin to tunnel all traffic at the network level back to our central VPN servers. Your local wireless network or internet cafe network will not be able to read or analyze your network traffic. It is highly recommended that you access your PSMailbox and other Internet services through VPN when you are using a network that you are not able to trust.
How much do I pay for the VPN service?
VPN service is included with your PSMail subscription. It does not require any additional fee or special activation from our service center.
What operating systems are supported?
We support Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux (Generic) with our VPN client. Other systems, such as iPhone and other mobile software for VPN access, are supported via our Mobile VPN offering.
