What is tinc?

tinc is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) daemon that uses tunnelling and encryption to create a secure private network between hosts on the Internet. tinc is Free Software and licensed under the GNU General Public License version 2 or later. 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. In addition, tinc has the following 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
Currently Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, MacOS/X, Solaris, Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7 and 8 platforms are supported. See our section about supported platforms for more information about the state of the ports. tinc has also full support for IPv6, providing both the possibility of tunneling IPv6 traffic over its tunnels and of creating tunnels over existing IPv6 networks.

Interesting. But it would be very difficult to integrate with the ros I am afraid.

Does it make sense to create addition package with TINC VPN for RouterOS like in PFSENSE or OPNsese ?
Since RouterOS does not have a full mesh VPN option and in current state need to make workaround.
Please add it in RouterOS7 todo list.

I second this notion. tinc would be a very valuable addition to RouterOS's feature list, even if it were an optional pkg

I created an account just to second this feature request ;-)

I work in a web agency; we install MikroTik routers in our clients locations to act as WiFi hotspot for their own clients.

We would like a way to control the routers remotely (ex. forcing reboot, change SSID password if compromised, etc) without the need to open ports in the client's DSL routers.

We could do this if we were able to install tinc on RouterOS.

Thank you for your attention,
Guido

Tinc VPN looks like the most simple and effective way to connect several offices into one network.

As far as I know, for now, similar thing can be done by manually creating n^2/2 tunnels between routers + NAT hole punching is an extra task.
TincVPN should be much simpler and more stale way to go.

+1 for this feature
