1 This directory contains the implementation of vnets:
2 virtual private networks for virtual machines.
4 See 00INSTALL for build instructions, doc/ for more information
5 and examples/ for example configurations.
7 The vnet implementation can be run using a kernel module
8 or a user-space daemon. The kernel module is in vnet-module/ and the
9 user-space daemon (varpd) is in vnetd/. The user-space daemon
10 needs the tun/tap kernel module. Vnets use multicast to find
11 virtual interfaces and support broadcast. Either implementation can
12 tunnel multicast packets to other implementations if wide-area
13 multicast routing is not available.
