fbtunnel is an implementation of the FireBrick® tunneling/VPN protocol for Unix (mainly Linux and MacOS-X as thats what I have available to test). So far, its the result of an afternoon spent hacking code so may be a little rough and ready. So let me state the obvious. This is alpha software. I've used it with my FireBrick® but if it crashes yours, destroys your network connectivity, steals your first born, it's not my problem, capiche?
The FireBrick® is a
little firewall that offers a host of nice features. Its flexibility is
its main feature - and the only thing I've not been able to do with
it yet is adjust the TTL of a session - hardly a big problem! Check out
the website for lots of documentation about what it
can do - especially the speed lanes.
If you are at all interested in the FireBrick®
then head on over to alt.firebrick on
Usenet (or ask on the fbtunnel-discussion
list if Usenet is a problem).
is in no way officially related to the
FireBrick® however Adrian
and the crew documented their tunnel implementation in the technical reference manual
and without that, or their help answering my questions - this wouldn't
have happened. How many other suppliers do you know that voluntarily
document their protocols? I applaud them for it.
fbtunnel is available to
download in both source and binary form from the Speed link above. Configuration
details are available on the Setup,
Route and Tunnel links
