What do you mean by host to host? PC to PC?

Seconded, your question is rather open-ended.

Site to site, is just that... generally speaking between two sites and/or (public)
IP addresses.

Do you have an endgoal in mind when you are asking this question?

I think you're aksing about the difference between the site-to-side and host(client)-to-side concepts. At least that's the two types of vpn connection I know.

side-to-side:
If you have two offices each with a server and a constant connection to the internet, you set up a constant vpn connection between both the servers. This way, the two networks are connected like there would be only one office.

host(client)(what-ever-you-may-call-it)-to-side:
You have a office with a server and a constant connection to the internet. An employee wants to work from home and needs access to the office network. He creates a vpn connection to the server as soon as he needs to access the network for as long as he needs it.

Maybe not the most detailed explanation but I think it will answer your question.

Everyone is welcome to correct me.
