Tinc Tips

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are a great way to send info across a local or wide area netwok encrypted. The tinc VPN software is nice because it's simpler than most VPN softwares, and has slightly better documentation. You do everything from the command line, mainly using config files and shellscripts.

tinc has less landmines, gotchas, and moving parts than most other VPN solutions. Nevertheless, VPN isn't simple, so neither is tinc. If you're not familiar with tinc, get your feet wet with my tinc peer to peer hello world.
