If you have Three Routers


Connected in this sequence and there is a routing protocol of Eigrp running on all three routers advertising all links hence R1 can ping R3 why would you establish a Site to Site VPN Connection Between R1( and R3( since R1 can already ping R3 due to EIGRP routing protocol.

the reason is;


data security, thats the primary objective of a vpn (ipsec, ssl, mpls) etc

with vpn dats packets are encapsulated, encrypted with complex algorrithms , so that the intruder can not intercept the data.
