Tinc App

Android binding and user interface for the tinc mesh VPN daemon

Main features:


  • Does NOT require root privilege

  • Connection management through a graphical interface

  • Uses conventional tinc configuration files (extended with support for encrypted private keys and VPN bypass per Android application)

  • Automatable using third party Android applications via Intents

Notes:


  • This application is only a VPN client, which is not tied to any VPN service provider by default.

  • It requires an existing tinc network to connect to.

  • For more information about the tinc VPN protocol, see https://www.tinc-vpn.org/

Platform specific limitations of the Android client:


  • Operates with tinc in router mode only

  • Connects to only one tinc network at a time
