This snap relies on the software project Tinc that does the actual work to mesh network segments together. This snap is made to make it easy to get started and you should have a Tinc VPN up and running under five minutes.
This snap will not do zero downtime reloads. When an update is applied, or you change a setting there will be a short interruption in the connection. This should be absolutely fine for most users.
# install it
snap install tunnel
# Run tunnel and follow the instructions, then run tunnel again

Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap can be installed from the command line on openSUSE Leap 42.3, Leap 15 and Tumbleweed.
You need first add the snappy repository from the terminal. Leap 15 users, for example, can do this with the following command:

Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
