Hi, Spidy

any VPN is a tunnel, but not any tunnel is a VPN… In general, if you have a traffic-encripting (to ensure privacy – the P in VPN) tunnel which connects two physically separated subnets into one network (virtual network – V & N in VPN), you have a VPN.

Having a VPN or a simple non-encrypting tunnel, you can accomplish redirection of the traffic for any purpose using usual routing methods – but you’ll need a huge tunnel , since you’ll double your trafic this way.

Good luck,

Petko
