Projects / Zebedee


Zebedee is a simple program to establish an encrypted, compressed tunnel for TCP/IP or UDP data transfer between two systems. This allows traffic such as telnet, FTP, and X to be protected from snooping as well as potentially gaining performance over low-bandwidth networks from compression.

            A great tool
            A very handy tool, many many uses! I have only just started playing with it and already I've got a buch of compressed tunnels running around the place doing various helpful things.

            If you need a tunnel program, this is it!
