+ 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
