Personal Telco VPN
This is a page to tie together any and all information about a ["VPN"] which exists within ["PTPnet"]. At some point in the DistantFuture, JimmySchmierbach worked on a proposal (with assistance from KeeganQuinn) to build VPN connections between some (if not all) nodes. There are a few motivations to do this:
Maintenance - some nodes are behind NAT and we can't get to them otherwise. One current example is NodeLuckyLab.
- Fake Internode Links - ideally, all of our nodes would be connected wirelessly into one big ["PTPnet"] cloud. However, at present, this is not the case. To give the 'feeling' of interconnectedness in spite of the lack of real connectedness, we can build tunnels between nodes accross the internet. It should be noted that some people seem to think that this isn't a good motivation - it is just a result of us becoming complacent and lazy about our idealistic goals.
Here are the places on this wiki where there is currently information on VPNs:
add others here...
The goal is to scrape the cruft off the partially implemented VPN, build something new and functional according to Jimmy's ideas, and then document it here so that it can be maintained/learned-from with ease.
