VPN is short for Virtual Private Network. The private nature of a VPN means that the data travelling over the VPN is not generally visible, or is encapsulated from, the underlying network traffic. Similarly, the traffic within the VPN appears to the underlying network as just another traffic stream to be passed. You can find a lot of websites on the Internet that sells VPN services which protects your privacy and also some being able to unthrottle your P2P or bittorrent connection allowing you to download at full speed. However this is not the case for Comodo EasyVPN.
