cotty is a simple command-line tool to manage pseudo-terminals. It allows users to run processes communicating with each other through their tty as opposed to files, pipes, or sockets. Its main use is to build a VPN (virtual private network) or conversely pierce a firewall.

Release Notes: This release supports FreeBSD (porting to other BSDs should be trivial) and SunOS 5.8 (works well enough, despite a missing feature).
Release Notes: Initial freshmeat announcement.
