Zebedee Secure Tunnel
Zebedee is a simple program to establish an encrypted, compressed
"tunnel" for TCP/IP or UDP traffic between two systems. This
allows data from, for example, telnet, ftp and X sessions to be
protected from snooping. You can also use compression, either
with or without data encryption, to gain performance over
The main goals for Zebedee are to:
* Provide client and server functionality under both UNIX
and Windows 95/98/NT.
* Be easy to install, use and maintain with little or no
* Have a small footprint, low wire protocol overhead and
give significant traffic reduction by the use of
* Use only algorithms that are either unpatented or for
which the patent has expired.
* Be entirely free for commercial or non-commercial use and
distributed under the term of the GNU General Public
Licence (see LICENCE.txt for details).
For further information on how to use Zebedee see the file
zebedee.html in the distribution (or the manual page for
zebedee(1) under UNIX -- it is basically the same text). Example
configuration files are also provided.
For instructions on how to build Zebedee see the file
BUILDING.txt in the distribution.
Special Notes for Windows Installations
The installation on Windows systems creates a Start Menu entry
that contains an icon to start a Zebedee server. If you select
this menu entry Zebedee will take its configuration information
from the file "server.zbd" in the Zebedee installation directory.
You may edit this file if you wish to change the server's
The Zebedee service is not installed automatically. If you want
to run Zebedee as a service you must use the "-Sinstall" option
from the command-line.
Zebedee clients will probably, in general, be started from the
command line. However, a file-type association is created by
theinstallation for files of type ".zbd". This can be used to
launch Zebedee clients automatically from Explorer or elsewhere
-- provided that all the necessary information is contained
within the configuration file.
