|+ SHORT="VPN (Virtual Private Network) daemon"|
|+cat << EOF|
|+tinc is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) daemon that uses tunnelling and|
|+encryption to create a secure private network between hosts on the Internet.|
|+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. 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|
