What Exactly is a Tunnel Adapter

I have been seeing these tunnel adapters showing up when I do an IPCONFIG command for years now, and today I am wondering what they are. What is there purpose? What do they?

Try this: Anyone know what "Tunnel Adapters" are in ipconfig? - Vista Forums

Google will be your friend, in this case. There are plenty of links that will show you how to remove it, if you so wish.

Hope this helps,
