Description : creates a virtual ethernet between multiple endpoints
GNU VPE creates a virtual ethernet by creating host-to-host tunnels between
multiple endpoints. Unlike other virtual private "network" solutions which
merely create a single tunnel, it creates a real network with multiple endpoints.
It is designed to be conceptually simple and straightforward to setup (assuming
prior IP routing knowledge) without sacrificing flexibility. It is designed to
sit on the gateway machines of company branches to connect them, but it can
also be used to tunnel into a VPN with a variety of protocols (RAW IP, ICMP,
UDP, TCP, HTTPS-Proxy, DNS).
