I'm new to the forum. A friend of mine suggested that I check it out, and that I post my current project here. So here it is: https://github.com/zerotier/ZeroTierOne https://www.zerotier.com/ It's an open source Ethernet virtualization engine. It works by emulating an Ethernet switch (layer 2) over a peer to peer network. All the core infrastructure code is open and the service is free, though I've got a freemium model in place for networks that you create and manage through the control panel at zerotier.com. (Charging for convenience.) It kicks in with >10 devices or Ethernet bridging enabled. The charges only apply to private networks. You can create public networks of unlimited size for free. There's also a public network called Earth: https://www.zerotier.com/earth.html It's sort of like a global coffee shop WiFi. Obviously make sure your machine is secure before joining. People who want to run their own network configuration servers can do so by digging into the netconf-server/ subfolder in the source and following the directions there. Those directions are rather sparse so far, but it's probably enough for experts to go on. I can answer questions if anyone wants to play with that part. I'm curious to hear this forum's feedback, since it seems full of people who get this kind of thing. So far I've got reports of people running it on Raspberry Pi, using it to play old school games that only support IPX networking (it emulates Ethernet so it doesn't care what protocol you use), etc.
