PIA-Tunnel VM is currently switching from Debian to FreeBSD in the master branch! This should not affect anyone since the VM is setup to use the 'release_php-gui' branch
You will receive a notification when the FreeBSD version replaces the Linux VM.


PIA-Tunnel is a series of scripts designed to share an openVPN connection with your network. It supports port forwarding, failover locations, LAN segments and a SOCKS5 proxy. The included web interface makes it easy to setup connections and get the system configured to your network.
The included shell scripts make it possible to control the system from the command line as well.
PIA-Tunnel started out as a virtual machine for VMware Workstation, Player and ESXi but is now being used on KVM, XEN, Hyper-V and other solutions.
PIA-Tunnel is currently being tested on a Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+, with promising results. The combination turns PIA-Tunnel into a stand alone VPN router for your network.
Advanced setups may utilize two network adapters to completely isolate a network or system.
