A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is used to create a secure connection between two machines. Traffic over the network is encrypted to prevent intermediate parties from reading messages passed back and forth. Other schemes are also applied to prevent modification of messages, or injection of new messages in the stream. The VPN only protects information between your computer and the VPN server, communications between the VPN server and the traffic's destination will not be affected.
The VPN server will allow you to remain connected for twelve hours, at which point your connection will be closed. Feel free to re-connect immediately.
