|I want to operate a server for connecting LAN-mode games. I do not want to share any folders, files, printers or other data, just connect computers over the Internet for gaming. Something like Hamachi does, but better. Hamachi allows only 16 users on a free account and it seems to have high-latency, so I certainly won't pay $199/year for a commercial account.|
I operate my own server locally. I have a Windows 7 web server that also operates an FTP server and TeamSpeak 3 server. I also have a Linux box running IPCop for my firewall/router and that too might be an option. If there's another open source Linux application type software that is easy to run a VPN for gaming, I could switch to this. I've read that Endian has this ability but I've seen no clear tutorial on how it's done. I have set up my Linux box and my web server with Apache, PHP, MySQL, etc. so I'm not a computer newbie, but not a hardcore programmer either.
Please suggest if you can.
