The title sums up my question. I know that a VPN is used to log onto a network remotely and access onsite files remotely, but what about a VLAN? Can't this be done via a VLAN also? I'm so confused :(

✔ Best Answer
Two completely different things. A simple explanation:

VLANs (Virtual Local Area Netwrok) operates locally making it appear as if you have lots of different Local Area Networks..

VPN (Virtual Private Network) operates over the Internet making it look as if the Internet is an extension of your own private netwrok.
