Description

Adding support for ZeroTier with its multi-path feature, would give pfS a better position in the SD-WAN market.

History

#1 Updated by Corey Boyle 5 months ago

Excerpt from https://zerotier.com/blog/2018-05-04-128.shtml

1.4.0 should be our next major release. It includes support for multiple concurrent physical network paths
(discovered automatically in most cases) with load balancing and much faster handling of path failures.
This is step one toward "SD-WAN" features, bringing us closer to our goal of a converged
VPN/SDN/SD-WAN/P2P solution. After automatic path bonding and fast fail-over we will be introducing
support for QoS (quality of service) rules and very likely a plugin architecture for packet classification.

Minimal functionality required would be joining and leaving networks. The controller service is not necessary as that can be done elsewhere on a cheap VPS.

  • Target version changed from 48 to 2.5.0

The integration could be very similar to OpenVPN. An OpenVPN client or server, shows up as a virtual NIC, the same way a ZT network does. ZT virtual NICs could then be assigned to pfS interfaces for firewall purposes.

Seconding this request!

It seems Corey has and ChanceM have already done most of the heavy lifting:

I don't think my code would be of much use, I was just trying to get the package to work with the latest pfS version. ChanceM did the hard part. For the core pfS team, this would probably be trivial to get done.
