A VPN test refers to the collective measures and processes of testing a VPN connection, tunnel or the overall VPN infrastructure.
It is a type of network testing procedure that is done to ensure and validate that the VPN is providing the required services.
A VPN test is primarily conducted after a VPN infrastructure is designed or implemented. It helps in ensuring that remote users are able to utilize and connect to VPN services. Typically, a VPN test requires connecting with the VPN server or host through a remote location, usually via the Internet. In addition to ensuring that the users are able to connect, a VPN test may also validate the security and load testing of the VPN network.
