Summary: Virtual Private Network (VPN) daemon that uses tunnelling and encryption to create a secure private network between hosts on the Internet.
tinc is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) daemon that uses tunnelling
and encryption to create a secure private network between hosts on the
tinc is Free Software and licensed under the GNU General Public License.
Because the VPN appears to the IP level network code as a normal
network device, there is no need to adapt any existing software. This
allows VPN sites to share information with each other over the
Internet without exposing any information to others. In addition, tinc
has the following features:
Encryption, authentication and compression
All traffic is optionally compressed using zlib or LZO, and
OpenSSL is used to encrypt the traffic and protect it from
alteration with message authentication codes and sequence numbers.
Automatic full mesh routing
Regardless of how you set up the tinc daemons to connect to each
other, VPN traffic is always (if possible) sent directly to the
destination, without going through intermediate hops.
Easily expand your VPN
When you want to add nodes to your VPN, all you have to do is add
an extra configuration file, there is no need to start new daemons
or create and configure new devices or network interfaces.
Ability to bridge ethernet segments
You can link multiple ethernet segments together to work like a
single segment, allowing you to run applications and games that
normally only work on a LAN over the Internet.
Runs on many operating systems and supports IPv6
Currently Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, MacOS/X, Solaris,
Windows 2000 and XP platforms are supported. See our section about
supported platforms for more information about the state of the
ports. tinc has also full support for IPv6, providing both the
possibility of tunneling IPv6 traffic over its tunnels and of
creating tunnels over existing IPv6 networks.
