SSLTunnel is a client/server program to create a PPP connection over a SSL/TLS session.

Client and server are mutually authenticated using a X509 certificate, PPP packets are then encrypted/decrypted realtime on each side.

It's possible to use ssltunnel to connect a machine to another, a machine with a network or two networks sets.

The server part works on Linux and FreeBSD, and might work on other Unix platforms.

The client has been successfully tested on :

  • Linux
  • FreeBSD (A port is available)
  • MacOS X
  • Solaris
  • and, starting September 2004, a Windows 2000, XP et 2003.

The client has the ability to start the connection through an HTTP/HTTPS relay, such as Squid or ISA Server, even if an authentification is needed. It's possible to establish a VPN between a firewall-protected client and a server on the Internet, without modifying any rule on the firewall.

SSLTunnel is used daily by HSC consultants to connect to the corporate network.

SSLTunnel is available under a BSD-style license.

SSLTunnel is written by Alain Thivillon .
