  11 +cat << EOF
  12 +tinc is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) daemon that uses tunnelling and
  13 +encryption to create a secure private network between hosts on the Internet.
  14 +Because the VPN appears to the IP level network code as a normal network device,
  15 +there is no need to adapt any existing software. This allows VPN sites to share
  16 +information with each other over the Internet without exposing any information
  17 +to others. Features:
  18 +
  19 +Encryption, authentication and compression
  20 + All traffic is optionally compressed using zlib or LZO, and OpenSSL is used to
  21 + encrypt the traffic and protect it from alteration with message authentication
  22 + codes and sequence numbers.
  23 +
  24 +Automatic full mesh routing
  25 + Regardless of how you set up the tinc daemons to connect to each other, VPN
  26 + traffic is always (if possible) sent directly to the destination, without going
  27 + through intermediate hops.
  28 +
  29 +Easily expand your VPN
  30 + When you want to add nodes to your VPN, all you have to do is add an extra
  31 + configuration file, there is no need to start new daemons or create and configure
  32 + new devices or network interfaces.
  33 +
  34 +Ability to bridge ethernet segments
  35 + You can link multiple ethernet segments together to work like a single segment,
  36 + allowing you to run applications and games that normally only work on a LAN over
  37 + the Internet.
  38 +
  39 +Runs on many operating systems and supports IPv6
