  Thats not what I had in mind.

  Its rather the many academic institutions who have a subscription to
the IUCr journals. Access to the journals is limited to subnets. In
other words you have to be on site to get access. VPN gets around this
by allowing access into the local net from outside hence permitting
access to the journals from outside the sub net. i.e. You don't have to
be on site, you don't have to be employed any more by the institution,
visitors could manage to keep access for years on end, etc. That what I
had in mind.
