VPN

stable, members only

Members are automatically set up with OpenVPN, which allows both secure access to the internet (protecting you from e.g. public WiFi networks) and direct access to other waffle.tech members connected to the VPN (e.g. for older LAN multiplayer video games). The VPN service is quite fast and respects your privacy.

Members can get more documentation here.
