SoftLayer’s VPN access is designed to allow users to remotely manage all servers securely over SoftLayer’s private network. A VPN connection from your location to the private network allows for unlimited file transfers, out-of-band management and server rescue through an encrypted VPN tunnel. With VPN access, you can:
- Establish a VPN connection to the private network via SSL, PPTP or IPSEC
- Access your server via its private 10.x.x.x IP address via SSH or RDP
- Connect to your server’s IPMI IP address for additional server management or rescue needs.
