There are two types of VPNs:
<> Remote Access Virtual Private Network:
A Remote Access VPN securely connects a device (endpoints like laptops, tablets, or smartphones) outside the corporate office. It allows a client to associate with a private network and access every one of its resources and services remotely. The connection between the private network and the user happens securely through the Internet. It is a low-cost solution and is helpful for both business and home users.
<> Site-to-Site or Router-to-Router Virtual Private Network:
This VPN is mostly used in large organizations with branches in different locations to connect the network of one office to another in different locations. It has two sub-categories:

A VPN or Virtual Private Network is an encrypted connection (secure tunnel) built on the internet from a device to a network. It helps in the creation of a protected network between different networks using the internet (public network), ensuring that sensitive data is safely transmitted. This makes it difficult for third parties to gain unauthorized access, track your activities online, or steal data. By using the VPN, a client can connect to the organizationâ€™s network remotely.

This is one of the important networking interview questions that you must prepare for your interview. The main difference between a Domain and a Workgroup is where do the computer networks belong to. If it is a home network, then computers will be a part of a workgroup, and if itâ€™s a workplace network, then the computers will be a part of a domain.

Both are security applications used in networking.
A firewall prevents unauthorized access in private networks as intranets. However, it does not protect against viruses, spyware, or adware.
An antivirus is a software that protects a computer from any malicious software, virus, spyware, or adware.
You may consider such networking interview questions to be basic, but such questions are the favourite of interviewers as interviewees often leave behind such networking interview questions while preparing.

There are three main elements of a protocol â€“
<> Syntax: It refers to the structure or format of the data and their order of presentation.
<> Semantics: It specifies the meaning of each section of bits.
<> Timing: Timing refers to two characteristics, which include the timing of data sending and the speed of data sending.

Encryption is the process of changing data from its original readable format to an unreadable format, thus ensuring network security. It requires the user to use a secret key or password to decrypt the data.
Encryption is not only useful for communications, but also in any case where you want to protect sensitive information. Thus, it is possible to encrypt the information contained in disks, folders or even individual files, to prevent unauthorized access. Then, in addition to the benefit of protecting the privacy of users, data encryption prevents other types of attacks such as identity theft, or bank fraud, in addition to providing a protection mechanism against the theft or loss of devices with sensitive information.

SLIP or Serial Line Interface Protocol was developed during the early UNIX days and it is used for remote access.
SLIP does not provide error detection as it relies on higher-layer protocols for it. Therefore, SLIP alone is not successful on an error-prone dial-up connection. However, it is still useful to test the operating systemâ€™s response capabilities under load (looking at ping flood statistics).
Interviewers often ask such networking interview questions and you must prepare for such abbreviations.

Nodes â€“ Devices or data points on a more extensive network are known as nodes. They are individual parts of a larger data structure and contain data. They also link other nodes.
Links- A link is the physical and logical network component for interconnecting hosts or nodes in a network. It is a physical communication medium such as a coaxial cable or optical fibre.
