Using vtun over SSH
Connect two networks together using vtun and a single SSH connection.
is a user space tunnel server,
allowing entire networks to be tunneled to each other using the tun
universal tunnel kernel driver. Using an encrypted tunnel such as
vtun allows roaming wireless clients to secure all of their IP
traffic using strong encryption. It currently runs
under Linux, BSD, and Mac OS X. These examples assume that you are
The procedure described next will allow a host with a private IP address (10.42.4.6) to bring up a new tunnel interface with a real, live routed IP address (18.104.22.168) that works as expected, as if the private network weren’t even there. Do this by bringing up the tunnel, dropping the default route, then adding a new default route via the other end of the tunnel.
To begin with, here is the (pretunneled) configuration of the network:
