tinc is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) daemon that uses tunnelling and encryption to create a secure private network between hosts on the Internet.

*** tinc-vpn on armhf architectures will be available soon. ***

Setup: You must manually connect interfaces to the snap:

sudo snap connect tinc-vpn:network-control
sudo snap connect tinc-vpn:network-manager
sudo snap connect tinc-vpn:network-observe
sudo snap connect tinc-vpn:network-setup-control

Then create a directory in /var/snap/tinc-vpn/ called tinc, where you will store configuration files:

sudo mkdir /var/snap/tinc-vpn/tinc

Lastly, set permissions as follows:

sudo chown username:username /var/snap/tinc-vpn/tinc -R
sudo chmod 775 /var/snap/tinc-vpn/tinc -R

After this, follow usual instructions on tinc homepage...

When referencing command tinc-vpn.tincd, you must provide two options:

-c /var/snap/tinc-vpn/tinc/(netname) --pidfile=/run/shm/

and run 'tinc-vpn.tincd' using root privileges e.g. sudo or otherwise. This is to allow tincd to access the virtual tun network device on Linux.
