Hi, I have PureVPN IKEv2 protocol setup on my iPhone and Windows PC. It has several other protocols: PPTP, L2TP, IPsec, OpenVPN, and SSTP. I was wondering which protocols serves what purpose and what's the best one in terms of security, streaming, file sharing, etc. :confused:

Different protocols have differing levels of simplicity (computationally) and overhead.
In terms of security, PPTP is weakest but fastest.

Suggest read about the differences if interested - https://www.giganews.com/vyprvpn/compare-vpn-protocols.html
Thanks that's explanatory. I asked the CSR and redirected me to their own comparison here; https://www.purevpn.com/vpn-protocols now the comparison is in simplified form compared to your link above. I chose IKEv2 based on that comparison. What do you think about IKEv2? and SSTP?
