This problem could be solved by using a virtual private network (VPN) as data transmission channel. This paper discusses design and implementation of VPN for PT Mega Tirta alami which connect the head office to two the branch offices: Branch-1 (Bandung) and Branch-2 (Bekasi). The VPN was implemented using point to point tunneling protocol (PPTP) by using three Mikrotik routers. There is only few changes in the computer network configuration to minimize both implementation cost and time. Prior to make any data communication to the head office, user in Branch-1 or Branch-2 must provide username and password as part of verification and validation process. The newly developed VPN was tested on various technical aspects to ensure its reliability and operability. The test results showed that the VPN connected between from head office to Branch-1 and from head office to Branch-2. To maintain the security, the direct connection between Branch-1 and Branch-2 via developed VPN is strictly forbidden.
