Is there a VPN available for Haiku?


#1

Are there any VPNs that can be used with Haiku OS? I use NORD VPN with my Windows machine but happy to hear if there is anyone out there developing a VPN to suit Haiku. Thanks.


#2

There is no TUN/TAP driver so VPN clients are currently impossible unfortunately.


#3

I think Tor works through standard environment variables, but it’s not “a VPN” as such?


#4

Thanks guys.

I haven’t tried on Haiku but you can typically use openssh to create a Sox HTTP proxy… which can serve some of the use cases of a VPN.

I think you can use ssh + ppp to create a vpn also without tun/tap.

SSH and PPP would let you establish a connection, but the tun/tap would let all data route through it, if I’m not mistaken

With ssh you can set port redirection rules which allows to do some things. It is not as generic, transparent and easy to use as tun/tap, but it allows to do some things, at least.
