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
  • No support for hook scripts
