  • Wiretrustee: WireGuard-Based Mesh Network
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-06-28
    Don't forget tinc:


    It isn't based on WireGuard, but is a true mesh network, unlike everything you've listed. No central coordination point, every node is equal.

    Think of it as BitTorrent with a few initial peers you set up through a config file, and it learns of every other peer at runtime (like BitTorrent does through Peer Exchange).

    It can forward traffic through other nodes (like Tailscale and unlike Nebula) and recomputes the most efficient route as peers become (un)available.

  • Innernet: Open source Rust based Tailscale alternative by Tonari

    This is awesome, thanks for sharing!

    I really like the simple client/server architecture, that it's easily self-hostable and there are no servers outside of my control.

    The invite system reminds me of the way Tinc[1] handles it, which is great. It's so good to see user friendly tooling on top of WireGuard.

    Tinc VPN (tinc-vpn.org) still has support for TCP-based tunnels; something WG & ZT eschew. It might work for you?
