Unlike other virtual private "network" solutions which merely create a single tunnel, GVPE creates a real network with multiple endpoints.
It is designed to be very simple and robust (cipher selection done at compiletime etc.), and easy to setup (only a single config file shared unmodified between all hosts).
VPN hosts can neither sniff nor fake packets, that is, you can use MAC-based filtering to ensure authenticity of packets even from member nodes.
GVPE can also be used to tunnel into some vpn network using a variety of protocols (raw IP, UDP, TCP, HTTPS-proxy-connect, ICMP and DNS). It is, however, primarily designed to sit on the gateway machines of company branches to connect them together.
==== NAME ==== GNU-VPE - Overview of the GNU Virtual Private Ethernet suite. ==== DESCRIPTION ==== GVPE is a suite designed to provide a virtual private network for multiple nodes over an untrusted network. This document first gives an introduction to VPNs in general and then describes the specific implementation of GVPE. == WHAT IS A VPN? == VPN is an acronym, more»
These files are configuration files for "our" internal network. It is highly non-trivial, so don't use this configuration as the basis of your network unless you know what you are doing. It features: around 30 hosts, many of them have additional networks behind them and use an assortment of different tunneling protocols. The vpn is fully routed, no arp is used at all.

GVPE NEWS 2.24 Sat Feb 12 05:15:48 CET 2011 - protocol version 0.1, compatible with older releases. - due to a bug, when packets were lost, a connection could go into a state where a ping/connection request from another node would be ignored, leading to connections not being re-established. - due to a bug, compression was almost always enabled. - enable-max-mtu was more»
