BB VPN created when Link installed. Why?

Today I installed Blackberry Link preparing to make the upgrade from my Torch 9850 to the Z10.  I noticed it installed a VPN on my PC (running Windows XP).  Just wondering what that was for (forgive my ignorance).  Thanks

Re: BB VPN created when Link installed. Why?

I don't know why it does this, but it interferes with my exisiting Windows 8 hosted VPN.  Whenever it is enabled, I can tunnel into my VPN, but cannot access the internet.  As soon as I disable the Blackberry VPN, my Win 8 VPN gives access to the internet again.  If anyone knows how to fix this situation, please let me know.  It is really annoying to have to disable it whenever i leave my desk.
