central tunneling

In VPN technology, central tunneling is the process of forcing all traffic from a remote VPN through a central site. Central tunneling allows additional security as remote VPN users are protected by a firewall at the central site, and also enables NAT, IDS, IPS and anti-virus and spam filtering. Central tunneling does increase bandwidth at the central site.
