I’ve been trying to understand more about vpns. Its my understand that when they say vpn client thats just your computer that you are using that has vpn software installed. I keep hearing about vpn routers and vpn servers. I’m starting to believe they are the same thing. The way I understand it is an encrypted channel between your computeror device and your isp. his encrypted channel is what helps protect your data. So its your device,the vpn server,and the internet that is provide by your isp. The vpn portion is either a router with vpn capabilites or a physical server running something like linux or windows with the proper vpn protocols and software to make it a vpn.It would still need an internet connection(modem/switch/router) in some way but it wouldn’t need an actual vpn router itself connected it to because it in itself is not an actual server.Am I correct on this?
